Bahamas, Collection, 1862-1948. On Vintage Reproduction of Scott Specialty pages from classical issues through George VI, containing: 8, 11-14, 11 shades (8 stamps of various shades), 11a, 11b, 13a, 13b, 14a, 14c, 16, 19, 20 with APS certificate, 22, 23, 24-25, 26b, 27-32, 33-36, 37-42, 44-47, 49-56, 58-62 (plus an extra set of shades), 70-84, 85-89, 100-13, 115 complete sheet of 60, 132-47b and MR1-14. Condition is much better than average with many fresh appearing and mostly sound issues, generally Fine to Very Fine and better. This collector really prized clean and well centered issues and didn't compromise to just fill holes, so you will find that even though we could have broken this down further, this collection is meaty with many difficult issues for you to fill in your collection or (if you are a dealer) break down for individual sale.
Scott $9,388 Estimate $2,000 - 3,000.
Realized $1,680.

Bahamas, Sunny and Bright Collection, 1860-1973. All mounted on Scott country pages, missing less than a dozen stamps for completion; beginning with the Chalon heads of 1860 (Scott #2, to be exact, with a light blue, non-face cancel), this runs through Christmas 1973, with regulars, Semi-Officials, Airs, Special Delivery and War Tax included; most earlies not surprisingly used, with some surprisingly early mints; mentionable are (mint unless otherwise noted) Scott #7 (used) 10 (used), 12-14, 20-21 (used), 27-32, 37-42, 44-47, 56 (poss. 84), 58-62, 70-84, 100-13, 116-29 (n.h.), with mint/n.h. mix running through the rest of the collection; one or two faults among the early stamps, generally Fine to Very Fine or better, a truly lovely collection; worth viewing.
Scott $5,000 + for Classics only Estimate $1,200 - 1,800.
Realized $900.
