A ‘Roo and KGV "Heads" rich mounted collection with regular issues up to about 2008. Includes a touch of mint (and a bit heavily hinged) issues, with attractive copies of #5, 45 and 49. The "Roos" run up to 5/- values (#44 with a surprisingly light parcel cancel). There is a good run of "Heads" including dies, perfins, cancels (and include an envelope of stamps that didn’t quite make it to the pages). The assignment of some watermarks could use double-checking, but we have left them as the original owner had them listed. The 1930’s onwards is a mix of mint and used, and the occasional nice multiple, with some "back of the book" and a few covers to add to the appeal. After about 1980 the collection gets sparser but did see denominations up to $20.00 and some modern "Specimen" overprints. Approximately 1300 stamps, with light duplication. Estimate =
