Product Description


Remainder of 250-300 coil waste items, all guaranteed genuine, all mint, many never hinged (over $8,500 of the CV is NH.)  Consists of Scott 538 and 540 (I didn’t see any 539’s, but didn’t check all that closely….) in various formats: singles, pairs, blocks and plate blocks (plus one 538a top plate number imperforate horizontally pair.)  Everything stuffed into four 3x5 dual-flap dealer cards.  Typical centering – generally Avg to F+, but faults are minimal with much sound and everything fresh/bright. 

Strength (and most of the value) is in “S30” type plate blocks (around 50 of those cataloging approximately $7,000) but also noted “number only” plates and a few “star” plates as well plus probably several hundred stamps in singles or pairs.  Nice stock for the flyspecker or Washington Franklin specialist; a rare chance to pick up a hoard of genuine coil waste issues.  2016 Scott catalog value approximately $13,700.

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:
