Product Description


Another mish-mash – a whole mess of odds and ends and everything else that accumulates in my office over the months, offered to someone with more time and patience than me!

There’s a slug of coins and currency, including 2 silver certificates, 16 partially-filled Whitman folders, “Coins of the World” 2-volume set (high orig cost!), then some old silverplate (including a set of Rogers knives), a small stack of stocks/bonds, some old checks, etc. However, the bulk of the value is in stamps and stamp-related material. Just a huge amount of material including about a dozen albums (even a few hingeless,) then another dozen or more stockbooks/binders, plus cigar boxes, loads of loose glassines, dealer cards/pages, etc. I noted individual values to $500++, loads of $1-$75 stuff, some reference material, specialized items, postage (probably $100’s,) souvenir cards (noted a few better incl show canceled,) lots of Washington Franklins for those who want to go cross-eyed watermarking and typing, etc.

Condition is all over the place but the total retail/catalog is going to be enormous (probably $100,000-$150,000+) and it fills 4 large (heavy) boxes. I often say something like “this would make a great winter project,” but you may not finish this one in a single winter, so I’ll say “happy hunting” instead... Lots of fun & finds await the lucky buyer!

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:
