Lot 565

Worldwide, Postcard and Cover Treasure Hunt Lot, late 19th to 1990's. Approximately half a dozen large boxes filled with covers. The important thing to note about this lot is that the collector had about a five year decline where he mixed up much of his collection, so here you will find some great items intermingled with common covers to the point that it is impractical for us to sort the premium from the chaff. That makes this an amazing treasure hunt lot because there are many great items floating about, some areas of note include 50+ postcards, mostly from the 1910's from Austria with oil and petroleum themes, group of 30 1930's French Morocco postcards, box of better with some WWII locals, WWI feldpost, POW, etc., various countries represented; Vietnam, Canada, Western Europe with strong Germany, Switzerland with semi-official airmail covers, general British Empire, Latin America, Middle East, Holyland usages, etc., expect a couple sorting days if you are the lucky high bidder, generally Fine to Very Fine, from Leo Malz collection. Shipping charges apply - weight 146.8 lbs.
Estimate $2,000 - 3,000.
