Officials, Unused Collection. Housed on stock, dealer and auction lot cards, wide coverage of each Department with individual examples cataloguing many hundreds each, both unused (no gum or regummed) and original gum, while condition is slightly mixed, we notice a large number of well-centered and sound examples, generally Fine or better, worthy of careful viewing as the total catalogue value should prove to be quite large
