Next in line was a fine collection of British Asia containing:

—Burma during KG6 reign. Just about complete, although my stock was already excellent.

—Ceylon from 1927-1971 with hardly any gaps. It made a big difference to my range among the more recent issues plus odd earlier items.

—Maldives. This covered 1909-61 although I am still double-checking the earlier issues. Whenever I obtain the more modern stamps, they go quickly.

—Pakistan. An excellent collection from 1947-71 which was just about complete with perf varieties etc. The same for the Officials.

—Bahawalpur. Apart from just a few of the first set, this lot was also comprehensive for stamps and Officials.
