FIUME COLLECTION
Lot Symbol CatNo. Lot Description CV or Estimate
394 og/nhO Fiume important and massive mint and used collection/accumulation in two large stock books, the first is devoted to the normal issues and contains over 2,300 stamps, the collection is complete for all of the stamps that were issued by this country starting with overprinted Hungarian stamps of 1918, these come with both machine typographed overprints and handstamps, then the complete range of printed designs that often come in different printings, plus the numerous surcharges and overprints that were later applied to them, in addition to the regular postal issues all the semi-postals, special delivery, postage dues and newspapers are collected in the same way and are complete for all issues, the normal pattern of collecting in this volume is usually from five or six mint singles up to a dozen or more of each value and sometimes including blocks of four, there are usually two or three used values and some times more including being tied to piece, often the duplication of mint and used shows shades and different printings, there are also over 20 covers that went through the mail and are often registered, the second volume is devoted to the varieties of the various issues and the range of these varieties is great, this volume contains over 575 singles and multiples, we note overprint varieties with inverted and double overprints plus type varieties, etc., the basic stamps have printing errors such as double impressions and we even note an error of color of the 1923 3L in the bister brown color of the 5L, the perforation varieties are numerous including some rather good sized blocks, we note completely imperforate, imperforate between pairs as well as larger strips, plus offsets of the designs and the overprints and much more, condition varies slightly as would be expected on such a large holding, but overall the condition is quite clean with the vast majority being o.g. or used, never hinged will be found throughout, though most is hinged and often there are h.r. present, mostly fine-very fine; Fiume is an interesting and difficult collecting area, we have kept this fantastic collection together as one lot to allow the buyers to sift through and separate the wheat from the chaff, if all were genuine this lot would catalog a significant sum, but given the nature of this collecting area it is certain that not everything is genuine, yet it is also certain that there is much that is genuine and there are genuine varieties that are highly desirable and very rare; this collection demands careful examination which we expect will prove our estimate to be quite conservative.
