Lot 205
Austria, Awesome Cover Compilation, 1861-1970s. Collector-built over a lifetime with, by our estimate, well over 2500 items in total, roughly one-third of which are early Franz Josef postal stationery items, both mint and used; the collection generally falls either side of WWII (only a handful of Reich-era material is included), but everything you could want is here: definitives (including examples from better issues), commemoratives, Semi-Postals, Airs, Express, etc., along with perfins, Feldpost, mixed frankings, and more; very small part philatelic in nature, the overwhelming majority real-world mail, including a nice array of stampless and early Franz Josef adhesives (including Anniversary issues); perhaps most impressive is the geographical breadth of the collection, for while Vienna is the origin on many, we also find Krakow and Prague, Brno Mesto and Trieste; Sarajevo, Dubrovnik, Bihac and Mostar; Gracenica and Olmutz plus—before they took on darker tones, Theresienstadt and Oswiecem Railway Station cancels; a small selection of Bosnia & Herzegovina postal stationery is an unexpected bonus, Fine to Very Fine with better, Tyrol your friends about this one.
