Scandinavia: Sweden, Sensational Used Officials Collection, 1881-96. Neatly hinged on quadrille pages with full annotation, housed in two springback albums; a simply jaw-dropping holding, with thousands (we kid you not) of the perf 13 Officials with a Sweden-wide range of cancels; the stamps themselves are identified by shade, with plate flaws and varieties pointed out—we noted one 10öre with six plate flaws indicated; remarkably, given this issue's penchant for slipping off the paper, the majority of those here are wonderfully if not exquisitely centered; and while the colors are enough to feast your eyes on, but the cancels will keep you coming back for more, with most solidly struck and complete, just the kind of socked-on-the-nose examples that would please the most discerning collector, with most identified by Facit page number and (ancient, we're sure) catalogue value; mostly singles, but note pairs and a few blocks; a few mint sprinkled in as well; a remarkable achievement, Very Fine, clearly a lifetime's labor of love, virtually impossible to duplicate today; a must-see. Shipping charges apply - weight 9 lbs.
Estimate $2,000 - 3,000.
