Valuable mint and (mostly) used collection of 1864-1904 issues from this popular South African colony, a total of 478 stamps neatly stored on 7 double-sided Vario stockpages. The previous owner accurately identified the stamps with small paper tags but the catalogue values are out of date - they have invariably improved in the meantime. Note #39 with unlisted 'Broken y' variety in shifted overprint. Small section of revenues and cut squares at the end are not included in the catalogue value. 2021 Scott US$1939.80 =
