What makes a passport outstanding? I guess every collector will gives you a different answer but look at these pictures… These collectibles are not only rare and in good condition but also from historical importance. Enjoy!
By the way…the King’s Messenger Passport is NOT a diplomatic passport – the holder does not have diplomatic status even you can read “Courier Diplomatique” in French on it’s cover. ( Source: Martin Lloyd, The Passport. The History of Man’s Most Travelled Document. Page 192, ISBN 0-7509-2964-2)
