Highlights include: Full panes of four different IWW Assessment and Drive stamps, Three different large IWW poster stamps, a 1907 postally used envelope with a large IWW L. U.

There are a number of exceptionally scarce items in this collection, and it would take years to assemble one that is comparable.
