Product Description


Fabulous study (and stock) of thousands of Scott 807a booklet pane varieties, virtually every one with a partial plate number, with some approaching 100% visibility but most 30-50%.  For the specialists who are curious, every one of the scarcer 3mm “pre-eye” plate numbers is present (in quantities!)  Overwhelmingly sound and largely NH, this is a post-office fresh group that would be nearly-impossible to duplicate today.  Sorted into cards, envelopes and boxes generally by plate number, and sometimes by how much of that plate number is showing.

Total Furman (1999) value is guaranteed to exceed $250,000++ (that’s not a typo, it’s going to be well into 6-figures!)  If you don’t like to use Furman values, or want something a little more current, the Durland (2012) value will exceed $175,000+++.  An amazing group for the specialist, hoarder, booklet pane collector or Prexy enthusiast!  I don’t think I’m going too far out on a limb when I say you’ll be the only one on the block with a specialized assortment like this!

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:
