Product Description


Nice mint & used back-of-book collection in old ratty Scott album.  Sparse in spots, filled in others, but what’s there is generally very decent (some of it downright “nice”) and many of the stamps (including highlights) are sound and fresh.  Noted nice Postage Dues (most of the value in mint) including singles stating with J3, some later VF+ plate blocks, even a full sheet of J61 (usual edge faults, but CV $992+ just as 2 plates + singles,) plus another J61 mint “C. V. DeB” corner block of 6, some Special Delivery plates, lovely Special Handling (with a couple gem mint QE4’s,) pretty K2 block with rich color, a few Newspaper stamps (some better may be present, require ID,) etc. 

Very strong 1st-2nd-3rd issue revenues with imperfs (including many with 4 large margins leaving no doubt on genuineness,) part-perfs and perforated (noted some nice hand cancels,) etc.  Too much to try and tally everything, but no doubt many, many thousands in SCV with surprises almost certainly lurking.  Much will grade FVF++ (and some NH spotted in the blocks/multiples).  Some work ahead for the new owner (pages falling out, out of order, etc. - really should be remounted,) but a very worthwhile & rewarding effort as this group has a lot of upside potential.

At the request of a collector, I've photographed virtually the entire lot (just a few single stamps w/ fairly low catalog values that I figured weren't worth the bandwidth and server space...)  You can see the gallery of 98 pictures here!

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:
