Clive Hodgkinson, a resident of Rochester (Vic), was a major collector during the 1920s and 1930s. He died many years ago & it was believed his collections had been fully disposed of. However, just this year, his daughter decided to sell this last album. Included was a good range of Kangaroo imprint pairs & blocks that are also offered in this sale.
Rather basic collection but including a simplified set of Kangaroos with very fine Third Wmk £1 grey & CofA Wmk £2, 5/- Bridge CTO (small thin), etc, condition variable.
