U.S. Unused Collection, 1873-1965. Scott National album with nearly all unused stamps, mounted in "coffin" mounts so very difficult to assess gum, however we were surprised that many of the individual lots taken out were Mint N.H., as such we expect original gum as the norm and the winning bidder may be pleasantly surprised by some Mint N.H.
