Worldwide, Dealer Stock, Late 19th to Mostly 20th Century. Large stock meticulously organized and identified in #3 glassines, housed in over 170 counter boxes in alphabetical country order and easily containing over 60,000 individual glassines with strong selection of British Commonwealth, Western Europe and a bit of Asia and Latin America, with stronger areas that include: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Finland, France with some decent offices in Colonies, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Japan with many better commemorative complete sets, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal with a bit of colonies, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and U.S., individual stamps and sets which range from mostly a few dollars and up to $50 or more, with sets picked for desirability and sound condition, the first thing you will notice is the degree of precision this previous owner had with not only how he picked his stamps, but also the methodical way he sorted and made careful notes about each item. Keep in mind, when you view, with our conservative estimate of 60,000 glassines and $30,000 low estimate, likely in excess of $300,000 catalog value (which could be conservative). On our estimations, the stock breaks down to only 50¢ a glassine and the average glassine Scott price and quality is higher than you often see with dealer stocks, so be sure allow enough time to value appropriately, the vast majority of the stamps are o.g., some stamps never hinged, generally Fine to Very Fine, a useful stock of much better quality than usually encountered with many fresh and sound complete sets, a bourse or internet sale in one lot!
Estimate $30,000 - 40,000.
