Australia - This big "D"-ring binder holds about 70 Vario-brand stockpages with a confusing accumulation of "everything Australia". Somewhere in here are a couple of pages of "States", some "Roos" and GeoV "Heads". The rest of the sterling era is a mix of mint and used, sorted chronologically. The Decimal era is partially chronological, partly by denomination, with more used than mint (and with quantities up to 10 of a kind), this is an extensive collection that runs into the early 2000’s, with lots of medium to high values. There are bits of Antarctic Territory and other administrated Islands, plus the 1981 and 1982 Australian year books. While there is not tons of mint material, there is still over A$60.00 in usable face value, not counting the modern mint "Specimen" overprints. There could easily be more hiding here. Estimate = $160.00
History

17
Australia and States - A Down-Under disaster. The Australian material is mostly used, with a Stanley Gibbons album with pages to 1990 holding several hundred different. Complementing this is a group of manila stocksheets, a dealer’s packet stock nicely sorted in envelopes (Scott #2/#991), a few remnants from bidboard lots and retired circuit books. There is a touch of modern mint here, including a couple of hardcover year sets as well as the infamous 1988 Australian Bicentennial booklet set. Some Cocos (Keeling) Islands slipped in here, with a large handful of heavily duplicated presentation folders circa 1979. Oh yeah - the States (which are possibly the best part of this lot) include a page of attractive Tasmania, plus a couple of album pages and a double-sided page from a small stockbook with items from New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia and more Tassie. Enjoy bringing this under control. Estimate = $200.00

The early issues are mostly used, with different shades, types and perforations easily laid out, with many having readable cancels. Individual items with catalogue values between $10.00-$100.00 each are found throughout. Around the end of WWI, more mint appears (most are Hinged, but there are Never Hinged as noted by the collector). The "back of the book" is equally expansive with quality offerings of semi-postals, airmail, postage due, military and newspaper stamps. Bonus material includes a few reprints, fantasy and revenues. Grab your specialized catalogues, because offerings like this don’t come around often. Estimate = $500.00

Bosnia and Herzegovina #11/29. Imperforates and die proofs on two stock pages. Missing only the three key values, but covering 11 of the 14 denominations of the 1900 Coat of Arms with the denominations in the lower corners (in white) are represented, as are all five denominations of the 1901-1904 printings with the denominations in black. All on gummed paper of issue, including some selvage. The five die proofs of the black numeral issue are printed in black ink on a very thin card, and each is stamped on the back "MW".

History

30
Bosnia and Herzegovina #30/64. Specialized "Landscape" issue of 1906-1912 on 14 Vario-brand stockpages. You will need a Scott Classic, Michel or Stanley Gibbons to keep some order to this collection, but the collector has done an excellent job to help you understand what is here. Starting with a basic mint and used set, followed by an imperforate set (both mint and used) and a complete used set of the perf 9 1/4. The "Birthday Jubilee" issue is missing the 2Kr value from both mint and used sets, and the later values include a mint set and imperf set and a set with switched colours. There are some red cancels, some revenue punched. On the proof side, there is a near complete set of imperforate proof singles in black, on ungummed stamp paper. Finally, there is a group of singles and blocks of the lower values that are in both similar and different colours than actually issued, which may be colour trials. Expect most of the mint to be Hinged and there is a bit of duplication, including some better, such as a mint Never Hinged block of #45a (catalogues $240.00). Estimate = $300.00
History

31
Bosnia and Herzegovina #65/85. Emperor Franz Josef issue of 1912 to 1914 in a lovely, specialized collection, some of which is beyond the listings of Scott Classic. Interestingly, there isn’t a complete mint basic set of these stamps, but there is lots of mint singles (most Hinged, some Never Hinged). The used does include a complete used set, as well as extra (stamped) used singles (such as two extra copies of the #85 high value, cataloguing $125.00 each). The collection includes a smattering of different perforations, and noted a stained 10Kr in slate green, which might be a colour trial, but possibly a changeling. Basic Scott Classic catalogue value will be several hundred dollars, with potential beyond that. Estimate = $160.00
History

32
Bosnia and Herzegovina #86/140. Final four issues from Bosnia and Herzegovina: a specialized offering. The reworked Franz Josef issue includes a mint Hinged and a complete used set, PLUS, a set of imperforate singles (Scott $260.00), and a second set of imperf singles with the stamps in different colours than issued. The first Karl I section catalogues $450.00 in Scott Classic and includes a mint and a used set, plus mint perforation varieties #105a, 105b, 116a and a very attractive set of imperforate singles. The 1918 overprint duo takes up a full page with mint, used, inverted, doubled, etc. and different perforations beyond the scope of Scott Classic. The last page is the final Karl I set of 1918, cleanly mint, missing the very valuable 1Kr denomination. A terrific offering. Estimate = $200.00
History

