31361 Netherlands Indies covers 1880-1950.
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.
