Great Britain Highly Specialized Shades Collection. Offered intact as received, housed in four albums on homemade pages, two main volumes of which cover the span of 1887 Victoria Jubilee thru King Edward VII and King George V period, meticulously collected by each of the different shades listed in the SG Specialised catalogue spanning the various printing authorities of De la Rue, Harrison and Somerset, the collector had the patience and perseverance needed to neatly mount each example with a small notation of the key identifications under each mount, what sets this collection apart is that nearly every item is in Mint N.H. condition in order to provide the "truest" color and shade possible, the only exception being in some of the shilling, Pound and Seahorse values, the degree of completion is far beyond any collection we have encountered, not to say it is near completion but the collector did have mounts for future inclusion of new acquisitions which are mainly down to the £800+ shade varieties, we notice an incredible array of shades which catalogue in the range of £100-700 each, other items of interest incl. numerous inverted and sideways watermarks, some straight forward material such as £1 P.U.C., some King George VI and a strong section of Pre-Decimal Queen Elizabeth II, mostly Fine-Very Fine, a truly remarkable collection for the shade specialist which would be excruciatingly difficult to recreate or duplicate
