All fresh and Fine to Very Fine mint Hinged (mostly Very Fine and Lightly Hinged) collection of 124 different 1937 to 1965 period issues, all neatly laid out, identified and valued on four Hagner brand stock sheets. Consists of a range of all complete sets for the GeoVI and QEII era. As well as Aden proper (#13/74), the lot consists of Seiyun (#1/41), Mukalla (#1/52) and Federated South Arabia (#1-26). Total 2024 Scott US$364.30 = $491.81 $32.00
2 Antigua #43/212. All fresh and Fine to Very Fine all mint Hinged (mostly Very Fine and Lightly Hinged) collection of 124 different 1921 and then 1937 to 1968 period issues, all complete sets from 1937 up and all neatly laid out, identified and valued on four Hagner brand stock sheets. 2024 Scott US$253.20 = $341.82 $26.00
3 Antigua #106/693. Elizabethan issues up to 1983, quite complete with 28 souvenir sheets. About half of the stamps are never hinged in black mounts, and most of the souvenir sheets are never hinged. All on Minkus album pages, with bit of "and Barbuda" at the end. Good range of issues, many sets and lots of topical interest. Owner’s 2023 Scott US$470.45 = $641.85 $10.00
4 Antigua / Barbuda - Group of mostly Elizabethan issues, up to 2000 including lots of complete sets, souvenir sheets and overprints on Antiguan issues for sale in Barbuda. Lots of topical interest, including airplanes, birds, "stamp on stamp" etc. Most of the more recent will be mint, never hinged and all appear to be in excellent condition (except 20,000 Leagues sheetlet). The "new issue" pricing on these issues gave collectors pause, which is why there is now a scramble to fill in collections from these missing years. Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
5 Ascension #1/124. All fresh and Fine to Very Fine mint, mostly Very Lightly Hinged 1921 to 1969 period collection of 102 different stamps, all neatly laid out, identified and valued on three Hagner brand stock sheets. Apart from the single #1, all complete GeoV, GeoVI and QEII period sets and a complete run from 1934 up to 1969. 2024 Scott US$725.15 = $978.95 $44.00
6 Australia #1/378. Can dealer’s stocks ever be considered "fun"? We think that this one meets the test. Starts with lots of used ‘Roos and GeoV "Heads", which a quick check of some of the better indicates that they are accurately identified with cancel potential everywhere and unchecked for print varieties. This is followed by a number of mint 1930’s issues with value, including 3x pound-value "Robes" and 2x £2 "Arms" and a £1 Explorer. There are several mint and used blocks which include some imprint blocks. The binder evolves into a used collection of the same era (lots of nice SON cancels) with a bit of "States" material. Finally, there are three collection fragments from 1930 to 2000, with everything from a mint pound "Arms" to modern used commemoratives. Not your usual grab bag from down-under. Estimate = $240.00 $55.00
7 Australia #57, 101, 127, 128. Quartet of high value "Roos" overprinted "Specimen" from three different sets. Nice fresh appearances, but three of four have hinge remnants. Great to fill the space until the real one comes along! Pro-rata from 2018 Stanley Gibbons (where these are listed) £560.00 = $924.00 $50.00

The lot includes the two 1931 issue 2sh and 3sh "Seal of Bahamas" high values, 1938 to 1951 issue ½p to £1 GeoVI definitives and the 1942 Columbus overprints. Conservatively valued as either the basic types or the more commonly found shade/paper varieties. Could easily be upside for types better than the ones that have been valued here by Scott. Stanley Gibbons will certainly be higher. 2023 Scott Classic US$473.30 = $639.23 $55.00
10 Barbados #193/311. All Fine to Very Fine almost all mint (#216-227 are used) Very Lightly Hinged 1937 to 1968 period collection of 118 almost all different stamps, all neatly laid out, identified and valued on four Hagner brand stocksheets.

Almost all VF mint Hinged 1938 to 1953 GeoVI (plus the QEII Coronation commemorative) period issues, 34 stamps in total, all still mounted on the original printed and quadrille album pages.

17 Bermuda #123/128. Mint and used selection of 20 GeoVI era "Key plates", all laid out on one Hagner stock sheet. Includes perf 13 and perf 14 type, as well as shades. The consignor has valued all the stamps as the most basic Scott types. 2024 Scott US$410.25= $553.84 $60.00

19 British Africa - Catch-all of old auctions lots, that were purchased, but never processed by the collector. Ranging from QV "classics" to 1990’s issues, there are several hundred mint and used stamps with singles and sets alike. We noted some Gold Coast has some cancel potential, a selection of Somaliland items that have nice eye appeal and a group of 202 mint (mostly NH) stamps from Namibia. There are also a few album pages with mint Nyasaland/Malawi, a nice selection of used Zimbabwe, #81/94 from Southern Rhodesia (cat $98.00; mint,hinged) and a touch of Sierra Leone to round out the lot.

Fresh appearance, but almost all have heavy hinging and damage from adhesion (likely from original presentation booklet or archive). Still an eye-catching addition for your collection. Total 2018 Stanley Gibbons (pro-rata) £189.50 = $303.20 $10.00
21 British Carribean - Assortment of British Colonies from a wide range of sources, with strength in the Elizabethan era. The best is likely a binder of mint St.Vincent (1970-1982) and a page of classic Virgin Islands, followed up with two "Official" overprinted flower sets (never hinged). There is a battered 3-pocket stockbook filled with 1970’s to 1982 mint Barbados and a better stockbook with used Barbados. There are also loose album and stock pages with Granada, Antigua, Barbuda, Dominica, British Guiana/Guyana, Jamaica and St. Lucia. The lot ends with a Minkus British America album that has seen better days, but might have the odd better item here or there. Estimate = $150.00 $11.00
22 British Commonwealth - Australia & Pacific Island focused box lot, with albums, presentation packs and a year set. Noted a bundle of Fiji, Niue, Tokelau and a sleeve of large blocks of Papua New Guinea used postage dues. Some nice cancels on the Australian States material.

Didn’t notice much Canada, Great Britain or New Zealand, but thousands of stamps here that will take some time to explore. Estimate = $150.00 $30.00
23 British Commonwealth - Banker’s box accumulation. This lot starts with UK on pages, including a couple dozen #33 and a swath of attractive QV issues. Next are pages, envelopes and containers with various material from around the Empire including notable Australia and New Zealand (but there are bits from everywhere). A bit disorganized, but that’s where the fun starts! Thousands of mint and used stamps here. Estimate = $140.00 $24.00
24 British Commonwealth - Bankers box of assorted bits of albums, stockbooks, approval sheets and old auction lots (purchased and then ignored). Some of the individual countries include Leeward Islands, Jamaica, Montserrat, Turks and Caicos, Norfolk and Papua New Guinea. There are a few volumes that have assorted stamps from across the Empire, some mint, some used. Didn’t see many complete sets but most of the material is pre-1975. These individual items cost the original collector several hundred dollars. Estimate = $200.00 $24.00
25 British Commonwealth - Random representation of the Empire in a bankers box. Lot includes albums, stockbooks, old auction lots, loose pages and loose stamps. While there are a couple of individual country albums (Cook Islands early 70s, Ghana, Malaya & States), the majority of the lot is a random assortment of miscellaneous bits and pieces. A quick flip shows there to be potential at every turn, including cancels and just overlooked better stamps. Thousands of stamps in total, a perfect way to cheaply add to your collection and make some friends with the items you don’t need. Estimate = $140.00 $32.00

132 Canada #1630ai. Unopened Post Office pack, containing 50 examples of the 1996 Lunar New Years souvenir sheet with the "Hong Kong 97" logo printed on the bottom right corner. These souvenir sheets were specially printed for sale at the 1997 International Stamp Show held in Hong Kong. As this pack is still sealed, it is unchecked for the #1630ci missing gold variety. 2023 Unitrade = $500.00 $40.00
133 Canada #2844, 2845, 2847 (x 2), 2857, 2858.

134 Canada #3098ii. Uncut Press Sheet of the 2018 Queen Elizabeth II 85th Anniversary of Coronation issue.

The face value of the stamps alone is $110.40, which is more than the original issue price of $102.00 due to the increase in "P" stamp value. 2023 Unitrade $205.00 $80.00
135 Canada #BK30c/BK41b. Mini-hoard of 26 complete KGVI booklets (most War Issue, but some Mufti and couple later), with generally sharp corners, no penciled notes and minimal oxidation of the staples.

Sharp corners, no writing and minimal staple oxidation. Unpriced in Unitrade with the note: "an example has been reported to the editors". Based on the source, we don’t believe that this is the reported example and is likely the second reported copy. A must-have for any GeoVI / War Issue or booklet collector. Estimate = $400.00 $130.00

Includes light to heavy duplication, including 70 mint copies of #E3, about 1/3 of which are never hinged, along with good numbers of E6 and E8. Expect condition to be a bit mixed throughout.

A few hundred stamps in total, unchecked for horizontal or vertical ribbing on the QEII Wilding issues and a good study of the different "G" positions (although none extreme).

167 Canada - Booklet "Covers Only" hoard. Calling responsible collectors of complete booklets. Want to display the insides of your booklets without resorting to "exploding" perfectly good (and expensive) booklets? This lot has a couple hundred booklets that only appear to be missing the stamps, meaning you can open these up and show what is inside (and still feel guilt free). The group starts with the "Admiral" period, with an astonishing number of booklet types, with different covers (including overprints, and languages), followed by more GeoV (e.g. Arch issue), lots of KGVI booklets (a number of "chewing gum" covers) and some QEII up to the Centennial era. There is definitely duplication, with some partially exploded already. We aren’t sure how these came to be accumulated, but we know that it is a rare chance to acquire this research and display opportunity. Estimate = $140.00 $16.00
168 Canada - From the sublime to the ridiculous! Bankers box filled with a bit of everything including loose pages, stockcards and miscellaneous material. We noted a pair of the 20c Quebec used on piece and some decent "back of the book" material. Expect to have to do some digging to sort it out. The bulk of the lot is several binders with KGVI to 1900’s used material on manila and black stock pages. There is probably some overlooked material here and always potential for postmark seekers. Estimate = $140.00 $16.00
169 Canada - Hoard of used stamps in albums, loose pages, stockbooks and folios filling a bankers box. Mostly 20th century, includes a stock book of Admirals, some back of the book, potential cancel interest and lots of medium-value stamps throughout. Most come from the remnants of estates and this material has received a cursory look over, revealing there is potential everywhere. There is also some added value in the supplies that should be considered (stockbooks, stockpages etc). A good way to spend a few darker, fall evenings. Estimate = $120.00 $16.00
170 Canada - Mint Early QEII Collection in Lighthouse Hingeless Album. VF condition "top of the line" Lighthouse SF (Hingeless) album with matching slipcase, pages from 1851 up to 1986, containing a very comprehensive QEII period mint NH collection of regular issues (no “back of the book”). Noted dollar values, Winnipeg tags and much more, including numerous better sets and singles. The retail price of the SF Canada album and slipcase is $470.00 and the total useable face value of the stamps in the album is $173.00. Excellent basis for expansion or for the Canadian collector only interested in the earlier material. Estimate = $325.00 $180.00
171 Canada - Modern Mint in Lindner Album. "Nearly new" top-of -the line single volume burgundy Lindner album containing high quality Hingeless Canada pages running from 1983 up to 1993 (Lindner pages #84-139).

The entire collection is conservatively valued for the useable face value of the mint postage only. Total face value = $462.41 $190.00
173 Canada - Mostly used collections including a collector’s duplicates and stock hoard, all lovingly (but tightly) packed into a bankers box. While there is a bit of Victorian era material, most is 20th century including some back of the book. Unchecked for cancels, but a cursory look revealed some better single stamps here and there. Don’t overlook the value in a couple of nice stock books and the manila and Vario-brand pages found throughout. A good sort ahead for the Canadian stamp hound. Estimate = $120.00 $24.00
174 Canada - The 1999/2000 Millennium Collection (Unitrade catalogue Thematic Collection #89). VF condition carton load of 61 examples of the popular "sleeper" Official Millennium Keepsake Collection issued by Canada Post for the 1999/2000 Millennium. The flat tin, embossed with a dove in flight, contains a trio of single stamp panes #1812i, 1813i and 1814i (46c, 55c and 95c values) which were only available in the tin, a pre-paid worldwide post card and a quarter-sized token. Overlooked by most collectors who bought the heavily promoted coffee table souvenir book and the more readily available stamp panes of four. Each "keepsake" collection catalogues $22.50 in Unitrade. A great investment/dealer lot. Face value alone is $119.56. Original retail was over $600.00! Total 2023 Unitrade = $1,372.50 $55.00
175 Canada - Turn back the clock - used wholesale stock in envelopes. Not one, not two, but THREE U-Haul boxes worth compiled from four or five different sources. Strength is in late KGV era up to about 2010. Thousands upon thousands of stamps with a mix of definitives and commemoratives. By definition, most of the material will be common, but a spot check showed some better (such as 10 copies of the 1933 Regina Grain overprint), but this is for the patient collector who likes to separate wheat from chaff. There is some loose on-paper material here too (just in case you needed more to sort through). Estimate = $250.00 $24.00
176 Canada - U-haul "book box", with Canadian collection "orphans". Lot includes a Darnell album, a couple of stockbooks, some loose album and stock pages, five old metal cigarette tins, an "Irvings Candies" box and a 60-year dealer’s box of envelopes (the box is 60 years old, we don’t know how old the dealer was) and a recipe box with "102" cards (QV-fairly recent). A quick flip through shows mostly used material. There are sorting lots of low denomination Small Queens, a couple dozen Map stamps, a couple of Bluenoses and a healthy grouping of back of the book (dues, airmail, special delivery, precancels etc). Expect duplication and mixed condition in places. As always, there is cancel potential and potential "finds" for the patient collector. One cubic foot of fun! Estimate = $160.00 $85.00
177 Canada - Uncut Press Sheets PART 1. A dozen uncut press sheets 1996-2011, all still in original Post Office tube. A nice "larger" lot of these limited-edition Post-Office issues.

178 Canada - Uncut Press Sheets PART 2. A bakers-dozen (13) uncut press sheets 2013-2021, all still in original Post Office tube.

A nice chance to acquire a large group of these at once.

179 Canada Cancels - Small box filled with several hundred on / off paper Canadian stamps, primarily GeoVI to QEII, all selected for postmark interest either loose or on "102" card. Noted lots of small towns (especially Western Canada), with strength in CDS cancel, but also a good array of split ring and "other" types. A great lot for the postmark hound, with several hours of sorting ahead. Estimate = $120.00 $22.00
180 Canada Covers - Admiral Era Postal History Selection. An interesting array of 27 covers and postcards, each featuring a GeoV "Admiral" issue franking. We noted RPO's (railway cancels), coil frankings, stationery, BC postmarks (Raft River, Black Pool, Blue River and Chase), mourning, advertising, War Tax, military, circular, foreign destination, registered, flights, stamp dealer mail and special delivery. Of particular note is a 30c Admiral franking carried on the 1922 Halifax NS to St Johns NFLD first flight (with Roessler cachet). An interesting group. Estimate = $160.00 $110.00
181 Canada Covers - British Columbia / Admiral Postal History. Hoard of Victoria BC tax notices covers from late WWI to the early 1920’s, all Admiral franked and stamped "Return to Sender" with a pointing hand rubber stamp (no contents). While most are Victoria, we did note a few from other communities. Occasionally there are other postal markings from being returned mail, making for a great study of returned mail postmarks. Overall condition is quite decent, with 800 covers in total. We have also included a group of 150 Vancouver commercial covers with meter impression, most 1950’s-1960’s, duplicated, but some nice business corner cards. Estimate = $250.00 $55.00
182 Canada Covers - British Columbia Postal History. Bayard BC 1905 split ring postmark on Edward VII franked postcard (Cranbrook, Warwick Patriotic) sent to Sweden.

Located 8 miles east of Cranbook, serving the community and employees of the Bayard Saw Mill. Rated as an "E" in Topping / Robinson and "E1" (1-3 copies known) in Coopers monograph. A scarce BC town, worthy of any collection. Estimate = $250.00 $32.00
183 Canada Covers - British Columbia Postal History. Seldom seen offering of Victoria BC 1889-1970 local business advertising / corner cards.

185 Canada Covers - British Columbia Postal History. Small bin filled with 746 covers, from the QEII period (with a few older). A cancel collector's accumulation, with focus on the more modern (1990's - 2000's) RC "Retail Centre" boxed postmarks, which have been an under-appreciated facet of postal history as they represent a huge variety of postmark types, little of which has been researched. We also noted that a good number of these modern covers were sent registered, so perhaps some interest here for the modern "rate" collector. Estimate = $120.00 $10.00
186 Canada Covers - British Columbia Postal History. Vancouver BC advertising cover lot of 88 different, mostly 1920’s with terrific corner cards or notable return addresses, each with the stamp tied by a slogan cancel. Includes companies such as "Jones Tent and Awning", "Gailners", Vi-Tone and "The Cave". There are a number with Chinese language return addresses which have been very popular for those collectors of "diaspora" material. Noted themes like Vancouver’s 60th Jubilee, bicycles, rice, flour, engines, car service, soda etc. A fascinating look at Vancouver’s commercial past. Perfect to break-up for retail or to build onto this exhibit. Condition is generally very good, coming from a meticulous collector. A difficult to duplicate offering. Estimate = $200.00 $170.00
187 Canada Covers - Calgary Stampede and Exhibition 1947-1961 group of 24 illustrated cachet / special exhibition cancel covers. A nice array of covers from the late GeoVI to early QEII period, with some duplication in years, but often selected for variety in date. An always popular area of collecting as these covers were created by both collectors and attendees as a souvenir of "The Greatest Show on Earth". Estimate = $120.00 $10.00
188 Canada Covers - First Day Cover Hoard 1971-2008. Bankers Box filled with a total of 1830 first day covers, all with Canada Post issued cachets. While duplicated at time, this group offers a large selection of singles, se-tenant, blocks, plate blocks and sets. While these covers sold at a premium over face-value at time of purchase, we have only counted the total face value. Total face value = $894.66 $13.00
189 Canada Covers - First Day Covers. Small shoebox, filled with 244 Canada Post issue first day covers from the mid-1990's up to about 2012. A slightly duplicated group, but with strength in the more "modern" material including at least couple dozen souvenir sheets (including a good showing from the "P" stamp period). We also noted a good variety of both singles and sets and even some plate blocks (which are less common to see in the modern material). While these covers sold for a premium over the face value originally, we have only counted the total face value. Total face value = $484.60 $11.00
190 Canada Covers - Old-time Postal Stationery hoard (originally housed in a home-made plywood box before we removed them) with about 500 pieces of mint and used postal stationery, from the 1870’s until about 1985 (being mostly covers / postcards). We noted over 50 QV postal cards with printed notices for banks, 3 QEII pre-cancelled post cards with TB notices, a bundle of 2c KEVII envelopes used over a decade (perfect to learn how to differentiate the die types), a 1c KGVI wrapper perforated 4-hole OHMS and some more modern used envelopes with added cachets for stamp shows / "Conestoga Press". Usual amount of small faults, but generally a clean lot with moderate to heavy duplication. Estimate = $150.00 $60.00
191 Canada Covers - Ontario Postal History. Small plastic tub FILLED with a total of 1031 covers or postcards, all featuring Ontario postmarks including CDS, split ring, POCON, RC (retail centre) and machines. Accumulated by a collector over a number of years that was attempting to acquire postmarks from every Post Office across the country. Primarily QEII era, with strength in the 1960's to 1980's material including some obscure looking material from smaller Post Offices. A great lot for the postmark hound. Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
192 Canada Covers - Postal Stationery Accumulation. A small box containing a collector's "set aside for later" group of unused postal stationery including both envelopes (primarily), aerogrammes and postcards. Includes a few Post Office sealed packs from the 45c / 46c era and some "Automotive Forum" printed stationery. Lots of variety here to keep what you need and use the remainder to trade or use for mailing. These stationery lots have been popular with those who look to save on their mailing cost by uprating (with stamps) these and using them to mail today. Conservatively valued by the total usable postage value, with a clear upside if valued by an older Unitrade or current Webb catalogue. Total face value = $226.41 $19.00
193 Canada Covers - QEII official "G" Government OVPT franking covers, an old-time hoard. A fascinating box containing several hundred covers and "cut down" large pieces, all bearing QEII era "G" official frankings with strength in the Karsh and Wilding series. It does not look like this box has been opened in decades, with covers still bundled together likely stowed away sometime in the 1960's. Unchecked and un-researched. A great opportunity to acquire such a large holding. Estimate = $150.00 $110.00
194 Canada Covers - Small box containing over 300 covers and postcards, primarily Edward VII to QEII with strength in the GeoV material. Noted town cancels, RPO's, postal stationery, picture postcards, meters and first flight covers (FFC) to name a few. A good sort needed but this should prove rewarding for the Canadian postal historian. Estimate = $120.00 $46.00
195 Canada Covers / Literature - Proof Strikes of Canada. Group of 28 different soft-bound volumes (of the 38 volume set) of the "Proof Strikes of Canada" reference books Edited by J.

