Netherlands Indies/Indonesia

Mint and used collection of over 1,500 different 1870 to 1979 period issues, all laid out in two (one Importa brand and one Davo brand) albums. The Netherland Indies portion is mixed mint and used, while the Indonesian portion is all mint (mostly NH). The more modern material includes Netherlands New Guinea, Riau, West Irian, and Indonesia proper. Some duplication (not counted in the "all different" total), as well as a few covers and cards. This lot represents an exceptional introduction to the stamp issues of this storied archipelago. Owner's total Scott catalogue over US$3,000.00=
