Included are: Baden #6/LJ2; Bavaria #3/70, Bergdorf (reprint not valued); Brunswick #24/26, Hamburg #6/25; Hanover #2/23, Lubeck #4-5 (the former is expertly re-backed and the cancellations are suspect); Prussia #3/27, Saxony #9 (x 3), 19; Schleswig #23; Thurn & Taxis North) #26, 31; Thurn & Taxis (South) #42/55; Wurttemberg #2/49, North German Confed. #1/21. The consignor states that stamps of particular note are Bavaria #3, Thurn and Taxis #31 and #52. While there will be faults, the material is generally sound and collectible. Includes a few cut squares (not valued). Most are used but a few MH are noted. The obvious re-prints have also not been valued. Owner's 2019 Scott US$3,563.80=
