British Commonwealth

British Pacific and Antarctic Colonies collections in pair of Stanley Gibbons springback albums (one a green "Senator" the other a red "Utile" - retail over $150.00 for the empty albums alone). Includes Australian (Australian Antarctic Territories, Cocos (Keeling), Nauru, Christmas Islands) and New Zealand (Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau, Ross Dependency, Penrhyn Islands, Samoa) administered colonies. Most are mint, many of the sets are complete, all housed in black mounts on quadrilled pages (expect the mint to be Hinged, but post 1975 most appears to be Never Hinged). The earlier tend to be a little sparse, but there is good value amongst what is there. Noted some nice overprints on New Zealand stamps, as well as many first sets being represented and the usual attractive topical coverage. A few hundred stamps in total, fresh and well-organized.
