Fiji 2006-2014 "Small Birds" surcharges. A detailed study giving SG & Scott Cat. numbers & changes where appropriate plus purchase prices & catalogue vals for each. Comments provided for flaws, inverted surcharges, double ovpts, skewing, large "XX" instead of small, spacing varieties, misplaced ovpts, missing numerals, etc. Full listing can be supplied on request. Total itemised cost price over $6760. If there is a more comprehensive study of these issues in existence, we would be surprised. The collection is on Hagners with catalogue numbers indicated, accompanied by a photocopy of the relevant part of SG Western Pacific 2014 catalogue & extract from Pacifica Vol. 47 "Fiji - The Definitive Overprints - The Latest Update" from Bryan Jones, well-illustrated with valuable commentary. There are 524 ovpts, some in pairs, blocks or larger multiples plus 2007 cover & the original (i.e. not overprinted) set of 17. Astounding!
