Iceland # 10/234 plus Back of the Book

A lovely collection of early Icelandic issues on old "KA-BE" Ideal pages, with 193 stamps up to 1940. The early "Royal Emblem" issues are attractive with discernable cancels. There is good representation from the few early 20th century "Kings", "Two Kings" and "Jon Sigurdsson" sets. Noted some good overprints and revaluations (including mint #137-138). The "back of the book" is strong, with semi-postals, nice mint airmails including C4-C8 and a good offering of officials including 9 denominations of the 1930 overprinted "Parliament" set. Many are in black mounts added by the previous owner. Great appearance and condition. The catalogue value will add up quickly here. Estimate =
