Product Description


Box with 12 different Scott catalogs, most all US Specialized (unless otherwise noted in the list that follows).  Includes 1923 (worldwide), 1928 (worldwide), 1945, 1947, 1967, 1976, 1980, 1982, 1990, 1992, 2000 (worldwide “Classic” 1840-1940 catalog), 2008.   Scott started listing essays in 1992, so you’ll get several catalogs that include those.  Also, the 2008 Specialized is where they broke the 1851-1857 3c stamps into different “major” listings (10, 10A, 11, 11A, 25, 25A, 26, 26A) and it contains a nice article explaining the rational with illustrations that you might find interesting (and the 2008 prices are recent enough to still be useful – this catalog sold recently on eBay for $35 including shipping.)  The 2000 “Classic” is also still very worthwhile and has sold recently on eBay for $19Just for laughs, the 1923 Scott edition prices the 5c 1847 at $5 used, the $5 Columbian mint at $12 and a mint Jamestown set at $0.26.  Ah, the good old days!  The early editions have faults (loose pages, spine problems, etc.) but the others are generally Fine or better.  My price for all 12 catalogs includes shipping to US addresses.  Have a little fun looking at the old prices and playing the “What if?” game…

Extension/Expertization Policy

Expertization/Extension Policy

Any uncertified (single) stamp that I sell may be placed on "extension" while a certificate of expertization is obtained. In addition, stamps with existing certificates issued prior to January 1, 2015 may be placed on extension for a new certificate. Individual stamps from a larger lot may not be placed on extension, unless prior approval has been obtained. The following procedure must be followed for all extensions:

  • All lots must be paid for in advance and the lot will ship once payment clears. Upon receipt, please examine the item. If you agree with my description but want a certificate, then...
  • You must notify me (preferably at time of purchase) that you are requesting a certificate and we must agree on a 3rd party service (APEX, PF, PSAG and PSE are acceptable) to do the certification. This notification must occur within 7 days of receipt but in no event later than 30 days from the purchase date. The item must be submitted within 7 days of receipt, but in no event later than 30 days from the sale.
  • You submit the item as the rightful owner and pay any certification and postage costs required at that time.
  • If the item comes back with an opinion stating "not genuine", with a different identification (different Scott number), or with faults not originally described, you may return the lot and I will reimburse your purchase price plus the cost of the certificate (up to 20% of the purchase price or $100, whichever is lower). The stamp must not be marked in any way, and must be returned in the original condition (not encapsulated). Express service premiums are not reimbursable. Certificate costs are not refundable if the service cannot render an opinion, or if a graded certificate disagrees with any statement regarding grade or estimated grade.
  • Upon receipt of the returned stamp and certificate, I will credit your account (as defined in (4) above) within 24 hours. You can leave the money on account to apply toward future purchases, or request a refund, in which case funds will be sent within 2 business days.

The following expertization services are acceptable:
