Sale Number 1236, Lot Number 3145, Worldwide Balances & AccumulationsWorldwide Valuable Collection, Worldwide Valuable CollectionWorldwide Valuable Collection. Housed in two insanely bulging Stanley Gibbons New Ideal Albums, 1840 to the mid-1930s, even before perusing the pages one can sense this collection is not just any ordinary collection, as it was tenaciously and relatively neatly assembled by a true lover of stamps, one will certainly find easily recognizable valuable commercial items such as the Dollfuss stamp of Austria and a Liechtenstein Vaduz souvenir sheet (both mint), but the real virtue of this collection are the thousands of more modestly priced stamps of the world you do not find with any frequency anymore, the collection contains all areas of the world, but is especially strong in Western Europe, French and Italian Colonies, Scandinavia and other regions, by far the most valuable section is the strong representation of United States stamps that is especially well filled (even with auxiliary pages stuffed inside the bound pages), running the gamut from early used classics to complete 1893 Columbians (mixed unused and used), to even a never hinged set of 1930 Graf Zeppelins, the collection as a whole is not overburdened with faulty early classics, and while there is mixed quality on many early issues, the collection contains many Fine to Very Fine stamps, examination is highly recommended to confirm one does not see collections like this offered anymore

Worldwide Balance of Estate. Two boxes, one is filled with albums, much of the value in Switzerland (early to 1960s), but also Germany, Baltic States, and other areas, the other box is mostly loose material or covers, the loose (glassines, envelopes) should be inspected carefully, as we noticed some better items hidden amongst the more mundane, mixed condition
