    Lot# : 3731 GREECE

    GREECE USED COLLECTION AND ACCUMULATION Five stockbooks of various sizes containing mostly used stamps with a smattering of mint. The main collection, if it can be so called, is found in the fattest stockbook and although there are some late 19th century issues, this book is almost exclusively 20th century issues starting about 1919, followed by a page or two of the 1923 overprints on Crete. The few mint stamps in these two pages are the sole mint stamps in the main collection. Continuing into the 1930s is the real strength since a significant portion of the value is to be found from this period to about 1960, though the collection does extend into the 1980s. Next is a slender Lighthouse stockbook that holds the early Hermes Heads section. The owner spent quite a bit of effort to identify these issues and grade them. Individual stamps with faults are noted in this section which also represents significant value. The last three stockbooks are the duplicates and one of these three holds mostly mint singles with a few sets. A knowledgeable collector with a little time on his hands could make this into a worhwhile collection.
