While this enormous holding would typically be offered in our Kelleher & Rogers, Ltd., sister firm in Hong Kong, the sheer size of this holding precludes this, and thus the property is offered herein. As per the inventory, nearly $1,450,000.00 of value lies in mint, never hinged, while the remaining total lies in used or CTO issues. In total, this property represents a unique opportunity to acquire one of the last and possibly only remaining old time stocks of this most popular country., fresh and Fine to Very Fine or better.
