LAOS, 1978-1982, collection of stamps and covers, neatly mounted on pages in one album, and well annotated (in German). Stamps include many sets both perf and imperf, also souvenir sheets, with much topical interest. The main value however is in the numerous postally used covers (express and registered) to Germany – in this period postally used examples of these issues are very scarce! A good lot for the collector of Asian material, generally F.-V.F. Est. 1,000 – 1,500 CHF (via Philasearch.com: 15. Harmers Auction SA – Los 9267-A12-1543)
