The above detailed country descriptions will give you an idea of the depth and better stamps which comprise the countries in this exceptional collection, so rather than further annotating every scarce single or set, will list the remaining countries: British Honduras, Brunei, Burma, Cape of Good Hope, Cayman Islands, Ceylon, Christmas Island, Cocos Island, Cook Islands, Cyprus, Dominica, East Africa, Falkland Islands and Dependencies, Fiji, Gambia, German East Africa, Gilbert & Ellice, Gold Coast, Grenada, Jamaica, Jordan, Kenya-Uganda, Kuwait, Labuan, Lagos, Leeward Islands, Malaysia, Maldive Islands, Malta, Mauritius, Montserrat, Nauru, Nepal, Natal, Nevis, New Guinea, Niger Coast, Nigeria, New Hebrides, Niue, Norfolk Islands, Northern Nigeria, North Borneo, Nova Scotia, North-West Pacific Islands, Nyasaland, Palestine, Papua, Papua New Guinea, Pitcairn, Rhodesia, St. Christopher, St. Helena, St. Kitts-Nevis, St. Lucia and St. Vincent. This collection was carefully built up stamp by stamp over many decades and the exceptional quality exhibits that philatelic knowledge, with clean fresh material plus interesting varieties adding to the value (which adds up quickly with so many countries worth in excess of $1000 each). As noted, a few faults and a few cancels need review, but on balance the quality is F.-V.F. or better., Simply a great collection to break down into sets and singles or well above the norm country collections replete with key items from Queen Victoria up through 2007. Certainly one of the finest British Collections that we have had the pleasure to offer and well worth your careful consideration. Shipping charges apply - weight 44.4 lbs.

352   imageBritish Commonwealth, Select Mint & Used Collection, 1862-2000. This impressive mix of mint and used hinged on Minkus pages is comprised of British Asia and the remote outposts of the British Empire in the Atlantic, Indian and Southern Oceans. Beginning with Asia, all countries here are well represented and include many of the better sets, such as Brunei #62-75 mint and North Borneo #280-95 mint. In addition to these countries, you will also find more-than-adequate collections of Bangladesh (to the mid-90's), Burma/Myanmar (to the mid-80's), Ceylon/Sri Lanka (1972-1999), Hong Kong (1862-2000), India (1855-2000), Labuan, Malaysia (1963-2000), Sarawak and Singapore (1948-2000). What really caught my eye browsing this collection was the numerous scarcer sets of the Straits Settlements. Oodles of higher values will be found here including sets such as the Malayan States of Johore #130-150 mostly mint, Kedah #61-81 & #83-93 mint, Kelantan #50-70 mint, Negri Sembilan #38-58 mint, Penang #3-22 mostly mint and Perak #105-125 mostly mint. The Indian Ocean nations of Seychelles (1890-1990s) and the Maldives (1909-1992) are also well-filled with a mix of mint and used into the early 80's. As if this selection was not enticing enough, we also find some of the most remote places on Earth, which is probably one of the reasons they are so highly collectable. The Falkland Islands is extremely well-filled and mostly mint from 1935 into the mid-90's and includes a mixture of mint and used from its dependencies. St. Helena is a very well-filled mix of mint and CTO's up to 1990, as is Tristan da Cunha. Ascension is also very well represented and runs up to 1988 and mostly mint. Topping off this lot is the British Antarctic Territory from 1963-1999, a collection of mostly mint from the first issue (used) to the 2000 London Stamp Show souvenir sheet and not missing much in between. We encourage everyone interested in British Commonwealth to take a look and see what this lot has to offer., Fine to Very Fine. Shipping charges apply - weight 10 lbs.

Mint/Used Singapore hinged on pages, a stockbook of British Africa, a good selection of Machins, some decent classics and who know what else is buried under the piles. Although primarily British Commonwealth, you will encounter a bit of worldwide scattered throughout. Will certainly require some organization but undoubtedly worth the effort.

