Product Description


Confederate States Scott 11d, 10c green, 1863.  Mint plate block of 14 (“No. 1”, no other imprint, designated 11-ADe-ia in the CSA catalog), original gum, single hinge mark affects position #12, the other 13 stamps are never hinged.  Crease between rows 4 and 5, not affecting any stamps.  Without the usual gum creases as often seen.  Fresh and attractive gem! 

Several stamps in the bottom row could be turned into 100 or 100J MNH singles (SMQ = $550/ea for common blue shade “100”, 100J and 11d not listed), but I don’t recommend butchering lovely multiples like this… The plate number without imprint is rare (esp. in green!) and unlisted in the Scott Specialized catalog.  The green shade carries a 375% premium in Scott and a 600% premium in the CSA catalog.

2019 Scott Specialized catalog value: $2,100 est (for green PB w/ impr)
CSA Catalog (2012): $4,025 est (for hinged PB6 + 2 hinged B4’s)
Estimated value: $3,000-$4,000

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:
