Lot Photo Description
Lot 531
Greece, Herculean Accumulation, 1860's-1970's. In a large box and eight smaller boxes, packed with loose stamps, stamps crammed into glassines and stock pages, the occasional album or stock book, some highlights include: a small box of earlier Crete issues and many many commemorative issues from the Olympics to the modern issues, some larger multiples of 1930's issues with surcharges, but the real meat we saw was the many many Hermes head issues that abounded in a couple small boxes and a portion of a stock book with glassines and dealer tear pages filled and rows after rows of stamps sorted by issue in stockbook. If you are a specialist of these early classical issues, this lot should rank high on your viewing list because there will be so much material that you are not likely to see again in this quantity for quite some time, generally Fine to Very Fine appearance, after just a little bit of sorting and processing, there is a lot of potential to generate serious Scott value.
Estimate $5,000 - 7,500.
Realized $4,000.
