Product Description


Working stock consisting of approximately 600 stamps, all on dealer cards from Falmouth Stamp & Coin (Falmouth MA), Scott 294//921 (but not too much after Scott 723.)  Mint & used with catalog values from $1-$150 (few higher), but median probably closer to $15-$20.  Mixed condition with some (mostly small) faults or poor centering, but most FVF or better and a number of attractive stamps present (including some of the higher value items.)  Some duplication but most quantities <5.  Nice 20th Century stock filled with many popular numbers, identified and sorted by Scott numbers, cataloged with 2005 Scott values.

Noted Scott 294-299 (mixed mint/used), 300-308, 311 (x4), 323-327 (mixed mint/used), nice selection of Washington Franklins, 369 used (x2, both off-center but genuine), 397-404 (mixed mint/used), 439 used strip of 3 (with APS certificate, optimistically submitted as 476A but now with a nice typed note from APS telling the submitter where to find the watermark), 540-550, 551/569, 634A used corner block, 647 mint plate block, Kans/Nebr mint/used, etc.  Even a few items for the specialist, like vignette shifts, booklet panes with plate numbers, etc. 

The 2005 Scott catalog values probably total $25,000 or so (but that number doesn’t include any of the questionable items like Scott 317, 318, 388, 461, 534B.  BTW, the 534B is definitely type VII, just probably not wide enough to get a good cert.)  Good stock for the bourse dealer or budding eBay/BidStart seller.

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:
