Lot 1387 Worldwide Mint and Used Collection in 22 Scott International Postage Stamp albums and another 40 or so countries on loose Scott pages (albums missing, but most of these separate pages have been catalogued by owner at between $75 and often $300 or $400 per country). A nice A to Z collection, from the classics to the mid-1990s, with hidden treasures to be found. We note mint and used singles, sets, a few covers, souvenir sheets, blocks, se-tenant multiples, back of the book, revenues, some unlisted material and much more. Some countries are very well represented, such as Belgium, Romania, Germany, Russia, Japan and so many more, but we especially note nice Natal, Spanish Colonies, Hong Kong and France. Many thousands of stamps in all, with good value in each album and well worthy of a close inspection, as we note several sets in the hundreds of dollars and a quantity of valuable material. Condition appears to be overall nice throughout, with the odd fault as is usual for a collection of this type. Also comes with four shoe boxes of duplicates in 102 cards for A to Z countries and a box of loose, plus a thick Harris Senior album, a spring back album and a stockbook with many hundreds of Worldwide stamps. Estimate $3,000, sold for C$5,200 plus buyer’s premium.
