This collection really focused on filling in every number, so occasionally condition was sacrificed and although there are over 100 certificates (most of which were issued by Alan Miller), some of the classical issues may have removed cancels or regums, but the collection was also collected in the old time spirit with various interesting cancels and little varieties and some sets in both mint and used condition. This collector truly loved and obsessed over his collection, carefully updating and accounting for each stamp with an inventory list on each page, which should make figuring this collection easier. We recommend viewing to properly evaluate, generally Fine to Very Fine appearance.
Estimate $40,000 - 60,000.

France, Valuable Mint Imperforate Collection, 1939-94. About 1200 stamps (pairs and blocks counted as one for this) neatly arranged in two stockbooks, mostly in complete sets and includes many in the €200-€300 catalog value per set, high degree of completion, what struck us as unusual was the fact that most of the singles or sets not only have sheets margins but also are with large margins and extremely fine, what we examined was never hinged, but we would be safe to say some are ligthtly hinged, just to play it safe. includes regular issues, commemoratives, semi postals, airmails, postage dues, officials, a truly incredible collection that would be difficult to duplicate, one of, if not to the finest imperforate collections we have had the pleasure to bring to market, viewing will only further convince you that this is an incredible collection and can be added upon or easily broken down for the trader, o.g., mostly never hinged, Very Fine or better.
