Product Description


Accumulation of approximately 400 3c 1851-1857 stamps (300 of which are imperforate Scott 10/11, the remainder of which are perforated Scott 25/26.)  Loose and currently in glassines, some already plated, with a “basic” sorting already accomplished but much work ahead. 

I noted at least 10-15 Scott 10’s, a few Scott 11 multiples (pairs, a few strips of 3.) The perforated stamps total around 100 and include some 25’s, better 26’s like a scarce block of 4 (with March 1861 Texas cancel – a desirable item!,) captured imprint, great EFO misperf with “THREE CENTS” label at top, etc.  Largely unchecked for plate varieties, positions, shades, cancels, etc. so make sure you take a close look if you’re the lucky buyer. 

I've included some higher resolution scans below (click on each thumbnails) so you can take a close look before you buy.

2013 Scott catalog value approximately $12,000.

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, 2011 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:
