Some off-paper stamps have hinge evidence suggesting that they had been removed from album pages, and as expected in a mixture of 5000 stamps, there will be considerable duplication. Most of the pre-1960 Danish stamps are listed in Scott at 25 to 50 cents each, but many stamps in the dollar range are noted in this mixture as well (e.g., #123 @ $6.50 and #247 @ $4). Undoubtedly there will be many die varieties and color variants among these stamps, making this mixture a potential treasure trove and hours of fun and study for the buyer, also an excellent source of pre-1950 Danish stamps for any dealer looking to replenish Danish stock. Estimated Scott CV exceeds $1750, but this lot is being offered as is at a cheap starting bid of ½ cent per stamp. EMV = $100, Starting bid = $25.

The remaining seven lots will be offered in the next SCC Library auction. The seven lots described here will be also offered as a combined single lot (#75C) at the end of the lot descriptions. This combined lot will be sold to its high bidder at one increment over the combined high bids for the seven individual lots provided that the high bid for this combined lot exceeds the sum of the high bids for the seven individual lots. The lot descriptions are those of the donor who used Scott 2018 and Facit 2017 values and numbers as identifiers, and, wherever applicable, presented specialized detailed information for each of the booklets. Note that Facit differentiates between the varieties for each booklet issue and places premiums on some, but Scott does not; consequently, Scott values tend to be lower, but Facit values are more indicative of current market prices.
