Lot 2405 -
Cuba, Sensational Four-Volume Collection, 1855-1929. Most definitely not your grandfather's collection—even grandpa would be envious of this outstanding holding, all neatly mounted on homemade pages; selected with a keen eye for condition and quality, this collection offers a rarely encountered depth and breadth of material, with singles, blocks of four, various Specimen types ("Specimen" overprints with security punch, "Muestra" overprints, etc.), plate and trial color proofs on paper and card, booklet panes, imperforates including arrow blocks of four and cross-gutter blocks of 16, First Day Covers, numerous lovely usages, and much, much more; among the too-numerous-to-list highlights are a complete unexploded booklet of the 1925-28 2c Gomez stamp; a stellar mint Telegraphs holding; specialized Lindbergh holding including a block of four proof of the overprint, doubled using two different colors, a Feb. 13, 1928 cover bearing flight cachet, and a Lindbergh-franked postcard sent by someone who witnessed his landing, numerous First Air Train stamps (including a rare double surcharge—only 200 known) and covers along with an article on the service, perforated and imperforate Matanzas part-sheets (plus First Day Covers), a lovely ad for Havana stamp dealer M. Pascual, and on and on; several covers are foxed, but the rest of the collection could have come from the Post Office yesterday, Very Fine, so enticing we had to image it all online; do not miss this one.
