NoteEXTRA SPECIAL SALE: This is an extra special sale comprised entirely of exceptional specimens drawn from my private collection, being sold to benefit arts philanthropy, as I am moving in a new collecting direction. These specimens represent innumerable upgrades and highlights of my collecting and dealing career, and in many cases are the finest examples of the species which have ever passed through my hands. Please enjoy this opportunity to acquire many outstanding and unique seashells from one of the world’s pre-eminent collections. AMORIA DAMONI KEATSIANA: One of the BEST specimens I have ever seen of this endemic, deep-water, Northern Australian subspecies. A product of the legendary 1970s Taiwanese trawling operations undertaken off the Northern coast of Australia, the majority of examples exhibit either a poorly formed pattern, and/or suffer from growth and trawl damage. This specimen represents the zenith of quality, with no growth damage whatsoever, and a pattern formed with exceedingly rare perfection. For the Volutidae specialist or admirer of exquisite seashells who seeks a ‘top of the line’ example of this particularly beautiful form. Size: 82.4 mm (length). Grading: Gem. Data: Off Wadeye, (Port Keats), Northern Territory, Australia; upon sand/mud/rubble substrate; 200-300 m; trawled; 1974. Provenance: JES private collection; Melbourne/London.
