Miscellaneous Balance of the Henson Collection. Housed in a single wine box, a large quantity of stock cards, lot cards, sales sheets, loose stamps, etc., many with certificates in a range of grades but most are uncertified, these were part of the raw material that Mr. Henson used to find high quality stamps for grading -- which he never was able to complete, as such there are very choice stamps included along with lesser quality stamps, also noted are some better varieties including No. 832b (USIR wmk.), a recalled Legends of the Wet sheet and a group of Farely imperforates from the Harold Ickes collection (with P.S.E. certificates), however it is disorganized and in no particular order so viewing is recommended, overall Very Fine-Extremely Fine
