OK, well I stepped in it again! I specifically told myself, I was NOT going to buy any more large collections/accumulations.

The gentleman I bought this batch from, this weekend, had been accumulating for quite a while, but never organized much. He sort of specialized in Germany, so there will be a good amount of that in here. Everything else is just as disorganized as the collection I mentioned at the beginning of this thread. Just started sorting through it yesterday, but what I am noticing is that there is much more to this batch than what he had photographed for the sale, which was mainly the German stuff, and some U.S.
Much of this are pages from dismantled album purchases, where sorted out the German items and piled up the rest. There are also stock books, glassines, envelopes full and loose stamps as well. Also found several old time approval books, with the information and prices written in fountain pen. I'm sure they were the cheap stamps of the day and are still cheap today, but there is much that I do not have.

Unlike the collection at the beginning of this thread, which I had already sorted out by country when I started this, I will be able to post updates form this collection as I sort it out.

Since my scanner is upstairs and my stamp arena is downstairs, I will take impromptu photos, with my phone, of interesting (at least to me) that I find as I do my sorting, and post them here. All comments are welcome on any of them. These may not be expensive items, just things I like.

Here are a few things I found in tonight's sorting session.




So, if you see me mention "Accumulation 2.0", this is the collection I am referring to.

BTW, I am still working on Morocco, as I sort this batch.

That will keep you busy for awhile!

Just catching up with your posts, and greatly enjoying seeing your French Morocco. One of my favourite countries, and probably my strongest individual country collection, after Canada. Only missing 14 stamps for a complete mint collection, although a half dozen of those are beyond my per stamp budget.

gmot - Thank you! I actually have a few more scans of French Morocco to share.

Accumulation 2.0!
Here are a few more items I found while sorting. Comments welcome.

I'm sure this is a cheap U.S. stamp, but I thought it was pretty with the large margins.


Also found what could be a philtelic "tragedy". At first I thought these 2 were on a piece of the original envelope, but then realized there are 2 different cancels and nothing on the paper. Someone "attached" these to a piece of paper with something other than a hinge. Hopefully I won't destroy them trying to soak them off.


Not sure if the information on the tag is accurate, as I haven't looked it up yet, but if it is I can't say that I haven't seen modern-ish German stamps with CV's like that.

Most German stamps from 1945 up to the mid-1950s have pretty high catalog values (comparatively), especially MNH or postally used.

In my opinion there is not enough of the cancel to qualify for the Used catalog price. It's also NH?

Does "used NH" mean CTO?

It just means that the stamp has never been hinged (mounted).

Of course!
But "used never hinged" ? If your stamp is postally used what's the matter if it's hinged or not?

Don't some German collectors like to keep the gum of CTOs intact (not sure whether this is CTO or not)?

Actually, it has been hinged and has no gum.
