Product Description


Group of 38 odds and ends, most still on original dealer card or sales sheet.  Mixed condition ranging from filler to sound, with centering ranging from Average to Superb.  Questionable, misidentified & fake items present, but even ignoring those, the lot still has substantial value!

Starts with a Scott 9 (almost 4 margins, position 93R1L – recut 1x at top, 2x at bottom + double transfer) and includes other better items like 11A var (95L1L, 5 lines recut in upper left triangle,) two Scott 64’s (one is identified as 64a pigeon blood but I don’t think so,) another “wannabe” rare stamp (ID’d as Scott 201 but almost certainly not despite being signed on back as such – counted only as an unused 190,) scattered Columbians to the 50c, almost all mint/unused with some NH, faulty used 261A (extremely lightly canceled – looks mint at first glance,) small group of mint 2c Trans-Mississippi’s with PB6 (selvage detached,) 3 imprint pairs and a single, unused 342, mint NH 351 line pair (looks genuine but not guaranteed), mint 356 (thinned, looks like it could be genuine but no cert & not guaranteed,) “387” MNH pair (sold as such but IMO a deceptive fake,) 519 MNH that looks like it could be genuine (not guaranteed,) 536a (needs cert but might be genuine, small fault NGC), etc.

Massive potential catalog value but check closely as everything isn’t always what it seems here… huge original owner cost (>$10,000.)  I’ve priced this very conservatively, assuming most of the questionable items end up bad…  A fun lotto ticket for the speculator.

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:
