    HUNGARY HOLDING. a two-volume holding of thousands of stamps from first issues to 1930s, with particular strength in the 19th century postmarks as well as the WW I occupation overprints (some dubious as alwways); much of this collector»s material remains in glassine envelopes with watermarks identified plus some still unsorted, however even on the postmark studies you will find that the vast majority of the stamps have been identified by perforation with pencil on the reverse; we note Austrian classics used in Hungary, Franz Josef 1871 issues incl. lithographed 3k light green used (short perf) nevertheless unusually well-centered and very attractive for this scarce stamp, followed by an exceptional range of postmarks on the envelope issues with page after page of well-struck cancels, including sections for Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia, Ruthenia, etc. as well as lettered Budapest postmarks A through Z, likewise the numeral types 1 to 90, etc. This clearly originated as a native old-time specialised collection before being stashed wholesale into the glassine envelopes, then partially re-displayed in more recent times. Better perf/ wmk combos are highly likely among the several hundred examples on the envelope issues. The same goes for the Turul issues, though most of these remain in glassines. In the second volume there is much back of the book including hundreds of organised WWI occupation issues with plenty of signatures, incl. Debrecen 25f blue Charles with black ovpt x3 all signed, 1st Transylvania (Kolozsvar) 1L on 25f ultra and 1L on 1k semi-postals, comprehensive Serbian occupations, etc, etc. Enormous potential here for the Hungary specialist, with finds a certainty! Please inspect carefully. Ex-Rothschild.
