Product Description


Magnificent group of 861 Scott 807a booklet panes (3c Presidential/Prexy 1938.)  Each pane with a partial plate number.  This is the remainder of a highly specialized collection - these panes were mostly duplicates (generally extras he obtained, or old "bests" where he found a better percentage.)

Almost all are left side positions with more than 25 different plate numbers noted.  Duplication to 96 (plate #22437) but most far more reasonable, and even noted some of the scarcer 3mm pre-eye plates (#21998 x28).  Although I noted some 100% examples, most are in the 40-70% range (still very collectible/desirable!)  A couple small faults or hinge marks spotted, but the group is OVERWHELMINGLY sound and never hinged.

An amazing assortment with very high retail potential; well-suited for the booklet pane specialist, wholesaler or dealer/online seller.  Detailed spreadsheet available upon request showing plate number, position, percentage, quantity, etc.

2012 Durland catalog value = $52,080+, with no premium for better numbers/positions.
2015 Scott catalog value = $7,920.50++++
(as normal panes with no premiums for plate numbers, better positions, etc.)

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:
