Product Description


Working show stock consisting of approximately 750 stamps, all on dealer cards from Falmouth Stamp & Coin (Falmouth MA), Mint & used with individual items cataloging $1-$500+ but much in the $10-$75 range.  Truly mixed condition from filler to VF+ (just when you’re about ready to give up hope, a nice sound MNH stamp comes along…,) duplication to 10+ but most with more reasonable quantities. 

Starts with a forgery of Scott 10x1 (w/ “OG” and one of the more deceptive ones, retail probably $50+) and includes 24 var (type Va), 63b (clipped perfs but still attractive and true dark blue shade, CV $800), 1861-1866 to 90c (x3), 1869’s to 24c (the 24c w/ vignette shift, also includes genuine 133 w/ OG,) 134 pair and other grilled banknotes (including a couple I-grill varieties,) banknotes to 90c, 219-229 (including cap on both 2’s Scott 220c,) strength in Columbians to the 50c (including a number of sound NH lower denominations, two mint broken hats, a few “3-leaf” 4c varieties, 237 sound NH x7, 238 x7 mint, 240 mint x5 & used x3, etc.,) 1894’s-1895’s to $1 (including a sound MNH block of 268 CV $460+), Trans-Mississippi’s to 50c (x4 used.)

2014 Scott catalog value probably $55,000-$60,000.  Useful stock for the bourse dealer or budding eBay/BidStart seller (average stamp catalogs >$70,) containing popular numbers, a few specialized items (fancy/colored cancels, better shades) and enough saleable material to make it all worthwhile at the price.

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:
