This collection was put together by a very diligent philatelist and is offered complete. He has tried to get the best condition available but note the following: Description: Regretfully, time & space only allows for a brief 'snapshot' of the stamps held in these two albums. Many scarce stamps are included but not noted. Careful inspection imperative. Imperfs.: Many are four margin. However, some may be three but are still collectable stamps. Cancellations: Every effort has been made to get commercially used stamps only. Some CTO are noted and a very few fiscals can be found. The collector noted the fiscals, in pencil, under most stamps. There may be some fake postmarks but we have tried to indicate this in the description. Certificates: Most of the certificates are either B.P.A. or R.P.S. Some have qualifying condition comments and stamps are sold as such. Rarely offered intact, this collection affords ample scope for continuation, or could profitably be split and sold as singles and one country collections. (1000's)
