Scott 10-12, 13-15), massive, overall nice quality, mostly used selection of approximately 429 Small Dragon stamps, neatly assembled by perforation type (which, for the most part, appears to by correct), housed on a group of stockpages by value; allowing for some perforation types, we note Scott #10 (31 used and 8 mint examples), 11 (59 used, 7 mint) and 12 (30 used), plus 1888 issue #13 (63 used, 55 mint), 14 (a whopping 105 used plus 18 mint) and 15 (47 used, 6 mint); the mint examples are generally o.g., and the used section offers good cancel potential.
