Product Description


Group of approximately 90 pieces of memorabilia from various World’s Fairs, starting with 1876 and going up through 2008.  The bulk of the value is from the 1876, 1893 & 1939 fairs, with a number of better items noted including Centennial package tickets (x5), lovely 1884 New Orleans advertising card (Ricksecker’s Perfumes), a fabulous 1893 Exposition La Victoria cigar label (I still remember when these sold for $300+ each!), 1893 set of 10 “Enterprise” trade cards (colorful & popular), several string-bound Columbian Expo advertising booklets, Very Fine 1901 Singer Sewing Machine cut-out advertising booklet, unlisted 1904 Celluloid cover note pad (with original write-up from an old Kirtley auction where the buyer paid $180+), more labels, pamphlets, etc. including a very nice & high quality group from the 1939 New York World’s Fair (even one of the “golden keys” w/ outer envelope and insert card, plus a nice set of WF cinderella labels; full sheet w/ original envelope!)

Take a look at the gallery, as the entire lot is photographed.  A very nice opportunity for the collector of World’s Fair memorabilia, and definitely nice enough to offer as individual items on sites like eBay.   Offered at a true wholesale price with many $25++ retail individual items 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:
