  • Lot# : 3412 PARAGUAY

    PARAGUAY PROOFS HOLDING. over 800 items housed in one volume, beginning with a dozen proofs and color trials of the 1870 first issues "vigilant lion supporting lion cap"; then several dozen of the second and third issues including imperforate blocks, again with rejected color trials, followed by seals of the treasure and Rivarola types, different papers and colors on the sentinel lion with probably over 100 types of this design alone; early 20th century with the 1906 governmental palace Asuncion, 1911 republic allegories, 1913 national coat of arms, even 1922 UPU types with missing centers, rejected designs, etc., nothing is here in excessive quantity, it is mostly just a few of each or single proofs in their own right, many of which would sell very well on EBay individually. To find many of these items is often difficult, however a quantity of over 800 in premier quality represents a real opportunity for the specialist, dealer or collector, that is hardly ever available on the market today.
