Australia Nearly Complete Unused Collection. 1913-1940, on album pages, with all of the Kangaroo sets to £2 (Third Watermark series contains only one £2), all of the King George V sets, with some shade varieties, Commemoratives of the period, with some in additional blocks of four (including the 5sh Sydney Harbor Bridge), all of the Postage Dues except for one inexpensive 1p stamps, but does contain both 10sh and 20sh stamps, and a run of Officials, the stamps are housed in the old crystal mounts enclosed on four sides, where they have probably sat for decades, this has led to the gum lightly sticking to the back (cardboard side) of the mount, we opened a few of the mounts and noticed some popped off with ease, while others required more time and conscientious effort, we believe that someone with patience, skill and care could remove the mount and still preserve the original gum, though tiny bits of black residue may still adhere (though a knowledgeable person could even remove that), Fine-Very Fine, our estimate takes into account the time and effort to prepare the stamps for resale, and would be much higher if all the stamp were lightly hinged
