Lot 319
Vatican, Triangular Collection, 1929-76. If "parallel" is mint and used, what else is a collection to be called that has mint, used and First Day Covers?; eight volumes in all, two mint and apparently complete (including #35-40, accompanied by 1956 A. Diena certificate, along with the receipt for the items and the certificate (an additional $5!)); two volumes used which, while not complete, have made a strong start; and four volumes of covers, the vast majority of which are First Days (again, incomplete, but a valiant effort), including for early Airmail issues, 1950 Holy Year Semis, even a First Issue complete on cover (not a First Day); we'd say the collection's immaculate, but that might be sacrilegious; additional material includes duplicates and several older Bolaffi Vatican catalogues, Fine to Very Fine or better, a must-See. Shipping charges apply - weight 50 lbs.
Estimate $1,500 - 2,000.
Realized $1,500.
