Product Description


Confederate States Scott 11d, 10c green shade, 1863.  Mint single, original gum, never hinged2012 graded PSE certificate (XF-Sup 95, Mint OGnh).  Post-office fresh and choice gem, sound in all respects.

An amazing stamp, but one thing has me absolutely baffled -- why did this stamp grade 95 and not 95J?  Seriously, who wouldn't call this stamp a jumbo, with portions of 3 adjacent stamps and a huge sheet margin at left???   I can only believe the cert has a typo (or was a simple oversight) and the real grade should have been 95J.  Regardless, it's got a "95" cert and is an absolutely amazing stamp, especially rare in the green shade

Scott 11d is not valued in the SMQ guide, but Scott values it at a 4.7x premium ($75 vs. $16 for common shades.)  Using the SMQ 95 value for the common shade ($280) and applying that same premium gives an estimated SMQ value of over $1,300.

2014 Scott Specialized catalog value: $75+++ (for hinged, est $225+++ for NH)
PSE SMQ value (95): $1,300+ (est)

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:
