Valuable accumulation in glassines, high catalog!

Availability: Out of stock


Product Description


Group of several hundred unsorted glassines in a small box, apparently the “rainy day” box of a dealer/collector still waiting to be processed.  Scott 29//BOB with tons of catalog (individual values to several $100’s) but mixed condition including fillers, faults, heavy cancels, regummed, disturbed gum, etc.  Still much FVF with some VF or better and a number of sound stamps noted (including a few NH in the mint) and a heavier focus on commemoratives than you might expect.  Also noted a number of decent multiples (both mint & used, including marginal markings.) 

Better Scott numbers include 29, 63, 73 (x6), 76 (2 shades, maybe even a scarce 76a?), 77, 78 (x2), 87, 95 (blue & manuscript cancels,) 96-97, 112 (x2), 113 (x3), 115 (x2), 116 (x2), 117 (x3), 154 (x2), 162(*), 162 (x3), 163 (x3), 218 (x2, one with red cancel,) 231 var (broken hat, x6 mint OG), 232 block 4, 233* (x2), 234* (x2), 235 (x13, various shades,) 236* (x2), 238*, 287* (x2), 288-289*, 289 (x5), 290* (x2), 291, nice Pan-Am’s 294-299 including multiples, 323-327 (mint & used), 326 block 4, 328*/** block 4, 330* (x2), 330 (x9), 399* (x2), 400* (x2), 403*, 404 (x5), 480 block 4, 611** MNH centerline block, small selection of mint Kans./Nebr. Overprints, good stock of 1920’s mint/used commemoratives, 1930’s including Presidentials to 834*, good selection of back-of-book with airmails pretty complete except for Zepps but including C1-C6*, C18* (x2), good mint/used Special Deliveries with E1* (x2), E3* (x2), E7* (x2), E8*, E9*, J21, J44, Parcels, Special Handling, even a Loewenberg essay on onionskin (79-E18a), etc.

Probably 1,000-1,500 stamps (with modest quantities of some lower value stamps) with a current Scott value that will easily exceed $25,000 (maybe $30k+, but I’m being conservative to avoid disappointment!)  …and make sure you check the glassines closely, even the common issues, as this person seemed to add a lot of stuff for a “reason” – for instance, even in the glassines of common used I saw some potentially better shade varieties, and noted at least (5) Scott 233 3-leaf varieties in tne Scott 233 glassine, etc.

Good stock for the specialist/flyspecker, accumulator/hunter, or online seller looking to round out inventory at a very low % of CV.  Way too much to photograph everything, so here are a few single items I noted, along with a few of the glassines showing better items.  You’ll need to buy it & dig in to unleash the full potential!

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:
