    The second series (1962-1974),starting with post #22,contains
    52 stamps with a total cat.-value (SAKURA) of Yen 2730.-.
    My best guess is,that trade will ask for about 50 % cat.-value.

    The first series (1936-1956) is very much more expensive.
    Same is true for the souvenir sheets issued 1938-1956.

    "just for fun" I added up the cat-values of the National Park Series
    according to SAKURA.It can be easily done,because SAKURA lists them
    in their own category,apart from commemoratives,definitives etc.
    2nd series 1962 - 1974 Yen 2730.- = US $ 25.61
    1st series 1936 - 1956 Yen 135.650.- = US $ 1272.57
    Souvenir sheets 1938 - 1956 Yen 342.500 = US $ 3213.10

    So US $ 800.- for all stamps (excl.the s.s.) would be slightly
    more than 60 % cat.
    Somewhat wily sounds the 10 % discount for payment in Euro,
    as € 1.- is equivalent slightly more than US $ 1.20.
