Ecuador
LotNo. Symbol CatNo. Lot Description
407   imageEcuador, The ¡Ay Caramba! Collection, 1865-2000. OK, for the record, I am not a collector of Ecuador but I couldn't help but get blown away by this fantastic and in-depth collection. In six Scott Specialty albums, the collection is strong throughout, many additional pages added for variants, of which many are not listed in Scott or Michel, and not just for the classics but into the modern era as well. We have imperf varieties, such as a strip of 5 of #27, a great deal of inverted and double overprints/surcharges, specimens of 199, 200, 203, 205, 207, 211, 212, a good selection of semi-officials only listed in Sanabria, as well as meaningful covers interspersed throughout. One of the volumes deals strictly with B-O-B and again there is no shortage of extras, such as the three surcharge varieties of C3 only found in Sanabria, as well as the brown & red variety of 237 (Sanabria 313a), scores of imperfs through the 60's & 70's as well as varieties the collector himself could not identify. And from here, the collection gets even more interesting; the next binder I opened contained proofs and essays, among them a set of 8 Consular Service India proofs, die proofs of 398-99, 430-32, 558, C91-92, C232, an unfinished die proof of C124, C261 die proof without the overprint, a proof of Scott type AP17 with no denomination and a 1937 set of four essays of Sanabria EB type. There were also stocksheets loaded with essays of the 1936 triangular airmail in three colors and denominations with and without the "1939" overprint, some in singles but mostly tête-bêche pairs, some imperforate. Also, Columbus at Ferdinand & Isabella's Court, most with "1939" overprint, but again imperf varieties, misperfs and also without denomination. Two of the Scott volumes are dedicated to FDCs with hundreds from 1936-1999 and another binder is filled with Special Event covers and First Flights. In addition to a binder filled with over 100 unused postal cards, there is an additional one with older unused cut squares, envelope entires and postal cards, many from the 19th century. You'll also find a specialized collection of the 1949 Roosevelt Airmail Officials only mentioned in Scott. There's the original set (Sanabria 260-64) along with a multitude of overprints from the various government ministries, a sheet of 25 of Sanabria 267 and sheetlets of 4 of 279-80 & 283-84 (9 sets each) including over 20 different covers. There's also stocksheets with duplicates and purchased items still in dealer cards and a small Galapagos collection on a dozen covers along with nearly 200 other stray covers. I never thought I would collect Ecuador, but it's collections like this that make me think again! Fine to Very Fine, Portions of collection viewable online. Shipping charges apply - weight 48 lbs.
