Product Description


Nice group of 27 covers and postcards, all mounted and neatly annotated on exhibit pages, all featuring 1c and 2c Washington Franklin stamps.  Noted pre-Nazi swastika-related postcard (obviously using its earlier "lucky star" intent,) advertising covers (including color Campbell Bros. Circus), censored covers from Shanghai China, others mailed from St. Thomas, Dominican Republic, etc., AAM #135 government flight cover, Registered Mail usage, 1921 Xmas seal tied w/ 1c W/F to post card, a neat fancy cancel, WWI censored mail, bisects (2c x 2 usages,) RPO, Guam to Honolulu, several ship covers, etc. 

Very nice group, most FVF or better, a number of interesting usages that would make for a very nice start to an exhibit.  Many still have the original lot cards & selling prices tucked behind the pages (most of these purchased in the 1970’s, generally costing $20-$50 each at the time, but would retail at quite a bit more today.)  Estimated retail value: $1,000-$1,500

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:
