Product Description


Group of 3 different California state duck souvenir mini-sheets, each signed by artist Sherrie Russell Meline.  Includes the standard “Collector Edition” (900 issued) and “Hunter Edition” (250 issued) but also has the scarce “Hunter Edition” also signed by the “Director Department of Fish and Game” (only 100 issued.)  Scott lists but doesn’t price the Collector and Hunter edition, ditto for Sam Houston.  Brookman prices the Collector edition at $135 and the (normal) Hunter at $70, but doesn’t list the Hunter variety with both signatures (it’s 9x scarcer, est value $250-$500+)

I have an article (PDF format) from the Winter 2007 “Duck Tracks” journal that includes an article on this issue and its varieties, written by Ira W. Cotton.  I can forward that to the new owner if desired (just email & ask.)

Very scarce group of 3 different sheets – an important lot for the California State Duck stamp collector.  Estimated retail $500-$750+.

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:
