                  Collections and Mixed Lots.

        1     Large cardboard box with many thousands of stamps – packets, pages, stockleaves, bundles,
         
     stockbook, etc. Quite a decent general standard with very many stamps included of medium
         
     value (i.e. from a few pence to a pound or two each), country collections, and so on.
         
     Includes some covers also. þ       ..                 ..               ..                   ..               ..                £200.
        2     Large box of odds, apparently gathered from numerous collections over a number of years.

         
     We have extracted many single lots from this property, and suspect there might still be
         
     some more finds for the observant sorter. Some, however, are obviously just cheap dup-
         
     licates. Consists of old albums, pages, cut-up pages, many odds and loose. (1,000s) þ            £150.
        3     Massive quantity of world stamps in three cartons. Most is in glassine packets, and many
         
     are probably of 100 different stamps, although there must be other contents in some. Based
         
     on the gross weight of the lot being over 39kg, and that one packet (of 100 diff.) weighed
         
     4.7g, we reckon there's about 750,000 stamps here. Probably made up about 1960s. þ          £150.
        4     An odd mix in carton, with a general world colln. (countries Q-S only), two folders with a
         
     few mint blocks, m. & u. stock of Monaco in stockbook, stockbook of Turkey, printed album
         
     of mint Austria mainly 1940s-70s, and six other mixed stockbooks. (1,000s) þ                        £140.
        5     Heavy box containing sixteen stockbooks/albums, the bulk being European (some reasonable

         
     country ranges), and within that the strongest part German. Germany includes standard
         
     material, philatelic productions, some reprints, and some better values. (1,000s) þ £120.
        6     Small box with bundle of stockcards (a few packets also) showing quite a variety of

         
     countries and types. Generally quite interesting and with high cat. (100s) þ             ..                    85.
        7     Medium box with a remainder Commonwealth M-N album, mixed world on stockcards,
               s/book of W.Germany, etc., and a bundle of unsold Buy or Bid lots (s.t.c.£2,114) (100s)
þ         75.
        8     Old broken suitcase with a mix of mainly old picked-over albums, often quite old contents,
               and inc. one from late 19th century with a few items of postal stationery, some interesting
               philatelic press-cuttings, etc. Also mixed world duplicates in packets. (1,000s)
þ 60.
        9     Bulk remainder lot in two cartons. Contains two large albums with bitsy world collection,
         
     some Hawid mounts, odds in packets, some covers/cards, etc. (1,000s) þ             ..                    45.
      10     World seln. of selected items on small stockcards. Some are damaged, some are dubious,

         
     but most have some value. Wide mix of Commonwealth and foreign countries. S.t.c. well
         
     over US$1,000. (but some of this wrong). (c.225)            ..                   ..               ..                    40.
      11     Carton with about fifteen remainder albums (some of these just wee junior jobs) and stock-

AUCTION PROGRAMME

Collections and Mixed Lots, continued.

              Europe; the following 30 lots come to us from a trade customer, who, attending an auction
         
     on the Continent, saw this as too big a bargain to miss, and bought them as one big lot, even
         
     though he didn’t want them for stock. We offer them here as single lots, and are confident that
         
     the vendor will see a decent profit. Each lot (of one stockbook) tends to be fairly (or very) sparse up to about early
         
     1960s (mixed odds/sets, m.m./u.m., some used), a few earlier bits in places. They become
         
     more complete about the mid-1960s generally in u.m. sets (probably as received as new issues)
         
     of commems, plus defins, miniature sheets, very occasional booklets, through to 2001. Little
         
     apparent duplication. This pattern may vary a little from country to country. The catalogue
         
     price quoted for each lot is as it was quoted by the original vendor, priced from Michel in
         
     Euros.

CREDIT CARDS

If you want your purchases charged in this way, please complete the appropriate section.
Do not complete these details unless you want to pay by credit card, and to have the lots posted.
