Background

This is a huge collection of stamps with the arms of countries and families, issued around 1900-1920. The total number is not known, the largest collection I have seen on offer had 3800 stamps. The stamps were issued in sheets, which were numbered, but the stamps itself were not numbered.

I have no idea how these stamps could be collected.

The sheets were not always properly perforated, resulting in a number of different formats for the stamps. The actual format should be 4x5.5 cm, but can differ up to 1 cm in width.

The stamps could be glued on pages, which were then kept in boxes, see image above. I have no idea whether an index was issued.
