Product Description


Very nice all-different stock of approximately 200 plate blocks, Scott 536//1053, C7//C46, CE1-CE2, QE1-QE3, each neatly displayed, described and priced on Robert Hazelwood (Georgetown TX) dealer sales sheets.  No “filler” or “face” material, just better items (for instance, Scott 1049-1053 are present but the lower values are not – easily added, and the Scott 1053 is choice XF NH, as are most other keys.)  In fact, the whole lot is pretty much “choice,” and more than half are NH (and the rest usually just lightly hinged on 1 or 2 stamps, sometimes just in the selvage.)  Easily VF+ overall – a very clean & attractive group!

Highlights include 536, 575, 611, 614-615, 617-618, 620, 622, 627, 631, 632//642 (missing 634A), nice 2c reds, 693//701 (701 choice), 704-715, 740-749, 785-794, 803-834 (834 is only F/VF, but MNH and one of the scarcest number combinations per Durland = 24481/F23476, CV $1,000++,) 807 scarce EE plate, 859//893, 1053, C7-C9, C10-C12, C16-C17, C20-C22, C24, C25-C31, C46, CE1-CE2, QE1-QE3. 

Super high retail potential (probably $6,000-$8,000) and a great start to a plate block collection if you’re looking for another area to dabble in, or great group if you’re already a collector and need upgrades (it would probably cost you twice what I’m asking if you bought these individually…) It’s probably not necessary to state this would be a magnificent group for dealers – exceptional quality throughout with many keys and complete sets present!

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:
