31360 Netherlands covers 1852-1960.
This holding belies the country’s small size; the 5000+ (+) covers, postal stationery items (of all descriptions) and postcards show the Low Countries still hold writing dear; the earliest items included are several stampless items with handstamped fees, with a full range of philatelic usages: definitives and commemoratives, Semi-Postals, Airs, Dues, Express and Officials; Parcel Post receipts, Bahnpost cancels, Registered covers, Feldpost items, postal counterfoils/receipts for mailing, Censors, a Rocket Mail cover (!), etc., etc.; while most items run 1880s on, we note a First Issue 10c on cover sent Breda to ‘s-Hertogenbosch, several covers bearing the perforated Second Issues, and more; exceptionally clean throughout, Fine to Very Fine, don’t go Dutch on this one—you’ll want it all for yourself.
