Note to the above.
I was contacted by the high bidder, who provided information on why he
bid at this premium level. Apparently not only was there the
cancel that I observed, but a bunch of other fascinating things that
true specialists would appreciate. He writes "There were many
things about this lot that I found interesting - Numerous nice SOTN red
cancels, one brown cancel, several straight (boxed, unboxed, and
manuscript) line cancels (including the one you mentioned above
" Holm"), but my main reason for the high bid - two
examples of Postal Fraud (re-used stamps). The fact that this lot
came from the Faberge collection did not hurt either." I'm
chagrined about overlooking the Faberge reference, but suspect either he
recognised the stamps or discovered this via direct communication with
the seller, because I don't think it was referred to in the auction.
