Product Description


Nice collection in an old Scott National album with many better items, starting with a sound Scott 8 (just in at left, but otherwise large margins including portion of the stamp below, CV $2,500.)  Otherwise pretty sparse in the earlies (and some mixed condition too.)  Things pick up in the 1890’s with 219-228 (219D a mint OG jumbo), 230-239 (230-231 are NH and the 231 is a 4-margin broken hat variety!), mixed mint/used in the late 19th and early 20th century, but 1920’s commemoratives are pretty complete mint (including a sound, VF NH White Plains souvenir sheet, Scott 630),  1930’s just about complete mint including Farleys (position pieces w/ cross-gutter blocks, NICE!), mint 803-834 (834 VF NH), then apparently complete mint from the 1940’s on (including VF NH Scott 1053.)  The collection ends in the late 1970’s (and a chunk of face here, almost everything is mint.)

The back-of-book is another highlight, with airmails complete (including mint Zeppelins C13-C15, the C14 and C15 are sound & VF NH plate number singles!) C1-C6 used (C6 mint) and C18 a used XF JUMBO, used Special Deliveries (missing only 4 for completion.)

Catalog value not totaled but as you can tell from the highlights above, it’s going to be high (should easily hit $10,000-$15,000, probably the higher side of that range.)  That lovely Zepp set would sell in just about any venue for $1,500-$1,750, so those of you who stick with straight % for collections will miss out here – even though my asking price is a higher-than-usual % for a collection, this is actually a “below wholesale” price…  Think of it as buying a nice mint Zepp set and a beautiful MNH White Plains sheet and getting a LOT more thrown in at next-to-nothing…

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:
