British Commonwealth - Your willingness to bring order to this stack of randomness will pay dividends! In order of appearance: Great Britain issues up to 2010 (over £60 face value), West Indies, Falklands, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Gilbert and Ellice Islands, Disney (a number of different colonies), Tanzania, Fiji, Ascension, Pitcairn, etc. There is even a roll of Tonga banana issue #225 (over $200.00 catalogue value alone). The lot leans towards mint, and Elizabethan, but there are exceptions to this throughout. A wonderful lot to break apart for the collector or show / internet dealer. Estimate = $180.00
History

52
British Guiana #17/299. Great collection for the specialist, with strength in Queen Victoria era issues. Great range of "Seal of the Colony", but keep a critical eye as a few of the items are obvious forgeries (which we haven’t counted). There are revaluations, officials overprinted and "Specimen" perforated stamps repurposed for usage. The KGV, KGVI and early QEII issues are more used than mint, but often include used examples of the higher values. Bit of duplication, and a small page of cards and glassines which are not counted in the owner’s catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$2259.00 = $3,049.65
History

53
British Guiana / Guyana - Mint and Used collector's arrangement of British Guiana (89 stamps) and Guyana (78 stamps) neatly arranged and identified on stockpages. Expect a few faulty stamps in the earlier material, with most of the earlier mint being Hinged, with the later material Never Hinged. Owner's 2022 Scott US$648.10 = $874.95
History

54
Burma - An assortment of a few hundred stamps on several pages and about 100 covers, create this somewhat messy but interesting assortment of material filling a small box. Noted Burma / India usage, overprints, Japanese occupation etc. In need of a good sort, but should prove rewarding with a bit of philatelic leg-work. Estimate = $180.00
History

55
Burma and Bhutan - Mounted Burma collection with a couple hundred mint and used stamps from 1937-1974 including overprints, WWII-era issues and a bit of "back of the book". The Bhutan is a wholesale lot of INPEX ’73 overprinted souvenir sheet #155G-H, the airmail issue duo imperforate with 60 mint Never Hinged examples (these alone catalogue US$390.00 in Scott). A nice India-adjacent grouping from two countries that have remained popular with collectors. Estimate = $130.00
History

56
Canada #4 Cover. Stunning #4 pair on cover, posted from Montreal on March 13th 1857. The stamps which are 2/3 margin examples are tied by the Montreal 4-ring number "21" postmark, with the pair paying the double rate to Toronto. An attractive usage and an exceptional example of Pence stamps on cover. The Wilson / Firby Posted Letter Guide (2nd Edition 2001) values the 6d double rate using 2x 3d stamps at $800.00 (as fine). Estimate = $500.00
History

57
Canada #4 Cover. VF 4-margin example of the 3d "Beaver" pence issue, on early "Money Letter" folded cover from Perth UC (Upper Canada) to Guelph. The "Money Letter" was the earliest form of registered mail in Canada, with the sender paying the Money Letter fee in cash, in addition to the regular postage needed. A wonderful example of early Canadian registered mail. The Wilson / Firby Posted Letter Guide (2nd Edition 2001) values the 3d rate PLUS Money Letter paid in cash at $1000.00 (as fine). Estimate = $500.00
History

58
Canada #4/45. All used group of Victorian era issues, ranging from a 3p Beaver imperf up to a 10c Small Queen. The complete listing according to the consignor consists of #4, 23, 29, 36a (x 2 shades), 38a (x 2 shades), 39a (x 2 shades), 40, 40c, 40d and 45. Expect a fault or two in a group of this type. Owner's 2024 Scott US$1,520.00 = $2,052.00
History

59
Canada #14, 14a Plus Extras Study Lot. Used group of twenty 1c Victorias from the 1859 "First Cents" issue, selected at random from an old-time hoard. Unchecked for shades, papers, perfs or plate varieties. Generally sound and Fine or better, but expect the odd small fault in a lot of this type. A great assemblage of these popular classics, perfect for the student of early Canadian issues. All valued as the basic (and least expensive) type by Scott catalogue. 2024 Scott US$1,800.00 = $2,430.00
History

60
Canada #14, 15 (x 6), 17a, 18, 19. All used selection of 1859 "First Cents" issues, consisting of the 1c rose, the 5c vermilion (x 6), the 10c violet, the 12½c yellow green and the 17c blue. Unchecked for papers, perfs or other varieties. 2024 Scott US$920.00 = $1,242.00
History

61
Canada #14/1029 Plus Back of the Book. Mostly used 1859 to 1984 period collection of 992 almost all different stamps, including some better singles and complete sets. All Hinged in a Minkus Canada printed album. Most of the value is in Small Queens, Leafs, Numerals, Edwards, GeoV and GeoVI period sets and singles. Apart from the regular issues there is a decent sampling of Back of the Book material including early airmails, postage dues, special deliveries etc. Expect a few faults, but still a very decent basis for expansion. 2024 Scott US$2,271.85 = $3,067.00
History

62
Canada #14/20 The Good the Bad and the Ugly. Mixed condition used study lot of 1859 to 1869 issue "First Cents", consisting of #14 x 1, #17 (Shades) x 10, #18 x 3, #19 x 1 and #20 x 2. While you can expect some faults, none of the stamps have been checked for shades, papers, perfs or plate varieties. All valued as the basic Scott listed types. 2024 Scott US$4,025.00 = $5,433.75
History

63
Canada #15. Nearly "Post Office" fresh and Fine/Very Fine mint full original gum Hinged example of the 1859 issue 5c vermilion "Beaver". A superior quality example of this well-known "First Cents" classic. 2024 Scott US$800.00 = $1,080.00
History

64
Canada #15, 15iii. Very Fine used examples of the 1859 issue 5c Beaver, printed on both the regular and the Unitrade listed very thick papers. Both lightly cancelled and well centered. 2024 Unitrade = $350.00
History

65
Canada #24, 24b. Fresh appearing mint (probably not OG) examples of the 1868 issue 2c green Large Queen, one on regular paper, the other on thin paper. Note small faults (irregular perfs) on both stamps. 2024 Scott US$3,000.00 = $4,050.00
History

66
Canada #24b. VF mint example of the 2c green Large Queen on thin paper. Hinged on what may or may not be original gum. Deep rich green shade. An attractive Canadian classic. 2024 Scott US$1500.00 = $2,025.00
History

67
Canada #30a. Two sound and Fine used examples of the elusive 1873 printing of the 15c Large Queen, perf 11½ x 12. Slightly different shades noted. 2024 Scott US$1,000.00 = $1,350.00
History

68
Canada #34/314. All Fine to Very Fine mint OG Hinged collection of 203 different 1870s to 1950s issue stamps, all laid out on four Hagner stock sheets. The group includes a nice range of Small Queens, Jubilees, Leafs, Numerals, Xmas Maps, Edwards, Tercentenaries, Admirals, Scrolls, Arch/Leafs, War and Peace sets plus more, including commemorative sets, coils and imperfs. While the odd small fault is to be expected, there are more than enough Very Fine stamps in the selection to satisfy the quality conscious collector. This lot is the perfect mint Canadian starter collection for the collector who doesn't mind a bit of hinging. 2024 Scott US$3,308.10 = $4,465.95
History

69
Canada #34/666. Older style, but near-new, Schaubek hingeless album with pages to 1975. An attractive, but a bit random grouping of mint and used issues. Doesn’t really get going until the Quebec issue (mint to 5c), followed by an almost complete mint set of "Admirals", GeoV "Scrolls" mint to the 12c (with a used Bluenose), low value Geo V "Arch" mint and the rest of the 1930’s issues (including back of the book) either mint or used. The GeoVI era includes mint examples of the Peace set / Fish dollar, followed by a number of "OHMS" and "G" overprints. The Elizabethan issues up to the Montreal Olympics are fairly complete and all mint. Some of the mint are Never Hinged (including the Admiral dollar), but are Lightly Hinged / Hinged with the minor faults here and there. Enormous catalogue value. Estimate = $300.00
History

70
Canada - Accumulation of 2c and 3c Small Queens in a blue 32-page Uni-Safe stockbook. Starts with a page of 10x 2c denominations perforated 11.5x12, including two pairs. The bulk of the lot is an eye-catching run of 484 examples of the 3c Small Queen with cork/fancy cancels, circular date stamps (with lots of readable cancels) and shades. Stamps are in above average condition for holdings like this. 19th century researcher’s delight! Estimate = $200.00
History

71
Canada - Small Queen, old-time holding of 675 stamps mounted on oversized pages. Mostly #37 and #41, but includes some 1c, 2c and 8c values. Mostly town cancels and lots of readable dates. Includes obvious potential for studying shades and perforations and varieties. Many in top condition, but expect the odd fault. Finding unpicked lots is getting harder and the catalogue value adds up quickly! Estimate = $200.00
History

72
Canada #37,41. Ten stockpages filled with 887 used 3c Small Queens that are laden with cork and circular date cancels, but also with potential for students of shades, perforations and varieties. While a few minor faults can be expected, the overall condition is quite good. A past collector had started sorting into Ottawa vs. Montreal printings, but hadn’t gotten very far, so there is lots to explore here. Estimate = $200.00
History

73
Canada #38a, 39b, 40c. Used trio of perf 11½ x 12 Small Queens, consisting of the 5c slate green, the 6c yellow brown and 10c dull rose lilac. 2024 Scott US$437.50 = $590.65
History

74
Canada #50-60. Mostly Fine/Very Fine and sound all mint Hinged/Hinge Remnant part set of eleven 1897 QV Jubilees, running from the ½c black up to and including the 50c ultramarine value. The 50c value has a shallow marginal thin noted for the record. A decent start to a complete mint set. 2024 Scott US$1,778.00 = $2,400.30
History

75
Canada #61. Fresh and Fine+ attractively centered used example of the 1897 issue $1.00 lake Queen Victoria Jubilee. "TORONTO ONT 6" roller cancel. A better than good start to the dollar high values of this popular 19th Century series. 2024 Scott Classic US$750.00 = $1,012.50
History

76
Canada #62. Perfectly centered and Very Fine+ used example of the $2.00 dark purple 1897 issue Queen Victoria Jubilee. Vibrantly fresh and with a sharp and clear "TORONTO ONT 6" roller cancel. A lovely high value Jubilee! 2024 Scott US$550.00 = $742.50
History

77
Canada #65. Fresh and Fine/Very Fine centered used example of the $5.00 olive green 1897 QV Diamond Jubilee issue high value. Legible "MONTREAL QUE 9" roller cancel. Shallow Hinge thin at top noted for the record. Still a very decent and more than acceptable Jubilee top value. 2024 Scott US$1,000.00 = $1,350.00
History

78
Canada #66, 85, 90, 96, 98. Very Fine and pristine mint Never Hinged quintet of 1897 to 1908 Queen Victoria and EdwardVII period issues, consisting of the ½c Leaf, 2c Map and 2c Edward plus the ½c and 2c Quebec Tercentenaries. Unitrade is $890.00 for the Very Fine mint Never Hinged group. 2024 Scott US$444.50 = $600.10
History

79
Canada #66/2416. The better part of 1000 blocks. Includes both mint and used, individually mounted in "102" cards and then ordered in photo albums. Notable better mint includes 5c Laurier, 3c Scroll, 50c Oil Wells, CE1-CE2 and a number of issues into the 1980’s which will have some useful face value. Better used includes 1/2c QV Leaf, 13c Silver Jubilee, $1.00 Chateau, $2.00 QEII Jubilee issue, and many with nice cancels throughout. Attractiveness and value throughout. Estimate = $180.00
History

80
Canada #75, 92. Re-entry study on 1c Queen Victoria numeral (61 stamps) and the 7c King Edward VII (11 stamps). Each mounted with an enlarged reproduction of the stamp and the re-entry highlighted in red ink (including some major re-entries). The condition of the stamps is generally excellent, and the notations are easy to follow. Perfect for starting or expanding a collection of these engraved issues. Ex-Bill MacDonald (former editor of the BNAPS Re-Entry Study Group Newsletter). Estimate = $200.00
History

81
Canada #89-92. Pleasantly fresh and F/VF Mint Hinged /Hinge remnant quartet of 1903 issue Edwards. Light diagonal crease noted on the 5c value (for the record). Still a great start to a mint set. 2023 Scott US$575.00 = $776.25
History

82
Canada #96, 96i. Full MNH sheet of 100 of the 1908 issue half cent Quebec Tercentenary commemorative, plate #1 inscription at top. This sheet includes the Scott Classic and Unitrade listed re-entry on this sheet at position 44. Some separation and the odd bend / selvedge fault noted (as usual), but far better than we would expect for large sheets of this type and age. 2024 Scott US$2737.00 = $3,694.95
History

83
Canada #96-103. Complete mint Hinged/Hinge Remnant eight stamp commemorative pictorial set issued for the Quebec Tercentenary of 1908. A very popular early 20th century series. 2024 Scott Classic US$1,138.00 = $1,536.30
History

History

86
Canada #125/730. Coils & Booklets Jackpot! A "vest-pocket" dealer's small red 3-ring album, with pages to fir "102" cards, filled with mint and used Canadian coil and booklet issues. Not your traditional "dealer stock" as this collector was only interested in selling his duplicates to help his fellow collector at local shows and stamp clubs in BC's interior. The items are "priced to sell" as you will see from the photos, and include many better items throughout. Perfect for the collector to fill in some gaps, or for the show / internet dealer to add some premium inventory. Owner's older catalogue value adds up to $3940.00 with his "sale price" being well under half of that overall. Estimate = $500.00
History

87
Canada #130b. Fresh and Fine mint NH pair of the 1923 issue 3c carmine GeoV Admiral coil, perf 8 vertical, Die II, dry printing. 2024 Scott Classic US$450.00 = $607.50
History

All sound, fresh and Fine/Very Fine mint Hinged selection 176 different 1915 to 1952 period GeoV and GeoVI period issues, including both regular stamps and "Back of the Book" material. Loads of complete sets and better singles. All laid out on black stock sheets for ease of inspection. 2024 Scott US$2,170.60 = $2,930.30
History

89
Canada #162-177, 178-183, 191. Mint Hinged 1930-1931 GeoV "Arch/Leaf" set of 16 stamps, plus the six coils, an additional 5c dull violet rotary printing and a 3c surcharge on 2c deep red. All still neatly Hinged on the original quadrille album page. The $1.00 Cavell high value is particularly nice. 2023 Scott US$588.00 = $793.80
History

90
Canada #195-201, 205-207. Fresh and Fine/Very Fine mint Never Hinged complete 1932-1933 issue Geo V "Medallion" set of seven, plus the three Medallion coil issues. 2024 Scott US$351.00 = $473.85
History

91
Canada #203 Variety. Fresh and F/VF mint NH block of four of the 20c brown red Harvester with the "WORLD'S GRAIN EXHIBITION & CONFERENCE / REGINA 1933" overprint. Note some damage to the "X" in the overprint on the lower left stamp in the block (not the "Broken X" but noticeable nonetheless). 2023 Scott Classic US$280.00 = $378.00
History

92
Canada #231-236, 241-245, 241a, C6. All VF and almost all Never Hinged (only #244 and 245 are Hinged) selection of 1937-1938 GeoVI issues, including the Chateau Ramezay pictorial set (with the extra shade of the 10c value) and the 6c airmail that goes with the set. All still mounted on the original Minkus album page. 2023 Scott US$191.20 = $258.10
History

93
Canada #288/363. Plate block study or dealer lot, with lots of better. While there is a bit of GeoVI and some commemoratives (e.g. fur trade, Capex, Pulp, Chemical), by far the most comprehensive is the Wilding issue (1c-6c plus the 15c Gannet) in many different plates, most in matched sets. We noted individual plate blocks with catalogue values to $15.00 each. A quick survey showed most to be lightly hinged, and overall centering and condition is above average. From the classic era of Canadian plate block collecting, and not often seen in this quantity (with up to 5 matched sets of an issue). While there are no tagged issues, this should prove to be a nice study group of the regular issues, unchecked for paper types. 2024 Unitrade = $1,911.50
History

94
Canada #337p-341p, 401p-405p Plus 4c Cameo Tagged Varieties. Bileski assembled and marketed matched sets of Winnipeg Tagged QEII Wilding and Cameo definitive corner and plate blocks. The group consists of complete mint Never Hinged and (January 13th 1962 First Day cancelled) used blocks of Winnipeg tagged Wildings including plates 1 and 2 of the 3c value. The Cameos include a basic set of Winnipeg tagged blocks plus four additional Unitrade listed tagging varieties of the 4c value (carefully and accurately identified) and an extra deep purple shade of the tagged 3c value. A very comprehensive and valuable offering. A wonderful chance to take advantage of Kasimir Bileski's foresight and attention to detail (the lot includes all of Bileski's notes and packaging). 2024 Unitrade = $1,097.00
History

95
Canada #387/1271. Sextet of binders with First Day Covers issued over 30 years (but not a complete run). Includes an array of private cachets (including local productions) which run into the 1970’s, Canada Post cachets and some uncacheted. Where there is duplication, it is because there are different cachets. About 250 covers, including MPO (Military Post Office) cancels than you would not normally expect to see in a lot such as this. The first volume (1959-1963) need to be cleaned up, but removing the covers should address this. Otherwise the condition is good. Estimate = $130.00
History

96
Canada #399 WITH DRAMATIC VIGNETTE SHIFT. Very Fine mint Never Hinged matched set of inscription blocks of the 5c black and rose 1962 "Victoria, BC" commemorative, each block with very dramatically shifted central vignettes of the BC #1 illustration. An eye-catching set of blocks. Estimate = $150.00
History

97
Canada #454-465B, 466-468A, 550. Mint Never Hinged holding of QEII Centennial issues, arranged and identified (at least partially) within glassine envelopes. A good "study group" run from 1c to $1.00 and including some coils (noted 4x #467ii jump-strips of four). Estimate = $120.00
History

98
Canada #457c/952 Bileski Specials Lot. Two Kasimir Bileski special offerings, sold in 1987 for $200.00. Intact as originally offered, the lot consists of three different used Centennial miniature panes as well as a Very Fine mint Never Hinged selection of coils, each packaged as a single, pair, strip of four and "spacing variety" strips of four. Unitrade now lists most modern coil spacing varieties. This lot demonstrates Bileski's attention to detail as a master of philatelic promotion and marketing. The stamps come with all the original paperwork including the invoice. Estimated at less than Bileski's 37 year-old original retail! Estimate = $150.00
History

99
Canada #519-523, 524-528, 522i, 525i. Complete se-tenant sheets of 100 of the 1970 issue 5c and 6c Christmas stamps featuring the much sought after identical centre blocks of four and all sorts of Darnell listed and Unitrade noted identical pairs (not counted here). Each sheet is valued by Unitrade as one centre block, four plate blocks of ten, eight strips of five and sixteen singles. The 6c in the centre block does not have the "scratch through window" (scarcer and thus worth a 50% premium) and the 5c in the centre block has the "dot between M and A". Each VF MNH sheet is brilliantly pristine and lightly folded once (mentioned for the record). 2024 Unitrade = $584.00
History

100
Canada #599, 600, 726, 726a, 934, 934iii. High-value $1.00 definitive PLATE NUMBER grouping. A VF mint Never Hinged group of 1972-1985 $1.00 definitive series matched sets of inscription blocks, for both Plate #1 and Plate #2 of each of their respective printings. Includes the 1972/1973 "Vancouver", 1979/1981 "Fundy National Park" and 1984/1985 "Glacier National Park". A nice group to get at one time. 2024 Unitrade = $420.00

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". Balkan eye candy to spice up your collection. Estimate =

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 =

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 =

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 =

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 =

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 =

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 =

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 =

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 =

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 =
