Austria & Lombardy-Venetia, Splendid Specialized Old-Time Dealer's Collection Pickings. A superb, mostly used assemblage of approximately 1125 or so items, more or less weighted towards the classics, keenly presented on 31 6" x 9" stockcards; many if not nearly all these items have been selected by a knowledgeable dealer, plucked out of dozens of collections over the years; most of the many earlies are selected for cancels, with a huge selection of scarce and/or superbly struck postmarks, though in addition we note lots of better individual items, good Military stamps, Revenues and special purpose items, items used on piece, etc., with virtually nothing after the 1940s; a fantastic way to clearly and visually spruce up a collection, as this group is certainly not lacking in eye-appeal, generally Fine to Very Fine or better, enjoy the entire contents of this holding on the web.
