557   imageFrance, "Mon Dieu!" Mostly Mint Collection, 1849-2000, If I were a collector of France, I would want my collection to look like this; a very nearly complete collection in five hingeless Lighthouse albums, mostly used until 1900, then virtually all mint from then on. Extras abound with added pages for miniature sheets and booklets, the latter of which are often in duplication so that both sides can be viewed simultaneously. Variants also added, like Scott-unlisted imperf margin copies of #669 & C49 (Y&T 918 & 50a respectively). Of the long line of premium material, here are some of the best as mounted: used 1-3, 6-7, 9, 12-21 (21 with cert), 29-37, 38-48, 64, 66-70, 72-76, 79, 83, 96, 126, 226, 414 and mint 22, 77, 108, 109-19, 123, 127-32, 133-37, 197, 226b, 241, 246, 294, 296-97, 299, 302, 304, 329, 342-47, 348, B3-10, B11, B12-19, B20-23, B27, B28-30, B31-33, B34, B35-37, B38, B39-41, B42-43, B66-67, B157a, B274a, B282a, B291a, B301a, B309a, B318a, C1-2 (with certs), C8-14, C15, and so on. You will find stamps after 1935 showing signs of being previously hinged, but the vast majority appear to be on the very light side. An additional album of around 75 covers, mostly FDCs, and a binder filled with duplicates, as well as some revenues, also accompanies this lot. Condition will vary early on, but generally Fine to Very Fine, the first volume is available online for your viewing enjoyment! Shipping charges apply - weight 43.8 lbs. (Video for this lot) (Image)

565   imageFrance, "French New Wave" Mostly Mint Collection, 1862-2020, In three pristine Scott Specialty albums, a mix of both mint & used up until 1960 and then virtually all mint thereafter.

But the main value here is a 60-year, highly complete run of modern mint from 1960-2020 with huge aggregate face value. Have a look at the online video, and you'll see what we mean. Some condition issues early on, but generally Fine to Very Fine. Shipping charges apply - weight 32 lbs. (Video for this lot) (Image)

566   imageFrance, "Modern Art" Mostly Modern Mint Collection, 1849-2003, The main collection here is a six-volume set of like-new, hingeless Davo albums, particularly strong in the modern era. All used until the late 1930s, but from then on almost all mint with a high level of completeness. Better include #388, 400-14, 475-76H, B83, B86-89A, B93, B147a, B157a, B249-54, B294-99, C22, C29-32. Classics are sorely lacking, but this is remedied by a secondary collection in a Schaubek album. Perhaps the collector never got around to transferring them over, but a much better selection in this one, including a lot more mint, duplicating the previous collection up to 1975. In addition, a binder with about 120 modern French imperfs, beginning with the Mercury definitives from 1938 all the way to the Delacroix Liberty series from the 1980s. Overall some very high catalogue value, and generally Fine to Very Fine, a portion of this collection is viewable online. Shipping charges apply - weight 37 lbs.

567   imageFrance, Folded Letters & Postal History Cover & Card Accumulation, 1800-1940s, over 800 covers housed in two boxes including a mounted collection in two volumes and three slender glassine organizers with documents, some with Revenues and other ancillary material. The first box has 400 covers of which over 100 are stampless folded letters from the early 1800s to the 1850s, mostly domestic with a few sent to Italy and England. The remaining 300 in this box are mostly domestic 1850-70s perforated and imperforate 10c & 20c Cérès and Napoléon issues including about 30 early Mourning Covers. The two volumes with the mounted collections have about 170 covers and cards which are mostly 1850-70s imperforate and imperforate Cérès and Napoléon issues with better multiple frankings. One of the volumes has Sage and Sower types mostly on postal cards and works its way into WWI stationery items with some WWII POW covers. The remaining box has over 250 items and runs from Sage and Sower types to modern with some later French Colonies and Monaco covers. This group includes WWI and WWII Censored, Registered and Express usages, multiples, Mourning Covers, TPO cancels, postal cards and some higher-franking Airmail covers. There is considerable cancel variety in all parts of this lot. There are also some less common destinations such as Australia for the more modern material. The condition is generally Fine to Very Fine with an occasional off-quality item as is to be expected in this type of lot. An interesting lot that should provide hours of sorting for an avid French Postal History enthusiast, as well as considerable value for an eBay seller who knows how to market this kind of material.
