  • Lot# : 3715 CRETE

    CRETE - BRITISH & RUSSIAN OFFICES COLLECTION.  Well written up for the most part with meticulous notes on combination of stock cards and quadrille album pages on the different types with originals to forgeries to non-contemporaneous cancels, as well as a study on the different gums and papers, the British Post Offices focus on the genuine to the Genoa types to the lithographed, etc. There must be at least 120 of these from the 10 para both blue and brown through to the 20 para red and green. A similar pattern with the Russian Post Offices, as there are several dozen ending with a few imperfs of the maps, issued under the Therison Revolutionary types of 1905, usual mixed condition, mostly F-VF, would be difficult to assemble again, as most of the reference copies themselves are quite scarce.
