4257 ogO   imageBELGIUM STOCK, A very intense original stock of thousands of mint and used stamps from the first issues to about 1950, much never hinged, densely crammed on old stock pages. Duplication is nowhere excessive with generally no more than five of each issue. We took the trouble to expand only half of one page of the seven pages here and just in this section alone we found: more than 20 imperf classics inc. 1849 epaulettes #1 and #2 both collectable four margined copies, then 1865 1fr violet used (#22), the Leopold II issues with 5 francs sound used 1878 pale brown example with near-perfect centering and no discernible faults, signed by Richter (#39a), as well as a mint 5fr deep red brown of 1875 with pin hole hardly detracting from the appearance and otherwise in extremely fresh condition with vibrant color (#39). Then follow comprehensive 1893/1900 issues with se-tenant labels including two used examples of the 2fr lilac on rose (#74), one with a particularly neat cds cancel, leading on to first semi-postals with '1911' o/ps complete (#B9/B16), 'Charleroi &ndash, 1911' complete mint and used (#B17/B24), etc, etc. The rest of the material continues in the same vein with the vast majority in complete series, with loaded lines of better semi-postals to the 5fr mint and used and other back of the book inc. WWI occupations Eupen/Malmedy o/ps series complete to the 10fr, parcel posts and chemins de fer, etc. This has been broken down from many collections bought over the years with two or three tip-top quality comprehensive collections appearing to be the backbone of the stock, the vast majority being in excellent condition despite the inevitable occasional faults in the classics. This is such an intensely valuable lot with good series packed on top of each other making a difficult viewing. Please leave time for a careful inspection as there is so much more here than first meets the eye, offered intact as received. (Image) 4,000-5,000

A wonderful collection of Bosnia Herzegovina with some stamps here if not unique, certainly seldom seen, with certificates from the foremost experts in this field including Dejan Tubinovic, Predrag Zrinjscak, Bar Julij, Dragutin Marjanovic, etc. Here are hundreds of items neatly organised and written up, mint and used, housed in a Schaubek album, beginning with the November 1918 definitives complete to high values, replete with shades and an outstanding study of errors including an in-depth coverage of the broken letters in both cyrillic and roman alphabets, broken numbering, distinct o/p shades, etc, followed by postal history of the period and a study of different postmarks. Then probably the best part of the collection, certainly for scarcity, is the Hermes special delivery stamps again of course with cyrillic and Roman o/ps, with some extraordinary errors including the 2h vermilion with double overprint, showing not only the first cyrillic letter broken but also with bold offset of the double o/p on the reverse, signed Zrinjscak, possibly unique and certainly rare. Then the double o/p on 5h green signed 3 times, as well as the 5h with cyrillic o/p error and the 2h with latin o/p error (this time accompanied by Tubinovic certificate), followed by the invert o/ps again both accompanied by certificates, red o/p errors on the 5h green in both cyrillic and Roman, the latter showing yet another highly unusual offset on reverse, (both signed by Zrinjscak). There is similar detail again on the o/ps on 'wounded soldier' semi-postals, with the scarce 1916 types both mint and signed three times inc. Schlenger and Marjanovic, plus the important cyrillic o/p error on the 5h green this time with Bar Julij cert, then the 1918 types with 'wrong' languages all signed inc. cyrillic on 15h used on piece, both issues with red overprints, each with Zrinjscak certificates, etc. Then follows a fascinating extensive investigation of the Bosnian girl newspaper types with a study of private perforations, the 1918 square surcharges in multiples, errors inc. 3h on 2h ultra mint n/h pair with double o/p (signed Zrinjscak) and 5h on 6h violet mint block of four double o/ps (again signed Zrinjscak), shades and perforation varieties galore inc. imperf between multiples, extra rows of perfs, etc, followed by the 1920 circular surcharges with the complete set mint never hinged accompanied by Valdimir Fleck certificate and each signed by two other experts, plus the scarce 2h on 6h used on piece signed both by Zrinjscak and Sorani. Further highlights include inverted surcharges on 1906 scenic types complete mint never hinged (Zrinjscak certificate), registered postal history with three color frankings of the SHS/CXC o/ps on Wilhelm definitives all from the same correspondence, also 50h slate blue single usage with expertisation mark, a fantastic range of postage dues with swapped Latin for cyrillic o/ps on 1918s complete (Zrinjscak certificate), 1900/04 eagles with 'Porto' surcharges in cyrillic and Latin with range of errors inc very unusual inverted o/ps complete (Zrinjscak certificate), etc, etc. This is a truly absorbing collection and a joy to describe and view.

An excellent predominantly mint collection housed in two packed Scott Specialty albums, one for the regular issues and another specifically for the back of the book. This is clearly a perfectionist's collection, with virtually all the scarce material being in tip-top quality, mounted on the selvage where possible, only empty spaces where the collector could not find the condition to suit his demands. Beginning with the Hradcany issues, we note a full series to the 400h rouletted privately and a beautiful three color franking of 20h bluish green, 25h deep blue and 30h bister registered to Vienna, also colorful promotion labels of the period inc. Hermes with gymnastics equipment. This is followed by useful 1920s issues, especially high values, through extensive 1930s inc. 1937 Masaryk mourning issue cover with se-tenant label, Bratislava souvenir sheet on cover, etc. Then interesting wartime material inc. 1942 Britain-Canada-Czech label 'we shall be free again - together to Victory', 1945 coat of arms series first printing complete on registered express cover, then a later cover with special postmarks for the visit of Marshal Tito subsequently canceled, continuing (with hardly any empty spaces) through to the modern era including souvenir sheets and further promotional/propaganda items. Highlights in the second volume are the 'Posta Ceskoslovenska 1919' o/ps on Austrian stamps of 1916/18 to 10kr violet top value mint (the latter signed, we noticed a light gum crease visable only on the reverse mentioned for accuracy’s sake only), 1925 Olympics and 1926 Sokol series complete mint, first airposts complete (signed Gilbert and others), third series airpost surcharges complete on cover with various labels and postmarks, first flight and first day covers, unusual postage due material, Forces in Siberia complete mint, etc. Also Slovakia complete and much more. Please view page for page as there are many pleasant surprises throughout, much more here than described.
