  • Lot# : 2564 Israel

    1948/1984: Highly specialised collection "ISRAEL" in 24 Volumes on self designed pages, unused, used and on cover. The collector has focussed on accumulating TABs, Plate Blocks, First Day Covers and commercial covers, Gutter pairs, perforation and other varieties, where they can be found. The first issue "1948 OLD COINS" (Gi. 1/9 and D10/14) alone takes up an entire album, containing the unused set with full TAB, as well as a set without TAB both used and unused, varieties and covers including many registered. The 1948 (5709) "New Year" comes with gutter pairs, mint, used and on covers, including a fine "First Day"  from "TEL AVIV" to "VIENNA", TABs  from right and "left" sheet margin. Later issues are also well represented, including many highly catalogued TABs, eg. the 1952 1000 pr. blue "State Coat of Arms" (Gi. 64a) twice unused with TAB. The condition is generally very good, odd early hinged but even there mainly unmounted.
