Worldwide, Butterflies on Cover Collection. Easily thousands of covers encompassing every way a butterfly can appear: butterfly-themed stamps, special/commemorative cancels depicting or celebrating butterflies, meter imprints, corner cards, lepidopterist mail, post cards…you name it, it's here; these arrived in plastic storage bins of various sizes, all of which are full, along with several binders; many covers are already roughly sorted by country (A-C, D-G, etc.), while many, many more will need to be sorted into whatever order you choose; part of a larger, multi-topical consignment, so there may be some cross-pollination, Very Fine, inspection a must.
Estimate $3,000 - 4,000.

Lot 1590

Worldwide, Kaleidoscope of Butterflies. A simply breathtaking compilation, housed in 17 (!) binders with an additional three storage bins' worth of material to sort; from Ajman to Zimbabwe, this collection has the world covered and includes singles, sets, souvenir sheets, complete panes, even several covers; we note not just the issued stamps, but color shifts as well as misperforated or imperforate stamps as well; anything adhesive with a butterfly theme is here—postage stamps, Christmas and Anti-Tuberculosis seals, National Wildlife Fund poster stamps, etc.; note sheets from Cuba and Mongolia (the latter only CTO), Hawaiian postal cards (the Queen has a butterfly in her hair), full strikes of butterfly US fancy cancels, and much, much more; nearly everything in binders is identified by country with year and/or Scott number; the binders are generally sorted, though the entire collection needs a bit of TLC to fully organize, Very Fine, must see to believe.
Estimate $3,000 - 4,000.

Worldwide, Anyone for Soccer? . Then this is your lot; just about anything you can think of soccer-related is here, with material sorted by World Cup year (13 binders, up to and including 2010), by country (6 binders, 3 plastic tubs and 3 file boxes), plus a whole slew of additional material yet to be sorted and organized; singles, set and souvenir sheets, along with postal stationery (the latter both mint and used); from our review, all stamps are mint and never hinged, though in a holding of this size, there may be the odd hinge or cancel present; this came from a larger topical-filled consignment, not perfectly sorted by the owner, so there may be something other than a soccer ball floating in the material; still, one of the largest such collections you're likely to see, Very Fine, bid high—it will be the best own goal you'll ever make.
Estimate $3,000 - 4,000.
