Product Description


Mish-mash of odds-and-ends, filling a large box, consisting of 6 binders filled with manila stockpages, 3 albums, 1 stockbook, and a bag of odds and ends including a Graf Zeppelin souvenir card, loose stamps, greeting cards, postcards, covers (including oversize cover Special Delivery w/ 5c Overrun Nations from Dean Academy in Franklin MA,) and lots of other misc.

Noted many mint & used modern items (many 5c-20c denominations.)  The face will add up quickly to $100’s but there’s even better value in the several thousand VF+ postally used commemoratives, often in quantities (far more difficult to obtain than you’d think!)  Other items of interest include a 3c Liberty coil full leader strip (from a roll of 500) with first 5 stamps (including a line pair,) used 345 block, banknotes to 90c (Scott 191, CV $300), few telegraph stamps, PO seals, few stockcards of “tagged varieties,” used 5c “Kans” block (pretty scarce as a used block!), etc., etc.

The albums are nothing to write home about, but one has a decent collection in it (reasonably clean with better items like used 230-237, 294-297, 310, mint 730-731, etc., used E2-E3, E7, etc. total CV around $1,000), another is in more mixed condition but also has a SCV  around $1,000, the third album is a beat-up old Scott National w/ just the back-of-book pages but with Officials (scant,) Parcel Post, Special Handling, cut squares, revenues, etc.  Total CV for this album well over $500.

This should give you hours of fun and won’t cost an arm and a leg (and you should come away with enough postage to send all your letters, cards and correspondence for years.)  Total weight over 30 lbs, so a very low “per lb” basis too!

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:
