Indonesia 1958-1985 FDC's accumulation. From April 1976 to April 1985 all covers have a printed sequence number from 23 to 169 with all numbers complete. Prior to No. 23 there is a brown, unnumbered range of official PO FDC's from 9th April 1958 to 10th Nov 1973 (44). Many of the covers have a "Philately Bulletin" insert. From the "Bulletin", FDC of 20th Dec 1968, the printing details of each stamp are given incl the quantity of each stamp issued. Surprisingly the number of each stamp issued is very low ranging from 800,000 to 2 million. This helps to explain the steady SG cat. value of these issues. One also has to ask how few in number of each FDC were produced? High cat. val for the used stamps. Cond of unnumbered covers is fair to fine. Most "numbered" covers are unaddressed & in very good to very fine cond. (190+)
