"Stamping Ground" auction in 10 counter books, SCV $25,000

Availability: Out of stock


Product Description


Hundreds of individual lots (probably 750+) filling 10 binders in a medium box, a group that was part of a counter/table auction from “The Stamping Ground” in Willoughby, Ohio (apparently from around 2004 based on penciled dates on the back of sheets.)  Each item is mounted on a bid page with a starting bid and many even have actual bids on them!  (why are they still here?  Deadbeat bidders??)  The material is pretty typical for these types of sales, where most of the lots would sell in the $3-$25 range.  Loads of FVF centered material in typical mixed condition (but at least a good chunk of the lower value items appear sound.)  Higher catalog value items include Scott 77, 78, 134 (strong grill), 112, 166, 219-229, 230-240, 294-299, C1-C6, JQ1-JQ5, plus some more interesting numbers like a 634 counterfeit (these are now Scott listed, this one is 634-CF2.)  The catalog values are old, and the pages are all out of order (needs a complete resorting,) but put a little time into it and you’ll have a useful group for the bourse dealers or club wanting to give a counter auction a try!  Total 2014 Scott catalog value should hit $25,000.

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:
