Product Description


Group of close to 500 items, all mint, mostly all blocks (few plate blocks, some pairs & singles too) in a worn Scott binder (2-post,) covering the 1920’s-1950’s (Scott 346//1002, C1//C44, CE1-CE2, E7//E18 and QE1-QE4a.)  Overwhelmingly sound, VF++ and generally lightly hinged (blocks are hinged to album pages with what appear to be peelable hinges – many times only affecting 2 of the stamps and leaving 2 NH in the block.)  Earliest item is a superb block of Scott 346 (2 stamps NH, CV $85++ as singles) and includes better a few Washington Franklin imperf coil strips, 498/518 (many choice items in here, mostly blocks but includes a plate block of Scott 512,) 551-568 (again, many choice!), 1920’s commemoratives just about complete (including a few better plates like Scott 623), 692-701, a 703 plate with vignette shift, 1930’s just about complete including all five Farley cross-gutter blocks, 803-834 complete (including a number of shade varieties, 832-834 dollars values are all superb gem MNH centerline blocks!) 

Back-of-book includes Scott C1-C6 singles (C4 is a block, C6 a pair,) then mostly complete blocks or plates (except for C13-C15 & C18) through C44 plus a few later.  Special Deliveries include E7-E8 singles, E12-E18 blocks, Special Handling well-represented with a mix of dry and wet printings (mostly blocks, all choice.)

Very high quality throughout, many of the blocks contain singles that would grade 95+.  Wonderful lot for the block collector or graded stamp aficionado.  SUPER high retail potential (and super-high potential SMQ value.) I didn’t add the catalog value, but as you can see from the pictures it too will be very high.

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:
