Match and Medicine Private Die Proprietary Collection. Balance of the Barnes collection in two beautifully mounted volumes, containing probably 600 different stamps by Scott number and paper type, this also includes Perfume, Playing Cards and 1898-1900 Issues, few multiples as well, largely complete, generally lacking the multi-hundred dollar Scott Retail items, the rarities and a few others, outstanding foundation collection that would take a long time to duplicate one stamp at a time, general overall condition is much better than typically encountered, a sensational lot that was mounted by Warren H. Colson for this collector well before World War II
