Product Description


Group of 32 first day covers, all unaddressed & cacheted, all higher-denomination stamps (the most expensive items of the sets – and the ones almost always missing from groups like this!)  Here’s a chance to add a bunch of “keys.”

Highlights include Scott 832c (with “$1.00” imprint selvage, CV $30++,) 1053 (plate number single! $50++), and 1295 ($40+.)  Also noted many very popular numbers like 1992 Columbian souvenir sheets (Scott 2624-2629 on 5 covers), 1994 $5 Washington/Jackson plate block (Scott 2592, scarce as a plate!), 1994 $2 bureau souvenir sheet (Scott 2875,) $1-$5 Washington 2006 dollar values (Scott 4075a-4075c on 3 separate covers,) etc.

The original face value of the stamps alone is $118++, but with FDC’s like Scott 1053 present, the fair retail value will certainly be multiples of that number.  A great opportunity for the collector or dealer, and a scarce & underappreciated area (at least today.)

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:
