Product Description


Very nice banknote study, Scott 134//218, mostly used with a few mint/unsed, hinged to old Thorp & Martin quadrille pages.  Starts with grills (x8, including 136 split grill and several I-grills,) then non-grill denominations to 90c (x1).  Noted a number of very nice fancy cancels (patent, stars, crosses, better geometrics, NYFM, color, etc.), several of which are exhibition quality, also spotted some paper/die varieties (ribbed, re-engraved/altered designs, mint 214 jumbo w/ interesting short-transfer upper left corner, etc.) some better shades (including 208 and 208a, a genuine 209b), etc.  Usual mixed condition but some well-centered (like the 90c Scott 218) and some sound as well.  A very worthwhile assortment for the banknote/cancel specialist, worthy of expansion or more in-depth study.  2014 Scott catalog value probably around $6,000, but no cancel premiums added to that and some of the better fancies will push the retail well above that.

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:
