The World Traveller Collection
The World Traveler Collection was formed over a period of 60 years by a father and his son. They started with the G.B. Penny Black and ended in 1981. In that time period there are approximately 260,000 major Scott Catalogue listings and another 33,000 Scott-listed varieties, such as overprint errors, color variations, imperforates, and others. The World Traveler Collection contains all but about 1,600 major listings, making it over 99% complete. This first auction contains a wide variety of issues from many countries. Many of the stamps are rarely offered at auction. All are either signed or accompanied by certificates.
