I don't know if other people feel the same but I often marvel at older collections like this and wonder at what point in time the collecting was at its most avid, how many collectors owned it and built on it, how much of it was bought during any one stamps period of issue (as in did the owner go to the post office, have friends abroad, the like). I didn't see any kind of write up in the description, maybe I missed something, but still fun to ponder

Wow ! The only thing that makes my skin crawl is the possibility that the new owner might take this philatelic masterpiece apart...

It'll probably be a dealer who will take it to one show as a collection then decide he'd be better off making money by taking it apart. The heathens…

There are so many stamps that you never see like the "cotton reels". Simply amazing. The romantic side of me hopes beyond hope that it stays intact but the pragmatist believes that it will be broken up.

Just an incredible snapshot of what collecting was back in the beginning. Did they have an inkling of how special some of the stamps would one day become?

At that price it will be unusual that someone would want to park away some 150,000 pounds into a album . Most likely a few dealers are going to scan the pictures and start to figure out what it can be resold for .My thinking is that it will be taken apart by a smaller auction firm .

Very, very, very few collections are purchased to keep intact and build upon. This one is no different even if it is selling for a high end price. Perhaps some tech industry individual will buy it with the intent to add to it.

While a romantic old relic, one just possesses stamps as a the caretaker until they move onward to the next caretaker or caretakers. Here due to the unusual item it is, a full pictorial or video of all pages filed in a philatelic library would be a worthy undertaking in my opinion.

Guaranteed to be broken up, unless a museum buys it.

How many smaller auctions have L150k plus the juice available?

It's almost a given that this will be taken apart.

As for a small auction house buying it, it makes sense, but they're going to need somebody's personal collateral. I don't expect smaller auction houses to have it themselves. I'd put up the house for the loan after inspection, if I had a house.

There are dealers and collectors who have the funds, and who might help an auction house that they know well for a percentage or a few choice items. Such things have happened before.

I can almost see Ferrari lifting an eyebrow at this one. I was hoping to see a page of early US too, maybe I missed it. I did see the private US stamps. The certificates probably make quite a pile too. I also wonder how on earth did this album stay intact for this long. What's the latest stamp in this thing?

No way to know how many of those locals are genuine. Reprints and forgeries go way back, not to defraud anyone in those days, but to fill album spaces for items that were already scarce or rare. Filling every space was how people collected at the time.

Realized EUR 210,000.

Too bad there isn't the Vintage Reproductions equivalent of a Lallier album! Filling it wouldn't be cheap, but I wouldn't mind putting together one with reprints, if only for the 'look'...
