Product Description


Large green stockbook filled with many thousands of lower value (<$100, most <$10) used US, with virtually nothing after the 1930’s.  The real value here isn’t going to be in the individual higher catalog value items, which are generally in very rough condition, it’s going to be in the lower value (<$10) items in generally decent condition.  For instance, there are thousands of used Washington Franklins which appear largely unsorted (just by denomination, but different perfs, coils, private perfs, etc. all mixed together within the rows.)  Just a quick check shows lots of potential for finds of higher value material, so look closely EVERYWHERE.  In addition, there are large quantities (often hundreds) of other popular numbers like 210, 248//279B, 1902-1903 bureaus, etc. where specialist literature is available and you’re bound to find some die/plate, paper, shade, etc. varieties.  2014 Scott catalog value should exceed $20,000, but that’s just a ballpark guess as it wouldn’t take too many better W/F’s to make this a whole lot more valuable than that… Have fun with this one - it’s a hunter’s, flyerspecker’s, accumulator’s and/or hoarder’s paradise!  Take a look at some of the sample pictures to get a feel for the potential of this lot.

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:
