Per the collector, 250 covers and stationeries in all; there’s a bit of everything here, from personal and business correspondence to Military stationery, POW items and covers to the Red Cross in Switzerland; note stationery of all descriptions, some mint with printing varieties/plate flaws noted; stampless, Censored with various handstamps/signatures, Registered, Officials, etc.; mint and used POW cards, mint and used Japanese Military postal cards (one franked by Japan 7s Diamond Mountains), a postal card addressed to a Marine Camp, BMA overprints with unoverprinted Straits Settlements issues, Sumatra/”T” overprinted Queens, overprinted East Indies Feldpost cards mint, commemorative cancels…even an identity card (!); most all used domestically, making for interesting origin-destination combinations; generally fresh and sound, Fine to Very Fine with better, a fascinating holding of this material, not often encountered (especially in quantity).
Over 2000 items in total by our estimate, with the full range of postal life of the colony on display; note Red Cross covers, Censors from WWII and WWI, “On Active Service” letter sheets, Christmas/New Year cards, Officials, Airs, etc.; note “RIS”, “JAVA” and “Indonesia” overprints, First Flight Covers, an incoming cover from Burma, meters, multiple franking covers, several 1890s items addressed in Japanese (Chinese?), company chops, etc.; much postal stationery, both East Indies and Japanese Occupation, mint and used, and in quantity (variety hunters take note!), with normal, uprated and revalued to be had; a wide range of origins and destinations, both domestic and foreign; Williams and Wilhelminas predominate the frankings, but enough commemoratives, Semi-Postals and Airs to make this lot just that bit more interesting; unsurprisingly, some toning occurs, but overall the items are presentable and clean, Fine to Very Fine or better, a must-see, as this material is seldom offered in such quantity.
Over 400 in total, the majority of which are commercial covers, with First Days, First Flights, Maximum Cards, Expo cards and country-related foreign items included as well; nearly half are from China (PRC or Taiwan), with the other half spread out over Afghanistan, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam; most to Europe (though we note several local PRC covers), thus many Airmail and/or Registered usages; majority of items run from the 1970s-90s, with Afghan covers dating from the 1950s; Japan including a colorful five-stamp franking from 1951, vended labels from numerous cities from the 1970s and ’80s (unused, several looking to be lottery-type items), an Akihito Investiture maximum card, and a ship-themed, “Raw Silk” advertising card of Masuzawa Seishi; South Korea mostly from the 1960s, with numerous First Days, including 1958 and 1960 Christmas/New Year stamps plus a number of souvenir sheets from the period; Thailand with colorful frankings and computer-vended labels; Vietnam mostly 1960s, with a real photo 1957 postcard of Angkor and even a 1907 French Indochina-franked postcard; China includes a “Sea Mail” handstamped cover, several Dues markings (“T” and “Taxe Perçue” chops), a slew of maximum cards (mostly of Taiwan commemoratives of the 1970s), unmailed picture post cards of Xi’an, etc., etc.; good condition throughout, Fine to Very Fine, some uncommon material included
