GREAT BRITAIN – EXCEPTIONAL PREMIUM COLLECTION – This fantastic collection is a very fitting tribute to the cradle of philately presented inside a pristine Lighthouse album! The album goes way beyond listing all major varieties, diving deep into the world of minor shades….and the collector filled practically every single one and then some replacing singles with pairs, or parking extra unlisted varieties next to most obscure ($$$$) that are already settled in their allocated spots! The collection would command astronomic catalog value, just one page within the 19th century portion boasts such philatelic unicorns like #57, 57a, 74-75, 90-92, 90a, and even 93, 93a! Furthermore just a few page flicks further one will come across £1 from 1884 (#110) right next to #123, and, a  few pages down, even frame broken varieties #123a, 124a! The collection is simply an awe-inspiring parade of hard-to-find philatelic gems from the very beginning, as the very first set of Penny Black and its 2p Blue big sister are both presented in multitude of shades, similarly #5 can be observed as green, pale green, and deep green – all with massive corners intact, same for #6 10 pence, and even #7 6p is proudly displayed as red violet, dull violet, and deep violet! There is a whole page just showing Maltese Cross cancelations, and several pages packed with practically every variety of #33, well besides Plate 77, because…well just because. Furthermore, the collector didn’t just fill spaces, most examples are of very high grade, and the collection just flows well into the 1980s, needless to say packed with all the modern varieties like phosphorous versions from the midcentury period, and more! Simply stunning choice collection packed with value! While it would be a shame to break this marvel up, it offers tremendous resale potential! Gen. VERY FINE, mint og (We photographed only early portion of the collection running to 1960s, as second half is virtually complete)
