Monaco Extraordinary Dr. Killien Unused Collection Balance, 1891-1992. Housed in three albums, virtually complete for the period and incredibly all Mint N.H. with the exception of a few early stamps missing and a couple lightly hinged, incl. Back-of-Book material such as Semi-Postals, Air Posts, Postage Dues, Pre-Oblits and even deluxe proofs and souvenir sheets, the collection contains numerous better sets and singles scattered throughout, the most impressive nature of this collection is the overall quality which is far superior to that of which we have seen from a Monaco collection, especially in regard to the Classic period which often comes grossly off-centered, Dr. Killien spent decades of careful upgrading to reach this pinnacle of quality rather than just purchasing items to fill a space, Very Fine-Extremely Fine, an absolutely superb collection, Yvert value
