Worldwide Collection. In eighteen albums (all but two are Scott Specialty albums), plus there is additional group on Scott Specialty pages (this group would probably fill four albums), the vast majority is Europe and Colonies, some 19th Century, but there is very little in the way of high cataloging clunkers, some countries are quite well filled with unused or used, incl. some modern Mint N.H. sets in mounts, other areas area little spotty, but even these often have some better stamps included, the consignor carefully catalogued the lot using the 2012 Scott, and came to a total of over $140,000.00 (the consignor did not get around to cataloging five of the albums, so they are not included in the total), the tapes of each country are included, we did a quick spot-check and the catalogue values seem largely correct, typical mixed condition for a collection of this size, overall a useful lot with a huge catalogue value