33
Bosnia and Herzegovina #B1/B20, P1/P4, QE1-QE2. Specialized collection of semi-postals, newspaper and special delivery issues. We noted various overprint types and plating studies on the "Landscape" issues (including two panes of 50 that were still in their original packaging from an auction house). The Franz Josep issues include better types, in both mint and used examples (catalogue up to $100.00 each in Scott Classic). There are mint, Never Hinged, imperforate pairs of the 1917 anniversary of the Archduke Ferdinand (catalogue $180.00), as well as a set of mint singles, double prints and a lovely group of 14 colour trials. B18-B20 are found in imperforate singles, and possible trial colours, including singles and pairs in grey. The Newspaper stamps are found mint and used, as well as a set of forgeries. There is some duplication and multiples that aren’t mentioned here. An outstanding lot. Estimate = $300.00
History

34
Bosnia and Herzegovina #J1/J13. Specialized postage due collection neatly mounted and annotated on Vario-brand stockpages. Includes lots of mint, such as a basic set of the perf 12 1/2 and imperforate sets (these catalogue $400.00 in Scott Classic). There are different perforations, gums, printings, followed by some equally nice used examples. Even includes a glassine with some stamps that the collector hadn’t gotten around to organizing. About 300 stamps, with significant catalogue values as well as a high degree of difficulty to assemble. Estimate = $200.00
History

35
Bosnia and Herzegovina #J1f-J13f. Set of mint (mostly) Never Hinged postage due pairs of the unusual 9 1/4 x 12 1/2 perforation. Fresh, reasonably centered, and all Never Hinged, with the exception of one of the 8h values, which is Lightly Hinged and one of the 10h values which has the slightest of gum disturbances. Perfect as they come or you can break them up and recover some of your investment. 2023 Scott Classic US$879.50 = $1,187.33
History

36
Bosnia and Herzegovina #J14/J26. Final postage due set of 1916-1918, with a complete mint Hinged and used set, plus 9 of the 13 denominations mint Never Hinged and a complete mint set of imperforate pairs (the latter are ever so Lightly Hinged).

History

37
Bosnia and Herzegovina - Massive town cancel collection, on stamp or piece, sorted by town, by cancel type and then by date. The first binder has 35 Vario-brand stock pages (most are 7-8 strip), with space left for missing items. A wide range of stamps are found here, including "back of the book". There are a few pages at the end with cut squares from used parcel cards. The second, smaller, binder contains 11 more Vario stockpages and a manila stockpage of "extras" but these cancels are strictly from Sarajevo. Overall, a few hundred stamps from many dozens of different post offices. Given the other collections from this collector, expect the condition to be high quality, the descriptions to be accurate and better items to be lurking. Comes with a cerlox-bound copy of Tenczar’s 1992 version of the "Checklist of Town Cancels of Bosnia and Herzegovina (1878-1918)" - unchecked. A true labour of love and almost impossible to duplicate. Estimate = $250.00
History

38
Bosnia and Herzegovina - This very organized and methodical specialized collector ended up with a bunch of purchases from dealers and auction houses that he never got around to processing. There are mounted collections, dealer cards, stock pages covering the full range of issues, including "back of the book". Some were purchased for their cancels, some are sets, some are collections. The only consistency is that there is disorganization here, some duplication, and the potential for better items. If you want to test your proficiency and knowledge of Bosnian material - this is your chance. Offered as received. Estimate = $150.00
History

39
Brazil #1886. Feverish purchase: the second half. This 1983 souvenir sheet with a 376cr face value honours the 100th anniversary of the death of Louis Breguet, noted for his early work with telegraphs, and fittingly shown with both telegraph lines as well as a transmitter. Because they are now over 40 years old, we have replaced most of the rubber bands, otherwise this is just as purchased. Each glassine has 10 copies, each bundle has 10 glassines and there are 10 bundles. Total 1000 very fine mint Never Hinged souvenir sheets. 2023 Scott $7500.00 = $10,125.00

Australia - This big "D"-ring binder holds about 70 Vario-brand stockpages with a confusing accumulation of "everything Australia". Somewhere in here are a couple of pages of "States", some "Roos" and GeoV "Heads". The rest of the sterling era is a mix of mint and used, sorted chronologically. The Decimal era is partially chronological, partly by denomination, with more used than mint (and with quantities up to 10 of a kind), this is an extensive collection that runs into the early 2000’s, with lots of medium to high values. There are bits of Antarctic Territory and other administrated Islands, plus the 1981 and 1982 Australian year books. While there is not tons of mint material, there is still over A$60.00 in usable face value, not counting the modern mint "Specimen" overprints. There could easily be more hiding here. Estimate =