210 China - Accumulation in 6 albums, binders / stockbooks. Includes mounted collections, dealer stock and unorganized duplicate pages. Most are pre-1949 Republic issues, but there is a bit of early PRC and some deeper ROC to be found. This is another picker’s delight, with most of the issues being only superficially organized. Thousands of mint and used stamps, with hours of discovery for the successful bidder. Estimate = $300.00 $85.00
211 China - Over FOUR solid inches (10cm for you younger collectors) of loose album and stock pages, from over 20 different sources with a buffet of thousands of mint and used stamps, mostly from the first half of the 20th century but trickling into the early PRC and Taiwan issues. This is a sorter and researcher’s paradise. Much of this material has not been touched since the early 1980’s, well before increased interest from North American collectors, so who knows what is here. There is room to differentiate printings, overprints, cancels. To sweeten the pot, there is also a "personal pizza" sized box stuffed with envelopes, dealer cards and even an old approval book with even more material of a similar vintage. Estimate = $500.00 $44.00
212 China - Overwhelming accumulation of overprints in a clutch of loose album pages, loose in envelopes and glassines. Lots of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, airmail and postage due issues throughout which included both mint and used from many different sources. At least a couple of thousand stamps (not including non-overprinted issues or those from other areas that are on adjoining pages). Completely unchecked for printings, postmarks or errors. Unpicked, so we are confident that an expert (or someone wanting to become an expert), will thoroughly enjoy this lot. Estimate = $300.00 $34.00
213 China - The last from the Chinese "find", an array of album pages, stockpages and envelopes of miscellaneous material. Includes lots of Republic issues, then moving into Taiwan and PRC issues. As unpicked as the other lots. We have presumed that the earlier PRC material is mostly reprints but check them out for yourself. From many different sources. Most of this material hasn’t been touched in 40+ years. A good opportunity here for the patient collector as large untouched lots of this type of material (as with the other lots) is seldom offered. Estimate = $250.00 $34.00
214 China - PRC #1002/1208. All fresh and mint Never Hinged 1969 to 1975 period better values from incomplete sets or stand-alone singles.

Except for the odd irregular perf, the stamps are all in pristine and "new issue quality" top shape. 2024 Scott US$257.50 = $347.63 $10.00
221 China - PRC - Bundle of album pages, stockpages, dealer cards and two presentation albums (2000 year set and 30th anniversary of the annexation of Tibet). Most is from the Liberation era up to the 1960’s. We have presumed that much of the material from this period is reprint, but given the era and sources, some original material is likely to be found. We noted about 25 glassines with the 1963 Panda set, CTO (catalogue value over $300.00 alone). Be open to positive surprises in this lot, as they are bound to be there! Estimate = $350.00 $10.00
222 Falkland Islands #121/161. All mint Hinged 1953 to 1966 period collection of 41 different stamps, all high quality complete sets. The lot includes the popular long "Bird" topical set of 12 plus an additional 1d value with sideways watermark. 2024 Scott US$293.50 = $396.23 $11.00

In October 1941, the French infantry regiment (638th), 2,452 men strong, crossed the frontier of the Soviet Union as part of the foreign contingent of the German invasion force. Needless to say, not many returned. An evocative piece of WWII ephemera. Light gum bend mentioned for the record, but does not detract from this key-item. Listed in Michel catalogue as Private Ausgaben 1939/1945 Frankreich Block I. Only 30,000 sheets printed Michel cat 500 euros= $728.25 $75.00

We even noted a few cinderellas. Estimate = $140.00 $24.00
227 France - Collection: Volume 1. Extensive France collection in a green Scott Specialized album (volume 1). The collection begins with Scott #3, running from 1849 to 1996 and is mostly used for the Classic period to 1899, then a mix of mounted mint and used from 1900 to 1960, then mostly mounted mint H/NH (housed in black mounts from 1970) to 1996. The collection is well represented throughout all periods with a high degree completion. Includes booklet panes and souvenir sheets. There are 2,407 stamps in total according to the consignor.

230 France and French Colonies Cartonload - Wine box packed with albums, stock sheets and loose pages, containing a mixed selection of many hundreds of French Colonies and France proper. A quick inspection revealed: a fat Scott binder containing a wide range of colonial material; worthwhile selections of Gabon, Dahomey, Reunion and Chad organized on stock sheets (former auction lots); Loose album pages including France Back of the Book material; and finally remaindered France collection in a Minuteman binder. A useful mix with a decent total catalogue value. Estimate = $200.00 $44.00

A great lot! Estimate = $200.00 $36.00
235 French Offices in China - Overprints on French "Indo-Chine" issues. Includes Tchongking (Chungking) mint issues #11,14,15 (catalogue US$192.50) plus another six issues without Chinese characters, which Scott says "were not officially authorized". The pair of stamps from Mongtseu (Mengtsz) #10,12 are also mint, hinged (catalogue US$225.00) and finishes with Packhoi #13 (catalogues US$47.50). Very uncommon material, with great appeal for French colonial, China and even Vietnam collectors. Estimate = $200.00 $26.00
236 French Southern and Antarctic Territories #16-19, 20, 22, C4, C16a. VF mint NH selection of 1960 to 1968 period issues, including both regular and airmail stamps. All complete sets. Wonderfully engraved topicals from our southernmost continent! 2024 Scott UD$220.00 = $297.00 $19.00
237 German Democratic Republic, Germany, Saar - Trio of collections, arranged on older 18-ring Lindner pages (two within matching binders) with a good range of mint and used issues up to about 1960. We noted the best material is from DDR, with Mao set used, all four Marx souvenir sheets mint (hinged), 1953 portrait issue and some matching BOB including the Stamp Day 1950 souvenir sheet (never hinged). The Deutschland is two sets of pages in one binder, covering 1923-1945, with good coverage but generally missing the more expensive stamps and no souvenir sheets. The Saar issues are on pages (no binder) with an inter-war and post-war sections. Again, reasonable coverage, but not a lot of better items. The true value here is in the DDR. Estimate = $200.00 $32.00
238 Germany #29/1192. Massive duplicated "doubles" stock of 1870's to 1980's off-paper stamps, neatly sorted by catalogue number into envelopes within three shoeboxes. Many thousands of stamps in total, with strength in the definitive issues (including postmark interest), especially the 3rd Reich Wartime and Post-WWII issues. A very clean offering, with some surprises likely to be found throughout. Estimate = $160.00 $22.00
239 Germany - An explosion of 1980s "Muster" overprints on 446 German stamps (including semi-postals) and four souvenir sheets, plus an additional 31 overprints on Berlin issues. The condition appears to be very fine mint, never hinged, as released by the German post office as specimens. The disorganization makes it difficult to determine how much duplication there is, but it appears to be moderate, perfect for helping you recoup your purchase price. Housed in an expensive brown leatherette KABE 32-page black acetate strip stockbook. Estimate = $400.00 $10.00
240 Germany - Computer generated album covering up to 2012, with a couple thousand mostly used stamps. We note that this looks very complete post-WWII (but no "back of the book"). There are pages for States (noted many Bavarian issues) and "Kolonies" with each page being individually housed in page protectors. What adds intrigue to this already solid collection is that many of the earlier pages from earlier issues have scatterings of unmounted material that has been slid into the page protector, sometimes dozens of stamps at a time. Not sure if these were duplicates, or better condition/nice cancels that had been set aside, but it definitely gives the feeling of hidden possibilities. The lot also includes a second binder with 20 manilla stockpages with similar, duplicate material from the same time period. Estimate = $220.00 $55.00
241 Germany - Der hodgen-podgen with a bit of Germany, then lots of Bavaria and DDR. The Germany includes 8 larger sized custom album pages with attractive semi-postal issues (1936-1941), some larger inflation-era multiples, an old international reply coupon and some 1970’s material in 102 cards. The Bavaria includes a couple of mounted collections (owner’s catalogue value over $500.00) with some nice cancels noted. The East German material includes a couple of sets of album pages and a few auction lots that between them, cover much of what was issued, with a few later souvenir sheets noted. Good potential throughout. Estimate = $160.00 $10.00
242 Germany Literature - Specialized offering of 15 different volumes, all relating to Germany and States postal history and cancellation information. Pertaining to a range of topics from early stampless material to the beginning of the 20th century. While all of these books are in German, many can still be easily navigated by the anglophone, such as "Deutsche Postorte 1490-1920" which translates to "German Postal Locations" that list alphabetically the Post Offices of Germany 1490-1920 with location. This grouping would easily represent many hundred of dollars in original cost. Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
243 Germany Postal History - Shoebox containing an old-time accumulation of post-WWII postal history primarily 1946-1957, plus a group of earlier Bavaria postal stationery postcards. Several hundred items in total, with a nice array of usages put aside by a specialist in German postal history. The Bavaria stationery cards are a mix of both mint and used, with a good showing of the "Germania" time period (and earlier). Estimate = $150.00 $10.00
244 Germany Postal History - Wurttemberg Postal History / Postal Stationery Holding. A very interesting collector's accumulation of roughly 250 covers, postcards and wrappers with strength in the postal stationery (both used and unused). These were put together over many years by a German specialist and seem to have a particular focus on the postmarks of the 1880's. An attractive and clean offering. Estimate = $200.00 $28.00
245 Germany, DDR and States - Interesting accumulation including a stockbook of the 2pf postal tax stamp of 1948-50, with over 1000 copies and 25 covers (a motherlode for the specialist). Then there are a dozen inflation era complete mint sheets, a few older albums (most without binders), stamps back to the various States (with the usual caveats about the ever-mixed condition of this material) and some earlier DDR. There are over 100 black stockcards with individual GDR/DDR sets (1970’s-80s), with Scott notations and pricing on the back (probably $300.00 catalogue value here alone). The lot concludes with some stocksheets with various souvenir sheets and modern presentation cards. Estimate = $170.00 $10.00
246 Gibraltar #9/218, J1-J3, MR1. All mint Hinged 1886 to 1968 period collection of over 140 different stamps, including numerous high quality complete sets. All neatly mounted on the original Stanley Gibbons printed album pages and on one Hagner stock sheet. The collection becomes comprehensive in the later GeoVI and QEII period but the earlier section, while a bit thinner, still contains useful and better singles. 2022 Scott US$1,007.85 = $1,360.60 $26.00
247 Great Britain #1. Fine to Very Fine used example of the 1840 issue Penny Black, the world's first stamp. Four clear margins and a nice strike of the Maltese Cross cancel. Unchecked for plate number. 2023 Scott Classic US$375.00 = $506.25 $110.00
248 Great Britain #1. Penny Black Study Group #1. A grouping of 5 un-plated Penny Blacks, including a 3-margin copy and a couple of 2+ margin copies, most of which have red Maltese Cross postmarks. Expect the usual small faults. A great lot for plate study or sheet reconstruction. 2023 Scott US$1875.00 = $2,431.25 $13.00
249 Great Britain #1. Penny Black Study Group #2. A second un-plated selection of 5 Penny Blacks, including a copy with a tight 4-margin and then 3x 3-margins, most of which have Maltese Cross postmarks. Expect the usual small faults in the lot. A nice chance to acquire a group, perfect for study of plates or sheet reconstruction. 2023 Scott US$1875.00 = $2,431.25 $22.00
250 Great Britain #1a. The Scott Classic and Stanley Gibbons listed intense black shade of the 1840 issue Penny Black, VF appearing but faulty (thinned) used with a cancel so light it appears to be mint at first glance. Full to huge margins on all sides. Take a good look at the scan as the stamp is unchecked for plate number. 2023 Scott Classic US$600.00 = $810.00 $26.00
251 Great Britain #1a. The Scott Classic and Stanley Gibbons listed intense black shade of the 1840 issue Penny Black, VF used with a light red Maltese Cross cancel. Take a good look at the scan as the stamp is unchecked for plate number. 2023 Scott Classic US$600.00 = $810.00 $130.00
252 Great Britain #3/1091. Fine mostly used collection on quadrilled pages with some notable items that includes some early Victorian material with a number of strong readable cancels. The Jubilee issue includes three values with perfins, the KEVII is covered up to the 5/-. (noted four Seahorses..one perfined) and the Elizabethan period up to 1985 which appears free of definitives. Usual mixed condition, but good appearance (with few obvious faults). A good clean offering. Owner’s total 2022 Scott US$2917.00 = $3,937.95 $20.00
253 Great Britain #26/125. There is no truth to the assertion that this was the childhood stamp collection of Edward Scissorhand..however, the previous owner felt it was more expedient to cut out pages from albums and notebooks than to remount the stamps elsewhere. The good news is that the collector had a good eye for attractive used Queen Victoria issues. There are a baker’s dozen of pages (13), with a total of 115 stamps, up to 1/- denominations. Lots of notes identifying individual stamps, printings and plates, but we have not verified any of these so take a good look at the scans to judge for yourself. Based on the listed Scott catalogue values, it doesn’t appear that this material has been handled since at least the 1980s. Great postmark potential throughout. Total lowest 2023 Scott US$2,522.00 = $3,404.70 $26.00
254 Great Britain #33, 58 (Plates). All mint (mostly no gum) selection of 1864 issue perforated "Penny Reds" (plates #171, 174, 186, 214 & 221) and a trio of ½p rose "Bantams" (valued as the most common plate). Expect the odd fault. 2023 Scott Classic US$882.50 = $1,191.38 $12.00
255 Great Britain #70. VF used wing margin strip of three of the 1877 issue 4p pale olive green, wmk 23 (Large Garter), plate 16. This light colour is close to the true shade. 2023 Scott Classic US$1,050.00 = $1,417.50 $15.00
256 Great Britain #96a. Used example of the 1883 2sh6p lilac QV large format high value on the Scott and Stanley Gibbons listed bluish paper. Partial CDS postmark. A very rare Victorian era paper variety. This stamp is new to the market as we found it in a 19th Century "old-time" collection. Short perfs at upper right noted for the record, otherwise sound. 2024 Scott US$1,750.00 = $2,362.50 $20.00
257 Great Britain #111-122, 125-138, 143-145, 147-150. Sixty-two used stamps from the late Victorian era and the subsequent Edward issues running from 1887-1911. Stamps are generally Fine to Very Fine and sound, including many colour variations. No attempt has been made to include all such varieties but the major ones are shown, all identified by the consignor. The stamps have been selected for mainly unobtrusive cancels with pleasing appearance. Consignor's 2019 Scott US$1,972.30 = $2,662.61 $11.00
258 Great Britain #127/145. A half-page of mint Edwardian issues 1/2d - 10d (1/- value isn’t counted). Very fresh appearance, with the back ranging from barely hinged to a couple that are quite heavily hinged. A few duplicates included, but also unchecked for colour shades (see the trio of 9d values). 2023 Scott US$1,338.00 = $1,806.30 $0.00
259 Great Britain #179/223. Herd of Seahorses. Group of 19 used examples, unchecked for printings but a quick glance shows at least two printings are represented. These stamps are striking with their above average quality of cancels. There are 7 copies of the 2/6, 10 of the 5/- and two non-Waterlow examples of the 10/-. Expect the odd fault, as often found on these "high-value" issues. Catalogued as the cheapest examples only. Total 2023 Scott US$1075.00 = $1,451.25 $13.00
260 Great Britain #181. Mint Hinged 10/- Seahorse from the 1919 Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co printing, complete with the tiny dot above the top centre frame. A bit of usual gum cracking and the number "200" has been written on the back in pencil but has a nice fresh appearance. 2023 Scott US$340.00 = $459.00 $13.00
261 Great Britain #267-268 First Day Cover. The 1948 KGVI and Queen Mother Silver Wedding set of two on a spectacularly attractive small format Registered cover, neatly written address, mailed from Kirriemuir, Scotland with clear CDS date "26-AP-48". Superb condition. The care with which this cover was prepared and mailed is clearly evident! Stanley Gibbons Concise catalouge value £425.00 = $720.00 $20.00
262 Great Britain #J43/54. Group of better mint (mostly never hinged), early Elizabethan postage dues. Includes J43 (x3), J44 (heavily hinged), J46, J48, J53 (x2), J54 (x2). Build your collection and recoup some of your money with the duplicates! 2023 Scott US$689.25 = $930.49 $16.00
263 Great Britain #O4/O73. Selection of sixteen lightly duplicated used and one mint Official stamps from 1882-1903. The consignor notes Parcel stamps are particularly interesting and include the 1sh value (#O36). Mainly sound with the odd fault noted. Consignor's 2019 Scott US$470.80 = $635.58 $11.00
264 Great Britain #O47. The "O.W. OFFICIAL" overprint on 5d Queen Victoria Jubilee, for use by the Office of Works in 1901. Nice light CDS cancel on a very difficult issue. 2024 Scott US$1,250.00 = $1,687.50 $16.00
265 Great Britain - A pair of Hagner brand stockpages with 122 very assorted Victorian issues up to 5/-. These appear to have been selected for their readable cancels, with approximately 90% quite easily identified at first glance. Includes many better items, with individual catalogue values up to $300.00 each (and several perfins for those who appreciate the "holy" stamps). While there are a few that are noticeably damaged, the vast majority are quite clean and attractive. Unchecked by us for printings, plates, etc. Catalogued as the cheapest possible option. Total 2023 Scott US$2058.00 = $2,778.30 $15.00
266 Great Britain - Binders, album pages, packets and presentation packs. Bankers box filled with an assortment of material including used Victorian era issues (some better values and nice readable cancels), bits from KEVII - KGVI (one old auction lot was stated to catalogue US$870.00 in 2012!) and then strong QEII with a bit of Machins and lots of used commemoratives from about 1990-2010. Also included is a bit of Channel Islands material (for the record). Thousands of stamps, a few covers.. and hours of hunting and sorting. Estimate = $150.00 $10.00
267 Great Britain - Dense bankers box containing several albums with mostly used GB collections or stocks. There is potential value everywhere, including better QV & KEVII stamps, a number of Seahorses and commemoratives into the early 21st century. Amongst the thousands of stamps, there are other "plus value" items waiting to be found, including cancels, varieties and perfins. Great to build your collection, your online stock or to make friends at an upcoming stamp club meeting! Estimate = $150.00 $10.00
