Product Description


Old, small, ratty green stockbook loaded with mostly all used US.  Very rough condition with many fillers and off-centered stamps, but pockets of moderately useful lower value material.  Starts with Scott 11 and includes better numbers like 13 (trimmed close & cut to shape at bottom,) 63 (x7, various shades including at least one 63b), various 3c 1861’s including several genuine 64b’s, 69 (x6), 70c (attractive w/ blue cancel, CV $2,250) plus 7 more 70/78 shades (including a possible 70d), 72, 87 (x2), 90-91, 98 (x2), 113 (x8), 117 (x8), lots of banknotes to the 90c denomination and quantities of better like 208 (x6), Columbians to the 15c, small bureaus to the 50c (x25 including a slug that might include some more valuable 260’s), Trans-Mississippi’s to the 10c, 294//299 (quantities), 300/310 (quantities including 310 x8), 323-327 (at least 4 complete sets plus extras), Washington Franklins including better like 342 (x2), imperfs, coils (check these, some potentially better items like “388’s” not counted), plus a scattering of more modern items like 573 (x9) and back-of-book (like quantities of E1-E3).  Condition improves a tad in the 20th Century, but don’t hold your breath hoping for a bunch of sound FVF stamps.  They’re few and far between, as you might imagine from my asking price.  A great lot for salting or fiddling with, or maybe making up some inexpensive shade sets of tougher Scott numbers, as I saw a broad range of colors in many of the piles…  Estimated 2014 Scott value $40,000-$50,000.

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:
