Product Description


Remainder of a valuable estate, approximately 400 items in glassines, on original auction cards, dealer cards, etc, all stuffed into an old “Buster Brown” shoebox.  Appears to be stuff that never made it into the album, but many worthwhile and valuable items are present including (mint) Scott 230-238, 294-299 (x2 sets plus extras, one of the sets still on the original Siegel sales card,), 323-327 (with extra 327), 330 block of 4 w/ plate # and imprint (bottom 2 stamps NH, on Siegel card,) 343-347 pairs plus more Washington Franklins (unchecked but some potentially valuable items there so look closely,) matched set of Scott 611 arrow blocks (still on the original Harmer’s auction card,) VF+ MNH 616 plate block, etc.  Some scattered used in the earlies with a few early imperfs (including a 1c imperforate strip of 3 w/ blue cancel plus another pair,) 134, 137 w/ fancy hollow star cancel, 229, Q1-Q12 (x3 sets,) etc.

Lots of material in the $25-$500+ range (most of the value is in mint items,) and even the “cheap” stuff sometimes turns out better (for instance, while looking at what I thought was a common 319 MNH plate strip of 3, I noticed that was the scarce 2c type II scarlet – Scott 319Fk, est CV $600++.)  If you’re the lucky owner, please check everything here carefully – much of what was set aside seems to be put aside for a reason... 

I noticed some faults, but the lot is overall pretty clean with much FVF or better and some VF++ noted.   Great unpicked lot with lots of upside potential for the eBay/BidStart seller or dealer looking to add to better Scott numbers to their stock at a wholesale price.

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:
