Product Description


Group of approximately 325 old auction lots from a well-known public auction firm (Nutmeg Stamp Sales.)  Quality is generally quite nice with lots of sound, VF or better items.  Since all of these were good enough to be lotted individually, there’s very little with a (net) value of less than $20-$25, and many with net values of $50-$75-$100++, making this the PERFECT lot for the eBay or BidStart seller (or collector looking for a load of decent quality material to add to their collection or upgrade with.) Catalog values range from a few bucks up to $6,250, but most are <$200 items (and as an aside, if a lower CV item is lotted, it’s usually because it’s a gem and would retail at multiples of CV anyway!

Highlights are too numerous to mention individually (could mention virtually every lot,) and at least 10 items already have certs (generally hidden behind the card, so I may have missed a few,) including a mint PR3 (sound XF/SUPERB gem w/ large margins and 2005 PFC, CV $400++) and mint U477 (gorgeous gem, full corner, w/ 2005 PFC, CV $130++).  There are many very high quality plate blocks too, including a stunning MNH top plate block of 10 Scott 231 (rich color, large margins, choice centering CV $1,300+++), MNH airmails (C7-C9, C10, C20-C22, C24, C25-C31, etc. all in quantities,) etc.  There are even a few valuable collections (including a very nice assortment of 600+ better fancy cancels – many of these could have been offered individually, as strikes are generally XF+!  This fancy cancel collection alone could return $5,000-$7,500 if properly broken down.)

Potential retail is HUGE, and buying this at <$30/lot is going to be a goldmine for the right person (not to mention a fraction of the original selling/starting prices.)  Loads of quality material here!

At the request of a potential buyer, I photographed the entire fancy cancel group, which you can see here.

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:
