Lot Photo Description
Lot 574
Bosnia & Herzegovina, Amazing Specialist's Collection, 1879-1918. In two bulging stockbooks with a near-complete run of Austrian Bosnia; mint, used, proofs, stationery, forgeries--it's all here; shade, perf, paper and gum varieties are present, as are imperfs, overprint errors and "unofficial" perforations; regular postage used as revenues, Dues, Newspapers, Special Handlings and Revenues; Austrian Feldpost stamps overprinted, Printers' Waste, and Yugoslav "Kraljevstvo S.H.S." overprints (in both Latin and Cyrillic) including a set used on Registered cover; stationery includes envelopes, postal cards and letter cards (mint and used examples), Feldpost, Red Cross/Prisoner of War covers and Censors; numerous cancels--both type and city--are included (among them an example of Sarajevo's sole machine canceler); not all high values are here (many of the 10Kr Franz-Josephs are missing), but what is here is astounding; annotated throughout with reference to Michel numbers; enough duplication to allow the collector to do further research or the dealer to replenish and deepen stock, generally Fine to Very Fine with much better, there's far too much here to list everything of interest; viewing is highly recommended--whatever your passion, you won't be disappointed.
