Product Description


Scott 365, 13c on bluish paper, 1909.  Used single, light town cancel, small and very faint crease (about the height of 3 perfs) in the left margin, ending in a super tiny tear between perfs (a small fraction of 1 mm.)  2014 Philatelic Foundation certificate.

The cancel is almost certainly from Saginaw MI.  Even though it's indistinct, most of the known used examples of this Scott number originate there and the oval they used has a very distinct appearance.  Many of the known postally used examples have faults to some degree.  I'm going to include a scan of the back so you can see just how trivial the problems with this one are -- virtually invisible, except in fluid.

Siegel sold a very similar stamp (not as well centered, also with a trivial fault, also with a light Saginaw MI oval) for $977.50 back in 2003, but that was when the stamp only cataloged $2,250.  With the current CV at $4,000, a comparable realization today would be $1,735.

If you collect used US, your "bluish paper" page is probably pretty empty - only the 1c & 2c stamps are readily available.  A very attractive example of this super-scarce stamp!

2014 Scott Specialized catalog value: $4,000

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:
