Georgia, Sweet as a Rose Collection, 1897-2008. Broadly covering Georgian philately, with stamps and covers arranged on stockpages in a binder; collection begins with five cards or covers from the 1897-1910 period, franked by Imperial Russian stamps, followed by a strong holding of National Republic issues; these are mostly mint with some used with either Cyrillic or Georgian cancels; here you'll find perf and imperf issues, multiples/part-sheets, etc., with enough duplication for further study; overprinted issues include #36//40 identified by large or small overprint, a semi-specialized page of 15000r on 15k surcharges, the unofficial Constantinople overprints, and black star-overprinted Russian issues; the collection is rounded out by an unoverprinted proof strip of five #B2, #B2 and B3 with misplaced overprints, 1923 Soviet Republic issues, plus a modern selection including the tough-to-find Europa 50th Anniversary issues, Very Fine, much of interest; see it all online.
