Product Description


Old-time US stock of mint and used in an old ratty black 2-post stockbook w/ manila pages.  Loads of catalog value but very mixed condition – virtually everything with a fault (varying degrees from filler to minor) or poor centering.  Some useful material though, and if you’re looking to fill spots or “salt” collections, a good group to pull from, especially at this low a percentage.  Includes (unused unless noted) Scott 25, 28 used (bright, rich color, possibly a 28b but counted as the less expensive 28), 63 (x8), 64 used (x2, and they’re real pinks, one has a purple cast and neat blue CDS and IMO has an outside chance of being the scarce pigeon blood shade,) 76 (OG but stuck to piece of paper – could be removed with care,) 77 (OG), 78 (OG), 78 used (x9 various shades), 83 used (x2, both guaranteed genuine and properly identified,) 85 used (genuine), 87 var used (scarce double grill – counted as used but possibly unused and quite rare if so!),  88 (OG), 92 used (x3), 99 used, 113 (x2), quantities of banknotes, many with fresh appearance, Columbians (including 230-239 x3 sets plus many extras,) small bureaus, Trans-Mississippi (including 285-290), Pan-Americans, 300-309 (many extras,) 323-327 (many extras), scattered Washington Franklins, 397/400A, etc.  Approximate 2014 Scott catalog value $85,000-90,000.  The pictures show only a tiny fraction of the lot, enough to give you a feel for content/quality. There are some better numbers here, not the sort you can usually buy at 5% of SCV…

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:
