Bahrain # 1/295

Small aqua 32-page Lighthouse stockbook from the distant past containing 50 years of Bahrain, starting with mint and used overprints on Indian stamps and later British issues (noted blocks of 4 and 10 of the 1948 Olympics). After they started issuing their own stamps in 1960, there is some spotty mint and used coverage (there are singles cataloguing up to $7.50 each like a block of #PT2). But the pleasant surprise is a few of the early souvenir sheets including Horses #224, Concord #247a, Dogs #256 and five copies of wildlife #295. The stamps are in generally excellent condition, while the stockbook has seen better days. 2023 Scott US$825.30 =
