Product Description


Lovely collection in green padded Lighthouse Hingeless albums (missing volume 1, but the next 5 covering 1893 to 2001 are present with slips, retail $800+).  Overall quality is exceptionally nice, with virtually everything VF or better, and virtually everything NH.  28 certificates accompany (all "clean," stamps sound, several graded.)  This collector did it the right way, buying even the lowest value items in the best condition he could afford, certified if possible. 

While there isn’t a ton of catalog value here, the overall quality is exceptional, and the vast majority of mint are NH.  Better numbers include (all VF NH or better unless noted) 230-234 (232 & 233 w/ PSE certs,) 236 (VLH, graded PSE-90), 328-330 (330 w/ PSE, CV $450+), 455 pair (graded PFC 90XQ) and several other certified Washington Franklin coil pairs, 503 (VLH, graded PSE-Superb 98), 548-550, 551//572 (4 w/ certs including the 572), 630 (gem w/ full selvage and no notch! $600++), C1 (PSE,) C4 (PSE), C5, C18, E3 (PSE, only F/VF but scarce NH! $675+), K6 ($220+), Q6, etc.  Appears to be complete from the Farley’s (including gutter & cross-gutter special printings) all the way to 2001 including all the keys like 834, 1053, 2870 (Recalled Legends), etc.  Face value will be huge (4-figures), but is not totaled.

A fabulous basis for expansion, or wonderful group for the reseller, as everything is clean, sound and well-centered.  One of the nicest overall-quality collections I can recall offering.

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:
