Product Description


Very clean and overwhelmingly VF NH stock of 3c-10c plate blocks (>60% of the lot are 4c-5c denominations), neatly sorted and packed into glassines with up to 100 plates each.  Hand-selected group with minimal faults, minimal seps, and almost everything NH (I’ll guarantee at least 95% NH, but the actual number is undoubtedly higher.) 

Since this stock has heavy representation from the period of tagging experiments, I quickly waived my lamp over the group and noted several tagging varieties (Scott 1316a, 1319a, 1370c, etc.) – make sure you check these closely, as I just quickly glanced and there are probably more lurking…   Some of these varieties are scarce and carry high retail/catalog values so spend the time and you might be pleasantly surprised! 

Quantities to dozens (or more) per Scott number, but many different plate numbers and positions, so a good chance at making up some matched sets and undoubtedly much more “different” than it first appears.  A very clean worthwhile stock for the collector/specialist (a range of different marginal markings like EE, dashes, lines, etc. noted too.)  Total face value $484.72++.

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:
