Lot 1512
Afghanistan, Outstanding Collection, 1871-1973. Presented in a Schaubek album on homemade pages, this is one of the more extensive Afghan collections we've seen; it starts off strong, with 17 (!) Tiger Heads, mint or used, which are quickly followed by 1881-90 handstamped "seals" in red (unchecked for paper varieties)—including one on cover; the rest of the collection comprises a fairly strong overview of the Kingdom's issues, including Airs, Officials, Parcel Posts, and Fiscals; we note perforated, imperforate and part-perforate items, position pieces mint, apparently all of the early 1960s souvenir sheets, miniature sheets/complete small panes, even a Michel #342F with a 1972 DIIP certificate, Fine to Very Fine, much of Topical interest, plus early issues not often encountered; inspection invited.
Estimate $600 - 800.
Current Bid$300
