lot # 1211 - Overseas Chile
1853/1900: Interesting accumulation of classic and semi classic issues, beginning with over 140 Columbus Heads, including many fine to very fine four margin copies. There are over ten 5c stamps on blued paper from the first Perkins Bacon prints, two 10c diagonal bisects on piece and a whole range of later local prints, many with signs of significant plate wear. The subsequent issues are also well represented, with used condition being the prodominant state of preservation. The condition is as is usual for such early material somewhat mixed, but nonetheless with many useful stamps contained. A pleasing lot for the specialist.
