Hundreds of covers filling a box, based on the Columbian Issue stamps, stationery and official souvenir postal cards, incl. common 2c and 3c with a wide variety of usages, but also better items up to the 50c, we notice a large amount of foreign destinations throughout Europe, Central and South America and even Japan, some unused stationery, a few still on old lot cards from the 1980s, mixed condition but many Fine or better, we estimate high retail potential for this popular area
