Lot 1657

Turkey. ★/⊙. Several hundred stamps, mint and used, from the Tughra types imperf onwards. Duloz types of 1865/76 very strong – some with very challenging Ottoman pmks to decipher with well over 200 examples and only a few categorized. Then the Crescent types with well over 300 examples, slightly more classified than the Duloz, still in need of much research. The larger Arms types follow, 1892 onwards through to the scarce newspaper types overprint imprimé, among the 200 plus stamps with and without overprints. Then the Thessaly issues, seem all genuine to us, through to the local unlisted types. A wonderful range of material that will thrill the specialist with many discoveries, especially on the used.