268 Great Britain - Five pages of complete QEII booklets, most being Machin issues. Includes three different 4/6 booklets (all numbers and values by Gibbons) L12, L19, L59p and 2 different 6/- booklets = QP28 & QP36. These 5 booklets alone catalogue £197.00! Next is a series of 46 mostly different "machine" booklets from the early 1990’s (another £150.00 value). Finally, there are seven booklets from the "two Queens" Machin issue, a couple of the early prestige booklets and (although not technically booklets) the large panes of the Christmas 1986 and 1987 issues. Overall condition is excellent, except for the Wedgewood booklet that has a cover scuff and is not counted in the catalogue value. Total 2017 Stanley Gibbons Concise £418.00 = $689.70 $22.00
269 Great Britain - Mr. Hodge meet Ms. Podge. This bundle of Britannia includes a range of 35 Presentation packs with some going back to the early 1970’s, but most from the 1990’s up to 2009 and a further 13 packs from Guernsey. Unhelpfully, the owner sometimes added used stamps to the packs (the mint still all appear to be there, with the later decimal-era face value being £92.00). Mixed in with these packs are 37 First Day Covers, including some signed (noted David Attenborough). There are a couple old auction lots on single pages, one with mint, mostly NH phosphor taggings and the other with BEE (British Empire Exhibition) to 1960’s mint, being a mostly lightly hinged selection (both pages catalogue about $200.00). For those seeking more modern commemoratives, there are 17 Vario brand pages with both sides filled with mostly circa 2000’s used GB (expect some duplication). Estimate = $150.00 $11.00
270 Great Britain - QEII Machin Stamp HOARD. An astounding accumulation of over 20,000 used QEII "Machin Head" definitive stamps (including regional issues) on/off paper, with the majority being off-paper. Sorted and semi-sorted into envelopes and small boxes, filing two small size U-haul boxes. Designed by Arnold Machin and featuring a simple sculpted profile of the Queen, these "Machin" stamps were issued between 1967-2022 and have always had a strong collector base due to the many varieties that can be found. A great lot for sorting. Estimate = $200.00 $22.00
271 Great Britain - Used Hoard on Stock Pages. Semi-organized mixed condition accumulation of 1840s to 1960s period stamps, including regular issues, Officials, postal stationery cut-squares, Revenues and more. Strength noted in early Victorian issues and GeoV Seahorses. Saw a couple of Penny Blacks, perf and imperf Two Penny Blues (including multiples), quantities of better Victorian era singles and more. While a good number of faulty stamps can be expected in a "catch-all" lot like this, there is a good chance of finding a "gem" or two here as the long-time accumulation appears to be unpicked for varieties. The total theoretical catalogue value runs into the thousands! Estimate = $325.00 $40.00
272 Great Britain - Used QEII Machin holding of 52 mostly different booklet panes 1990-2008, most with first day cancellations including some regional issues. Some were soaked from FDCs, while others may have been self-created based on differences in selvage and cancellation type. Generally the condition is good, but expect a bit of pressing needed on a couple. All arranged within a lovely 16-page acetate strip stockbook with a blue cover. This material is missing from most modern UK collections. Estimate = $150.00 $70.00
273 Great Britian / Channel Islands - Postal History group. A collector's assembly of 124 covers and postcards, neatly packed within a small box. The lot consists of Guernsey (55), Isle of Man (31) and Jersey (38). Lots of attractive stamps throughout, being mostly sets on cachet first day covers (but with odd commercial item mixed in). We even noted a WWII Jersey occupation cover, of philatelic origin (but most are). Estimate = $100.00 $0.00
274 Greenland #10-18. Complete set of the 1945 "American" issue, each with a light partial CDS cancel in the upper corner. Condition is excellent and the appearance is fresh. One of the more classic Scandinavian issues. 2023 Scott US$360.00 = $486.00 $42.00
275 Griqualand West #87c. Fine mint OG H example of the 1878 issue 1/2p grey black Seated Britannia with 2nd "G" overprint (t) in red. 2023 Scott Classic US$350.00 = $472.50 $50.00
276 Guadeloupe #2/199 plus back of the book. Mounted collection covering about 80% of the colonial period for this French Caribbean colony, including overprinted issues back to 1884. There is good representation from the overprinted era and many nice cancels noted (a couple of damaged items, including #38, are not counted). The commemorative and common design sets are mostly intact and there are semi-postals, airmails and later postage dues. Also included are a few stamps on Harris pages not counted in the total 2023 Scott US$812.75 = $1,097.20 $22.00
277 Hong Kong #5/1156. Dealer’s stock of mostly used issues sorted into glassines by Scott number, with a few album pages and some loose stamps from a separate holding. In total, there is a bit of QV (including a couple of Treaty Port cancels), a couple of QV private overprints or "firm chops" (including on #52, catalogues $140.00) and a smattering of KEVII and KGV. There is a goodly bunch of 1941 Centenary issues, including 40 used copies of the dollar denomination (#173 - cat $9.25 each, most in pairs or strips of three - if only those covers or pieces had survived!). The material is stronger in definitives than commemoratives and goes up to just past the handover to China. A couple of thousand stamps, perfect to fill in your collection or to break into smaller lots. Estimate = $150.00 $10.00
278 Hong Kong #151/238. All mint Hinged 1937 to 1968 period collection of 67 different stamps, all high quality complete definitive and commemorative sets. The collection includes four different GeoVI period sets and QEII period seems to be complete from 1952 up to 1968. 2024 Scott US$705.95 = $953.03 $65.00
279 Hong Kong #559a. Mint NH souvenir sheets issued for the Royal Visit of the Charles and Diana to Hong Kong in 1989. Pristine lot of 100 mint never hinged copies, still in the original post office packaging. 2023 Scott US$1650.00 = $2,227.50 $22.00
280 Hong Kong #791a. Opening of Lantau Link bridge souvenir sheet with perf 13.5 in a brick of 500 mint, never -hinged examples, still packed as they came from the Post Office. Issued in 1997 in the lead-up to the handover back to China, these stamps were valid for postage for only a couple of months after issue. The consignor originally paid HK$2500.00 ($415.00 CDN) as a new issue. 2023 Scott US$1125.00 = $1,518.75 $22.00
281 Hong Kong #792. Mint NH "Classics No.10" souvenir sheet depicting notable definitives stamps of the previous 150 years. The last issue before Hong Kong reverted to Chinese administration in 1997. Housed in a box that originally contained 500 souvenir sheets, but the seal has been broken and we suspect that a few have been removed, so we are going to conservatively estimate this lot based on 450 souvenir sheets (there are definitely more than that). The original cost would have been about $380.00 CDN. 2023 Scott US$787.50 = $1,063.73 $22.00
282 Hong Kong - 1980’s sheet lot, in complete sets with each issue having either one or two complete mint never hinged sheets (with gutter pairs). Includes the Port issue, historic building, Charles and Diana Royal Visit and Hong Kong’s only semi-postal issue. Scott catalogue numbers #380-383 (x50), 439-442 (x100), 556-559 (x100) and B1-B4 (x100), with one sheet of B1 with toning on back, so not counted in the catalogue value. Great for display or to break up for sale. Also included is a set of sheetlets from the first Hong Kong issue by China (also not included in the total catalogue value). 2023 Scott US$3402.50 = $4,593.38 $10.00
283 Hungary #486, B108, B109, B130, B202, B203, C67, C157. Group of 8 VF used souvenir sheets from the 1934-1954 period. Includes the 1934 sheet (admission) to the 2nd Hungarian Philatelic Exhibition, 1939 Protestant Day (both perforate and imperforate), 1940 "Artists" semi-postal, 1947 Stamp Day, 1948 "Globe and Carrier Pigeon", 1949 "Postman" airmail and 1954 Stamp Day "Jokai". A clean group of souvenir sheets, with only one small bend noted (B203). 2023 Scott US$200.00 = $270.00 $22.00
284 Hungary #B198A-B198D, CB1-CB1C. Matching mint Never Hinged duo of the 1947 Franklin Delano Roosevelt semi-postal / airmail semi-postal souvenir sheets. Couple minor gum bends as are almost always found on these issues, but well above average. 2023 Scott US$250.00 = $337.50 $26.00
285 Iran #1253/2549. A dozen black stockpages that start with 1963-1964 issues, including #1253/1313 and 1971 with #1581/1636 (these all have the usual light gum-side tanning, endemic to these issues). The group then shifts to 600 different 1980’s-1992 issues, noting #2688, 2696, 2730, 2732, 2772, 2788-2789 and 2421-2436. All appear to be very fine, mint, never hinged but the occasional minor gum fault may exist. Modern Persian material is not often seen. Estimate = $150.00 $30.00
286 Italy #21/2499. A surprisingly good binder of club approvals, with pages being added up to 2002. Based on the observation that the catalogue values of the early material has gone up by 2-5 times, this group was likely started in the 1980s and we noted a number of $10-$40 items. There is a second binder with manila stockpages holding a confused selection of material, but includes lots of "back of the book" issues. There is a bit of value in some 1930’s commemoratives and mint end-of-the-war "GNR" overprints. A couple thousand stamps, mostly used. While this is definitely disorganized and duplicated, expect to make a few unexpected "finds". Estimate = $150.00 $24.00
287 Italy - Trieste #1/205 plus Back of the Book. Six-page accumulation of mint Italian stamps, overprinted AMG-FTT for the American Military government in Free Trieste at the end of the second world war. A good range of issues, many are never hinged, or lightly hinged and includes a bit of duplication. Includes the long sets of 1947 & 1948 and the 1951 "stamp on stamp" issue, plus some quality back of the book, including airmails and postage dues (amongst others). The last batch from this collection that we have been listing over the past few months. 2023 Scott US$1373.80 = $1,845.63 $10.00
288 Italy and Colonies - Accumulation from several sources, includes a couple dozen manila stockpages with a few hundred mostly used pre-1940 issues and some back of the book (the Roman states issues are mostly reprints). This is followed by a couple of un-touched auction lots including more and often later stamps on stockcards including a set of B17-B19 (the 1923 Black Shirt issue). There is then a mounted collection with some nice Eritrea & Somalia issues and 5 different used Italian issues overprinted for Zara/Zadar in 1943 (catalogue over $200.00 in Michel, but offered "as-is"). Estimate = $150.00 $11.00
289 Jamaica #16/265, MR1/MR11, O1-O3 Plus Fiscals. Lightly duplicated mixed mint Hinged and used 1883 to 1967 period collection of 412 stamps and souvenir sheets. The older material ends to be the used and duplicated portion of the lot while the more recent QEII stamps tend to be all different and in complete sets. 2024 Scott US$813.25 = $1,097.89 $10.00
290 Japan #58/2614. Red box of 102 cards, sorted into mint (30%), used (60%) and modern prefecture issues (10%). The used includes some striking 19th century SON cancels. The mint (mostly hinged) material includes some good values up to the 1950’s. Each stamp or set is properly identified with both Scott number and in many cases, the catalogue value. Noted many $3-$10 items throughout, with only light duplication. Great collection or stock builder. Estimate = $150.00 $10.00
291 Japan - Multiple part 20th century accumulation including a number of souvenir sheets, with a couple National Parks (1938, 1941) and 3 from 1948 (all 5 with usual faults, bends etc), plus some more recent. This is followed by a dozen more recent sheetlets of 20 (about equivalent C$100.00 face value). Then there is a 16-page Lighthouse stockbook, with mostly mint stamps from the 1980s (give or take) and a 1989 UPU conference delegation gift in a nice album with case. Finally, there are a couple album pages / stockpages and a handful of loose material with some items of promise. An explorer’s delight. Estimate = $180.00 $10.00
292 Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania #46/180. Fine to Very Fine mint Hinged (mostly Very Fine and Lightly Hinged) and used collection of 125 different 1935 to 1967 period issues, almost all complete sets. Neatly laid out, identified and valued on four Hagner brand stock sheets. All the QEII period material is mint, the earlier GeoV and GeoVI material is mixed mint and used. Great topical subject matter. 2024 Scott US$1,032.85 = $1,394.35 $55.00
293 Korea - Democratic People’s Republic (North) #608g. Fabulous mint never-hinged souvenir sheet issued in 1966 for the 20th anniversary of the Korean Worker’s Party, depicting typical Communist themes such as Marx/Lenin, red flags with yellow emblems etc. Sheet was cut a bit off-kilter (as often seen), but it is square. A bit of printing offset visible at the top, does not diminish this scarce piece. 2023 Scott US$600.00 = $810.00 $0.00
294 Kuwait #155/260. All fresh and Fine to Very Fine mint Hinged (mostly Very Fine and Lightly Hinged) collection of 110 different 1961 to 1964 period issues, all complete sets. Neatly laid out, identified and valued on four Hagner brand stock sheets. Great topical subject matter. 2024 Scott US$253.60 = $342.36 $22.00
295 Latin America - Hoard from a collector who bought more than he could process. This box is a range of old album pages, dealer stockcards, auction lots and some relatively recent new issues. All of which were purchased and then never processed, so found as received (some from decades ago). A wide range of countries, but with no particular concentration. In alphabetical order, we noted Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico (include a few complete sheets), Nicaragua, El Salvador and Venezuela. Collectors are finally appreciating the complexity and scarcity of this long-overlooked part of the world. Estimate = $200.00 $26.00
296 Leeward Islands #100/147. Complete run of 1937 to 1954 GeoVI and QEII sets, all fresh, VF mint and Very Lightly Hinged. This lot represents the final issues of this West Indies federation (abolished in 1956). 2024 Scott US$238.35 = $321.77 $28.00
297 Macao #365/704. Mint Sheet / Multiples Hoard. Enough complete sheets and large blocks to wallpaper a house, to entice an artist or to create a renaissance movement of collecting multiples. Includes #365 (100 copies), 372 (180), 373 (47), 383 (100 sheets!), 406 (138), 435 (100), 704 (100). All are mint and appear to be in excellent never hinged condition, having been handled little since they were new issues. Total 2023 Scott US$6332.90 = $8,549.42 $10.00
298 Malaya States and Straits Settlements - Eclectic mix on stockcards and album pages. We noted the best of the group is a Tregganu sextet of Japanese occupation (catalogue $198.50), Selangor Royal Wedding postally used and a nice selection of QV-KGV mint and used. There is also a range of "States" issues, with better singles. A bit of duplication and expect some odd faults (maybe even the occasional revenue cancel), but overall this is an unpicked lot accumulated by a collector from several sources. Estimate = $140.00 $75.00
299 Malta #8/396, J11/J25a, MR1-MR2. Mint and used 1885 to 1968 period collection, all mounted on Stanley Gibbons printed album pages.

Many booklets of this time have the stamps cancelled, but not this version. A bit of minor wear and normal aging from the paper’s acidity. Still a scarce presentation booklet and a great addition to any Chinese or Japanese collection. Includes a 72-page publication produced by the International Society for Japanese Philately (Monograph 9, April 1981), with maps, lists of post offices and other reference material.

Comprising of mostly air letters (aerogrammes) and registered envelopes, with the postal cards and envelopes sold in previous auctions. Includes mint, used (both postally and CTO) with up to about 10 of a type. We think the numbering system of the envelopes matches his plan to sell them online. A fairly thorough look indicates that the quantities match the notes on the outside. We don’t have a copy of this catalogue to verify identification or pricing. Flack’s total Wateren catalogue value (year unknown) US$2863.00 = $3865.05 CDN (but un-verified). Estimate = $250.00 $10.00

Perfs are in good shape, strong "Star" watermark and a nice "C" in duplex killer (Christchurch) that is clear of Queen Victoria’s face. The reverse side of the stamp is in equally above-average condition, but a previous owner identified the stamp in ink as "20d", a number that doesn’t exist in Scott or Stanley Gibbons, with an equally obsolete catalogue value. A minor blemish on an otherwise beautiful stamp. 2023 Scott US$1850.00 = $2,497.50 $90.00
306 New Zealand #122-125. Christchurch Exhibition of 1906, complete mint set of four (in far better than normally seen condition).

The 1/2d is hinged, but the other three denominations are never hinged, with the 3d having what might be a natural gum "twinge" mentioned for the record.

A truly attractive and very collectible lot. Owner's 2023 Scott US$992.00 = $1,339.20 $30.00

Estimate = $150.00 $22.00
356 USA Covers - Specialized collection of the 1934 National Parks issue First Day Covers / commemorative covers (60 covers in total). An always popular series with collectors for the large variety of material to be found in both the stamps and FDC's. These stamps were issued in the prime "cachet" period for first day cover collectors as there was a large number of cachet makers offering their illustrated covers to the growing FDC market. Included with the lot is Volume VII of the 1997 Mellone's "Photo Encyclopedia of Cacheted First Day Covers - 1934-1935" which illustrated and prices the different cachets of the period. Estimate = $120.00 $10.00

Comprehensive run of all the 1937 to 1968 GeoVI and QEII complete sets, all fresh, VF mint and Very Lightly Hinged. 113 stamps in total, all laid out, catalogued and priced on three Hagner stock sheets Loads of great pictorials, omnibus sets, provisional surcharges and more! 2024 Scott US$362.65 = $489.58 $40.00
358 West New Guinea - UNTEA Overprints #1a-19a, 1b/9b and 1c, 5c. VF mint NH group of the Second, Third and Fourth Printings of the 1962 UNTEA overprints on the stamps of Netherlands New Guinea, consisting of the complete second printing (Haarlem), nearly complete third (West New Guinea) printing and complete fourth (West New Guinea) printing. The second printing can be distinguished by the top of the "N" being slightly higher than the "U" and the concave base of the "T". The third printing measures 14mm wide (missing only #7b, the 15c value to be complete) and the fourth printing measures 19mm wide (only two values with this overprint, #1c and #5c, the 1c and 10c values) All very short-lived provisionals, produced by the United Nations Temporary Executive Authority during the transition from Dutch to Indonesian administration. Increasingly elusive provisional issues, all properly identified for the various printings. 2021 Scott US Specialized US$345.60 = $466.56 $0.00
359 Worldwide - "A-G" countries in four large black binders, with stamps mounted on computer generated album pages and each page contained within a plastic page protector. Wide range of countries, the strength is generally in issues from the 1960’s-80’s. Countries with at least a couple hundred stamps each include Afghanistan, Ajman, Albania, Angola, Burkina Faso, Burundi, French Cameroon, Dubai, Ethiopia and Guinea, but there are a couple of dozen other countries represented to a lesser extent. Condition is generally pretty good throughout. Lots of topical interest. Over 3500 stamps in total. Estimate = $150.00 $13.00
360 Worldwide - A collector’s accumulation of clean-up, resulting in a box of worldwide albums, stockbooks, loose pages and a box of cards / glassines / loose stamps, all of which fill a U-Haul box. There are several albums or stockbooks, most of which are pre-1965 worldwide, often with 2 or 3 seemingly unrelated countries on a single page. Although there is no particular strength, there is interesting material throughout including a couple of nice 32-page UniSafe brand stockbooks. You need something fun that won’t break the bank? This lot may be for you. Estimate = $130.00 $32.00
361 Worldwide - Airplane topicals. A three-part olde-time holding, starting with a worldwide dealer’s stock of approximately 350 glassine envelopes or "102" cards, mostly mint sets (didn’t see anything after 1990), with some duplication (many were priced at $3-$5 per glassine, with a few better noted). Next is a 24-page Lighthouse brand stockbook that has seen better days, but it holds about 500 mint, used and CTO stamps. Finally, there are 19 manila stockpages that include some more colourful material, including souvenir sheets. Overall condition looks good. A good lot to take a "flyer" on. Estimate = $180.00 $22.00
362 Worldwide - Assortment of old albums, album pages and loose stamps filling a U-Haul box. Just a bit from "here" (single country collections) and "there" (worldwide collections and part collections). We only took a cursory glance at this, with most of the material being used and from the 1900-1980 period. There are a dozen albums plus little notebooks and a good couple of inches of loose material that ensure you are truly getting a boxful. The estimate is only 12 dollars per book! Estimate = $140.00 $22.00
363 Worldwide - Balance of a consignment, oozing with charm and potential. Includes Scott International 1940-1949 and 1959-60 in nice binders (and lots of stamps), a couple of binders with US & UN material.

The box concludes with two red boxes, with over 1000 "102" cards and envelopes with notable Greece, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Belgium, Spain and Yugoslavia. Estimate = $130.00 $24.00
364 Worldwide - Bankers box filled with Worldwide on-paper sorted into SIX small boxes, including more recent material (including Canadian souvenir sheets). The smaller boxes can best be categorized as...1) Australia 1990's / 2000's including a nice showing of commemorative issues and higher "international value" stamps. 2) Worldwide mix, one close-cut paper from across the globe. 3) Labelled "WW clippings on paper" primarily being cut-outs from mail received by the consignor over the last 20+ years (including many "P" stamps and a smattering of Canadian souvenir sheets). 4) Great Britain 1980's to 2000's commemoratives on close-cut paper (almost 2KG worth). 5&6) Worldwide on close-cut paper (over 3KG), looks to be from the 1980's to 2000's (and some more recent). Thousands of stamps here, in need of a good sort and soak. Total weight approximately 14 Kilograms. Estimate = $150.00 $24.00
365 Worldwide - Bankers box jammed with thousands of stamps, with a good variety of both on and off paper. We immediately noticed Canadian and American material, but there is something from almost everywhere in here. A true "loose" mix, with only the occasional glassine, packet or baggie noticed. Each handful comes up with stamps from several other countries, perfect for a sorting circle at your next club meeting (after you have had taken a cut through it for your own collection). Estimate = $120.00 $12.00
366 Worldwide - Bankers box of loose "on and off" paper, including Canada and US, but also a bit of something from almost everywhere. There is the occasional glassine, packet or baggie throughout, but this is a true cornucopia of philatelic goodness (just in time for Christmas). The loose bits and pieces from a consignment. Dump it on the dining room table and enjoy the reaction! Estimate = $120.00 $12.00
367 Worldwide - Box lot accumulation of 14 distinctly different albums or stockbooks, plus loose pages and loose stamps. Includes a couple of single country albums, but most is a mish-mash of miscellaneous material (almost all 20th century), from most corners of the world. Undoubtedly coming from a wide range of sources, this represents the remnants of an estate. There are thousands of stamps here, most of which has not been looked at for 40-plus years. Estimate is conservative at only $10.00 an album, ignoring all the loose material. Chase the winter blues away! Estimate = $140.00 $32.00
368 Worldwide - Box of philatelic fun, including a bundle of cardboard stockbooks with many single country accumulations (mostly post-1950), supplemented with a worldwide album and then almost every bit of remaining space has been filled with folders, folios, stockcards, loose album pages and loose stamps (including old auction lots purchased and forgotten). This lot is the leftover part of an estate, with thousands of stamps, mostly used, from a diverse range of countries. Perfect to sort out over the long winter nights. Estimate = $150.00 $30.00
369 Worldwide - Cinderella Stamp Hoard. Envelope box packed with Cinderellas, labels and fantasy stamps. The majority of the bulk is Canadian and American TB (Christmas Seals) and Easter Seals from the 1930’s to "modern" (sometimes in full sheets), sometimes with significant duplication. Includes many that are protected on Hagner or plastic page. We did note issues from Vancouver 1936 Jubilee, 1937 Coronation, 1939 Canada Royal Visit, Muskoka TB labels 1908-1910, some German auction house or stamp show souvenir sheets, a handful of European TB sheetlets and a production from "Gilligan’s Island". Last, but not least, is a small battered stockbook that has valiantly protected a group of Scottish Local issue CTO souvenir sheets from Pabay, Stroma, St. Kilda (topical interest includes cats, dogs, fish, animals). Usual mixed condition. Estimate = $170.00 $46.00
370 Worldwide - Collector's accumulation of unprocessed material. Every collector has that pile of stuff that they have acquired that is awaiting more material before processing or sits in limbo awaiting decision(s). This box is a very diverse group of that type of material, including stockbooks, album pages, lots of envelopes and loose stamps. No particular theme, just lots of interesting material to work through. If the stamps aren’t enough for you, there is also some ephemera/collectible material too including cigarette cards. Estimate = $140.00 $55.00
371 Worldwide - Copy paper box filled with a cold winter’s worth of philatelic sorting! The box is half-filled with a good assortment of modern on-paper mix, from a range of countries, mostly separated by country. The other half of the box is made up of old-school approval packet material with interesting topical material, including some countries where approval packets were the only practical way to obtain their issues. The group is topped off with a bit of unsorted material and some loose album pages. For the soaker who likes to sort, or the sorter who likes to soak! Estimate = $120.00 $30.00
372 Worldwide - Eastern Europe. A block from the bloc, represented in 7 albums and 1 folder. A grouping of auction lots, collector duplicates and a couple of albums totaling thousands upon thousands of stamps. Strength is in Russian/Soviet Union material which accounts for about 1/3 of this lot. There is also a good stock of Hungary, a stockbook of Czechoslovakia (and noticed a bit of later Slovakia), a couple thousand Romanian stamps, and a nice accumulation from East Germany (DDR). We noted some earlier issue with cancel potential and lots of sets (with much topical interest), with some duplication. A box to keep you warm this winter. Estimate = $160.00 $24.00
373 Worldwide - European Jacques in the box. Open it up and you don’t know what might spring out! A U-haul box of unloved auction lots, partial collections, club approval sheets and envelopes of loose. In no particular order we noted Belgium, Germany, Czechoslovakia (with a page of 1934 National Anthem), Poland (with a study of forgeries), Russia, France, Denmark, Sweden, Finland (and more!). A good span of time covered here, from the early issues up to about 1992. Thousands of stamps, including the unusual. Estimate = $180.00 $24.00
374 Worldwide - File box packed with loose "on and off" paper from all eras, and seemingly from everywhere that issued stamps. Very few glassines or packaging, this is almost all pure stamps. Received from an estate, we didn’t dig too deep into this, but it appears that at least half the volume of this box is off paper stamps. A sorting bonanza! Estimate = $130.00 $24.00
375 Worldwide - Four volumes of special "Presentation Collections" or "Prepared Collections". Including...1) "Royal International Gold Collection" with a total of over 90 First Day Covers with cachets that include a gold leaf replica of the stamp, mounted in a plastic sleeve and slipped into a page explaining the issue. A wide range of countries and topical themes, but in particular we noted flight, birds, flowers, famous people etc. All in a custom 3-ring binder with slip cases. 2) card "Flowers of the World" 100 card set issued by the "Royal Horticultural Society" (actually Franklin Mint), with each card with a single stamp and a matching cachet cancelled on the first day of issue. 3) "Great Historic Aircraft of the World" collection of 63 panels, each with a single mint stamp and technical diagram of the airplane and an writeup on back. 4) "Postal Commemorative Society" issued a large album to mount Charles and Diana Royal Wedding first day covers that were individually mailed to the subscriber (regular issues, no souvenir sheets). The original retail cost would have likely been around $2000.00. Estimate = $150.00 $10.00
376 Worldwide - Home Depot "small" sized box with a variety of "I" to "P" country collections. Includes Iran, Iraq, Italy, Poland, Portugal along with with some smaller countries, such as Malagasy, Malawi, Monaco, Mozambique, Latvia, Liberia and Lichtenstein (these on computer generated album pages). An assortment of mint and used, all eras, with some duplication. Varying degrees of completeness. A grand total of 8 volumes. Estimate = $140.00 $30.00
377 Worldwide - Latin America. A big black binder of Bolivia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic and Haiti on computer generated album pages, supplemented by an equally thick bundle of stock pages, album pages, envelopes and glassines (from those previously mentioned countries and more). Partly organized in some areas, chaotic in others, with potential finds hiding among the thousands of mint and used stamps in this offering. Estimate = $140.00 $12.00
378 Worldwide - Mixed group box-lot from around the globe. Roughly half of this lot is smaller sized albums and spring backs, all of which were abandoned after 1970 but left filled with stamps, including many interesting looking items. The balance of the lot includes a Statesman album with lots of "Dunes" and then a handful of loose stamps, stockcards or album pages with single country or topical interest. As always, there is no pattern to this box, but a range of Europe caught our eye with a respectable amount of South America and a touch of Asian material (mostly Japan). Estimate = $160.00 $40.00
379 Worldwide - Potato box loaded to the gunwales with a bit of everything. Noted albums, packets, stockpages, small boxes, approvals, partial collections, glassines and cards. No distinctly strong areas (we did notice about 1000 Turkish stamps), but there are thousands of stamps from across the world. Would make a great evening’s work at your stamp club or give you hours of pleasure during these shortened days. Estimate = $160.00 $16.00
380 Worldwide - Small box of philatelic wonders. A box about the size of two shoeboxes, filled with a wide array of stamps, postcards and covers. The lot starts with SIX older stockbooks filled with a varying degree of stamps and labelled Germany, South and Central America, Europe, Canada, Eastern Europe and Africa / Middle East. These are followed by a couple dozen postcards / covers, a 1980's Postal Commerative Society USA FDC prepared collection, some miscellaneous WW stamps in envelopes / pages and about US$75.00 Mint NH face-value USA on pages. Estimate = $130.00 $13.00
381 Worldwide - Swastika - Good and Evil. A fascinating 43-page exhibit with over 40 covers/cards and numerous stamps and/or postmarks with the Swastika symbol, going back to the early 20th century. Includes the period where a Swastika was a positive symbol, represented on greeting post cards and town cancels. There is the requisite period where the Nazi’s turned the world’s perspective on it, followed then a bit on its re-emergence on the swastika as a positive symbol again. Complete with the owner’s original research and additional material that was not mounted (such as a terrific cover with a full back map showing Swastika Ontario). Near impossible to duplicate. Estimate = $180.00 $55.00
382 Worldwide - Two boxes of philatelic mish-mash from all across the planet. Box ONE includes a binder of mostly Harris pages covering A-U countries, a sparsely populated Citation album from the early 1960’s and three shoeboxes filled with 102 cards / glassines (with a little bit of everything). Box TWO is 9 volumes including a dedicated binder of South Africa, a binder of United States and a bit of Channel Islands and the balance of volumes being binders or stockbooks with a wide range of material that does not fit into any specific category. This will make for interesting identifying and sorting. Thousands of stamps in total. Estimate = $200.00 $38.00
383 Worldwide - U-Haul Box of mini-collection accumulations, as received. A combination box lot, comprising of several small lots, not enough to stand on their own, but combining to make an enticing mixed offering. Includes (in no particular order)...1) Scandinavia (Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Faroe Islands), sorted off paper and in glassines / "102" cards within small box (several hundred stamps in total). 2) Worldwide Perfins and Canadian Precancels, sorted into glassines / cards within a small box. 3) Shoebox of 1970's / 1980's Christmas Seals (still in original envelopes) and a smattering of "odds and ends" including labels and stationery cut squares. 4) Two older stockbooks, one containing USA, the other Worldwide. 5) Zambia used (off paper) sorted into envelopes. 6) San Marino sorted into envelopes / glassines (small box, mostly used). 7) Trinidad & Tobago / Gold Coast, several hundred mostly used sorted into envelopes. 8) Small box containing a collection (although more of an accumulation) of Airmail Labels (etiquettes). 9) Shoebox with Australia / USA on-paper mix (including more recent) and a bundle of British FDC. 10) Dozens of envelopes with a mix of Canada / Worldwide, sorted or semi-sorted into categories (such as WW mix / Canada / "Sand Dunes" etc). Lots of sorting ahead for the intrepid collector. Estimate = $300.00 $17.00
384 Worldwide - Unusual and seldom offered accumulation of 1980’s machine generated postage labels. A mixed group which includes Frama, Automat or any other number of issuing companies. Needless to say, these were overlooked, sometimes intentionally, by the philatelic world. Over time, there has been a greater appreciation for the scarcity of these issues and they are appearing more often in catalogues as people are realizing that they shouldn’t have thrown so much of this material in the recycling bin! This bankers box is packed with a worldwide accumulation of mint, used and on cover / card (both commercially and philatelically used). A good 300+ items, including (in no particular order) : Chile, Brazil, Germany, Netherlands, Israel, Singapore, Japan, Australia, France, Belgium, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Lithuania, Portugal, Macau and many more. Includes three pocket-sized catalogues from the late 1980’s that were the first kick at codifying these items and a small stack of New Zealand (non-label) permit envelopes back to about 1940. A near-impossible lot to duplicate lot. Estimate = $160.00 $13.00
385 Worldwide - We had bear-ly opened this box of "on and off" paper with some packet material when we saw several used copies of Canada’s $8 Grizzly stamp. Buried in here is a box of worldwide stamps, sorted in envelope by country, then almost every other spot in this box is filled with stamps from all over, throughout the 20th century, up to about 2010. An interesting mix, being desk clean-up from an estate. We guarantee thousands of stamps inside! Estimate = $120.00 $19.00
386 Worldwide - Western Europe. Sturdy potato box with 13 albums, stock books, binders of stockpages, dealer stock and collector duplicates with a good range of single country collections. In no particular order we noted Belgium, Norway, Greece, Austria, Netherlands (2), Italy, Switzerland (2, including some covers), Lichtenstein and France (2). A good range of classics to the early Millenium and everywhere in between. Thousands of stamps in total, being both mint and used with duplication. Reasonably organized and good appearance. Lots of happy hunting awaits the successful bidder. Estimate = $200.00 $16.00
387 Worldwide - Winter is coming! Trio of U-haul boxes are packed with albums, stock books and loose pages which should keep you tied up for days! Includes leftovers from estates, or odds and ends accumulated over a period of time. We gave this a cursory look and it appeared like much of this material hasn’t seen the light of day for decades. There is no real theme here, but expect a range of material to keep you trotting across the philatelic world. Estimate = $300.00 $42.00
388 Worldwide / Europe - Year sets, presentation folders, booklets and stamp books from the 1970’s to 2008. Lot includes Iceland "Imagine Peace Tower" (John Lennon), Austria year sets 1992-1994, "Our World" multi-nation Antarctic preservation, France 1986-2003, English Channel (joint issue with France), 5 small Swiss PTT-Souvenir booklets, Sweden year sets 1976-1979, Portugal 1989-1990 (both soft and hard cover), 1990’s paintings and colony year sets for Azores, Madeira, Macau (1988). Lot finishes with two sets of "Top of the World" issues from Scandinavian countries, 6 assorted packs from Greenland plus a couple other incomplete booklets thrown in. Significant original cost with much of this material typically produced in very limited quantities. Estimate = $140.00 $11.00
389 Worldwide Covers - Hoard of over 1000 covers and postcards, crammed into a "wine box" from across the globe. A nice mix of both commercial and philatelic mail, with almost no material from Canada (and only a small group of USA and Britain). We noted registered mail, airmail, rates, censors and first day covers (to name a few). In need of a good sort and easily worth the estimated value. Estimate = $200.00 $22.00
390 Worldwide Covers - Postal History filling a file box, most from modern correspondences. Most are loose or bundled, but there are a couple of albums of mounted GB covers (Machin rate covers, OHMS or Forces mail). There are covers in layers including Israel, Canada, USA, Australia and Europe, with the bottom of the box being a series of large parcel pieces sent from Japan to the United States. Most are 1980’s-2000 (give or take). Perhaps some potential finds here for the "modern" Postal Historian. Estimate = $100.00 $10.00
391 Worldwide Covers - Switzerland 1960's to 1980's accumulation of First Day Covers and Special Event covers. A total of 616 covers, neatly packed into a dealer show box. Lightly duplicated, but includes many better sets and singles including Europa, semi-postals and a great showing of Switzerland's colourful commemorative issues of the period. Conservatively estimated at less than 20c per item. Estimate = $120.00 $13.00
392 Worldwide Covers - Switzerland 1970's to 2000's accumulation of First Day Covers, Special Event covers and Flights. A total of 543 covers, packed into a dealer show box, being a hoard of a long-time collector of Swiss material. We noted many better stamps in the group, often in sets including higher-values and semi postals. A nice range of event covers, including a few foreign (France / UK). The stamps alone would have a significant catalogue value. Estimate = $120.00 $16.00
393 Worldwide Postcards - Christmas Greetings Collection. Assembly of 262 vintage pre-1920 postcards all with Christmas themes including many embossed cards. A visually striking group, just in time for the holidays. Collected over a number of years (decades), these were all chosen for quality both in condition and subject matter. Estimate = $150.00 $34.00
394 Worldwide Postcards - Dealer's stock of Topical theme postcards PART 1. A cardboard dealer show box, filled with 385 cards (individually sleeved, some priced) covering the themes of Hunting, Indigenous Peoples, Inns (Lodges), Jewelry, Leap-Year, Leather, Libraries, Lighthouses, Literature and Logging.

397 Worldwide Postcards - Two vintage 1920's postcard albums containing 222 postcards, likely compiled by a travelller during the period as a keepsake of a trip. Includes primarily views of Ireland, England (mostly London), Switzerland and France, with the occasional "odd-ball" or greeting Art or Greeting style postcard. A nice clean archive of material, with the albums themselves being in excellent condition for likely 100 years old! Estimate = $120.00 $28.00
398 Worldwide Supplies - Box-Lot containing thousands of used (and some unused) glassines, dealer cards and stockcards, neatly organized into boxes by the previous owner. Also included is a small FDC album and a shoebox of (mostly) black mounts either lightly used, or partially used packages. Lots of life left in these supplies, representing many hundreds of dollars in original retail cost. Estimate = $120.00 $110.00
