Lot 1472

Fiume. ★★/⊙. Comprehensive collection mint and used with as far as we can see virtual completion of basic stamps, as well as coloured and white numerals and some very good handstamps of the first o/ps on Hungary. The section of the 1918 issues with several dozen stamps, then follows the pictorial types 1919 again with a high degree of specialisation, through to the franc overprints and the d’Annunzio, as well as the Gordian knot overprint types and the Governo Provisorio overprints and yet further back-of-the-book with extensive postage dues, through to 1921, as well as Arbe and Veglia types with expertisation, etc. There is not much more needed to make this complete, the catalogue value will easily run into five figures in euro.
