    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.

    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!

    COLLECTORS DUPLICATE STOCK Glassine box filled to overflowing with many hundreds of mint and used stamps sorted by Scott numbers. The stock begins with a handfull of primarily used classics beginning about 1886 and continues in a sparse fashion into the late 1920s. Starting about 1930 the stock gains strength in mostly mint stamps and then continues into the 1980s.Starting in the mid 1970s there is a section of used duplicates, ending in the 1980s. Although we did encounter a few stamps in the $10 to $30 range, the vast majority are rather inexpensive sets and singles.
