Product Description


Interesting group of approximately 800-900 mostly better FDC’s in 4 padded binders plus small box.  Generally 1920’s to about 1940 (not too much after that, and then generally better numbers like 909/921 & 1030/1053.)  A decent percentage of cacheted covers (maybe 20%?? including a few better makers) and tons of catalog/retail/Planty value (individual items to $190.) Generally F/VF, and even though there’s duplication of a given Scott number, there are also sets of different cities, different cachets, some postmaster signed, etc.  – a great group for the starting or intermediate collector, with enough better items to interest those already well immersed in the area.

Loaded with highlights including (uncacheted unless noted) Scott 551 (addr Nickels,) 552 (addr Worden,) 560 (x2, CV $190 each), 592, 600 (addr Worden,) 602, 610, 614 (x4), 615 (x2), 616, 617 (x3), 618 (x2), 619 (x3, CV $75 ea), 620 (x2), 621, 622 (x2), 623, 628 (x5), 636, 644, 646, 647-648, 649-650 single cover (x2), 704-715 (individual covers), 720b pane (CV $100), 723-2 (APS), 735, 750 (APS), 751, 756-765 (blocks), 803-834 (complete Ioor set plus extras including panes) 832C, 839-851 (various cachets + dups,) 855 (x2, diff cachets,) 859-893 (various cachets,) 1053 (Artmaster, UA), C10, C18 (Miami 10/6 Zeppelin flight cover, CV $150,) C20, C21-C22, C24, C25-C31, etc.

Offered at less than $2.50/cover, a super price for better FDC’s like these, leaving plenty of room for profit for the dealers.  It also leaves the opportunity for a budding collector to pull the best example of each Scott number/city/cachet, sell the rest, and start your FDC collection for virtually nothing!  IMO, the top 100 items are easily worth my asking 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:
