O

The "rats & mice" of the collection. A selection of mostly defective but generally presentable stamps from 22 users with values to 2/- (2) and including Red (10) & Blue (3) Overprints. The best item is Red 'C.S.' on 1/- with GPO cds of AP1/68 being First Day of the Departmentals. (Qty 39)

$440.00






482

O

The very colourful balance of the collection with 76 stamps from 29 users and values to 2/- (3) including 'P.S.' '3-PENCE' in Black on 4d blue (Ex Colonel Napier, with RPSofL Certificate). The lot comprises Red (19), Blue (3) & Black (54) Overprints. Grossly misplaced perfs, early dates and some fine stamps noted. The condition is rather mixed but most are attractive and quite presentable. By any measure this is an appealing opportunity, especially at such an enticing estimate. [See our website for scans of the entire lot] (Qty 72)
