ISRAEL - 1948 PARACHUTISTS - WONDERFUL SPECIALIZED COLLECTION. A spectacular collection of 50 different never hinged mint complete sets (39 of which are the intact se-tenant strips), includes all the Bale listed sets plus a wide (possibly complete) showing of the additional sets as listed by the old Mosden catalogue, all variously handstamped at Tel Aviv or Haifa, occasionally with additional surcharging, the sets themselves in black, blue, olive or brown. A wonderful collection of this atmospheric set which depicts seven Jews who each lost their lives in WWII parachuting behind enemy lines. This is by far the most comprehensive collection of this important interim stamp issue we have seen offered, with each set expertly identified. Highly recommended (50 sets = 350 stamps)
