I can only afford the PDF. NSK is in the running for understatement of the year for using "above average quality"; this is some truly nice stuff without plundering the Royal collection.

What bothers me (what doesn't?) is "ex Shields" placed after every lot. How about "this stamp may present a choking hasard for children under age 6"?

What a cracking selection of stamps - however would need a lottery win to purchase any of them, probably followed by divorce