356   imageBritish Africa, Mint & Used Collection, 1863-2000. Once referred to as the "dark continent", Africa is still a fascinating area for collectors of the British Commonwealth. Some countries merged, others broke away and declared independence and some simply changed names. Whatever the case, you will find almost all in this collection mounted on Minkus pages. Our journey begins in West Africa with mostly mint collections of Sierra Leone (1883-1993), Gold Coast (Ghana) (1876-1989) and Nigeria (1914-2000). Heading down the coast, our next stop is a mint and used collection of South West Africa, better known today as Namibia (1923-2000). Its neighbor, Botswana (1887-1997) and previously known as Bechuanaland, has a good mix of mint and used. To the south is the Republic of South Africa (1910-2000), a mostly used collection accompanied by mostly mint collections of the independent states of Bophuthatswana, Ciskei, Transkei and Venda all into the mid-80's. Also related are collections of Transvaal, Orange River Colony, Natal, Cape of Good Hope and a very well-filled mint/used collection of Basutoland (Lesotho) (1933-1989) as well as Swaziland (1889-1998) with some better. Rhodesia became the countries of Zambia (1925-1997) and Zimbabwe (1890-2000), and both feature a mix of mint and used until the 80's, then mostly used thereafter. Travelling northeast we encounter a good selection of Malawi (previously British Central Africa / Nyasaland) (1891-1998), Tanzania (1961-1990s) along with a decent selection of Zanzibar (1898-1967), Kenya (1963-2000) and Uganda (1962-2000) with an abundance of souvenir sheets. We end our journey east of Madagascar on the islands of Mauritius (1863-2000), an impressive and even mix of mint and used. Don't be left behind! Botswana images are viewable online to give you a feel for this collection., Fine to Very Fine. Shipping charges apply - weight 15 lbs. (Video for this lot) (Image)

359   imageBritish North America, Mint and Used Collection, 1859-2000. A very impressive collection of the British Commonwealth in North America and the Caribbean hinged on Minkus pages with overall a bit more mint than used. Canada only goes up to 1967, but there are plenty of better early issues along with a fair amount of provinces. What defines this lot though is the enormous amount of 20-century among the Caribbean nations. Anguilla, Antigua, Barbuda, British Guiana (Guyana), Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts-Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Trinidad & Tobago all have a copious amount of stamps into the late 80's.

360   imageBritish Europe, Mint & Used Collection, 1841-2000. Mounted on Minkus pages, we begin with Great Britain (1841-2000), the country that started it all! Here we find a very impressive selection of classics from Queen Victoria on through to King George V. Homemade pages were created to accommodate plate varieties, and there are quite a few including over 60 for #33 alone. Condition does vary among the early issues but are for the most part fine. The collection as a whole is very well-filled and mostly used, with the exception of the 80's, which is almost entirely mint. Included with Great Britain are a selection of regionals as well as offices in Africa, China, Morocco and the Turkish Empire. Moving on to the Channel Islands, both Guernsey (1958-2000) and Jersey (1943-2000) are very well-filled throughout and comprised of mostly mint. Alderney (1983-2000), on the other hand, is entirely mint and looks complete. Isle of Man (1958-2000) too is fairly well-filled and mostly mint. Gibraltar (1886-1998) is entirely mint and almost complete from 1991-98. Malta (1885-2000) is a fairly even mix of mint and used, as is Cyprus (1894-2000) until the early 90's, which from then on is all mint. The Cyprus collection is nearly complete after WWII and also includes a darn near complete collection of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (1975-2015). Mostly used until 1980, it is entirely mint afterwards and runs all the way to 2015! Ireland (1922-2000) is also included in this lot and is a mix of mint and used until 1996 and almost all mint thereafter., Fine to Very Fine with the exception of some 19th-century Britain.

Classics are nothing to write home about, but that's not what this lot is about. Both the Australia and New Zealand collections are very well-filled throughout, but from the early 80's until 2000, they are almost entirely mint and carry enormous face value. Australia also features a mostly mint A.A.T. collection, Christmas Island very nearly complete and mostly mint, a very well-filled Papua New Guinea collection of which the majority are mint, a 50/50 mint and used Norfolk Island, a predominantly mint Cocos (Keeling) Islands collection which looks complete, and a sampling of Australian states.
