Japan, Vintage Old Time Horde of Sheets and Large Multiples. Excellent and highly uncommon horde hidden away for generations, comprised of complete sheets and large multiples from just a few different issues.

While some sheets are perfect, others have separations and other such marginal flaws as to be expected, with the stamps being fresh and never hinged, and the sheets not taking into account the imprints and marginal markings. A fascinating and valuable old find, well worth inspection.
