Vatican, Attractive Collection, 1933-2006. On White Ace pages in five White Ace binders (with four dustcases), missing some early issues, but from 1953 (#158) through 2006 (#1344) it is complete mint regular issues apparently never-hinged except for one stamp (#1160) and two souvenir sheets (#792 and #829), each in black Showguard mounts; this is a very special lot with over a half-century of complete issues, obviously a great collection to complete or to break-down for quick retail sale online from this ever popular Papal state! o.g., never hinged, Fine to Very Fine.
