Product Description


Small group of 7 items, each with a 2014 graded PSE certificate (paper,) all XF or better and mint NH with one designated as a “jumbo.”  Includes Scott 618 (90), 629 (90), 657 (90), 726 (90), 739 (95J), 838 (95), 853 (95). 

These came from a collector who sought out “undergraded” items.  In other words, if PSE graded it 90, he had to think it was at least a 95 before he’d buy.  If they graded it 95J, he thought it should have been at least 98J, etc.  FWIW, I agree in general with his assessments – all of these look to be on the “very high” side of the grade (if not worthy of the next notch up.)   SMQ (as graded) is $235++.  Estimated retail value $300-400+

Just out of curiosity, I calculated the SMQ if each was graded one notch higher.  That number would be $565…

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:
