Lot 1022 The Leon V. Pont Collection Remainders Lot, containing a total of 150 covers, with duplication of some. There is a wide variety of material here, with good, better and best flights, frankings, cachets, postmarks, and more. We have photographed these online, which is the best way for us to describe this lot (a few pictures are worth many words). It should be noted that there are many items with faults, mostly in the form of staining from humid storage, and quite honestly speaking most of the best quality material has already been offered in other lots. That said, there are many fine to very fine items in this rare offering. A great lot still, for dealers or collectors alike, please carefully see our online photos. Estimate $1,500, sold for C$5,200.00 plus 17% buyer’s premium.
