Product Description

Details

Scott 158, 3c Washington, Continental Bank Note Company, wove paper, with secret mark, 1873.  Mint single, original gum, pristine never hinged (no bends, skips or other trivial blemishes.) Post-office fresh and choice with large margins and intense color, sound in all respects.  2015 PSE certificate for block of 12 (this stamp position #3.)

Wonderful post-office fresh example with incredible color and large margins.  I have all the other stamps from this block (just listed a couple here -- contact me if you're interested in others from this multiple.)  Scott doesn't list NH values for the Continental banknote set, but the 3c value from the later American set carries a 3.66x premium for NH.  If listed, this set would have at least that premium and probably more, being an even earlier release.  Hinged catalog value is $110.)

2015 Scott Specialized catalog value: $400+ (est)

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:
