I just got this today and it looks pretty good. It's supposed to have 32,000 stamps and 168 complete countries.





OK Just showing off, but one of the interesting things about this collection is that the US section is complete even all that back of book. I've never seen this before.








Now the WW is pretty good too;












Cape Juby still is elusive and some other empty spots look pretty easy but that's collecting.

Impressive. In addition to the large number of stamps, exceptionally clean as these albums go.

I think I got a great deal on it, I was surprised it even came with slip cases and it is very clean. The only drawback is that it is a 1955 printing and the pages are thin and there are a lot countries printed back to back.

I find the blank spaces interesting, with many of them looking pretty easy to me. If folks are interested I will show a few of these.

Very nice Ken!

Other than the US collection, that would probably go piecemeal, are you going to dispose of this on the 'Bay by country?

Just asking.

That's what I do. I'll break it up into about 250 lots and sell it over the next 4 months. I've thought about it and I'm going to sell the US by section ie. Regular, Cut Square, revenues etc.

Looks like a nice clean collection. Someone was a good caretaker.

Clean and meticulous. So many full or nearly-full pages, the aspirational goal of every philatelist.

What a stunning collection!

I'd love to get something like this someday--imagine the feeling of satisfaction one would get filling in the rest of the empty spaces, and the joy of showing such an album to another collector.

I was thinking the same thing Ursa. I'm surprised there hasn't been an offer to buy the album intact!
