Product Description


Fabulous lot of 43 first day covers, each with a line pair (or strip.)   Scarce assembly that starts with Scott 598 (line strip of 3) and includes 600 (rare as a LP!), 602 (ditto!), 605 (line strip of 4, rare), 656 (rare as LP), 686 (Roessler), 721 (w/ handstamp USS Constitution cancel, scarce), 722 (Rice), 722 (Ioor), 723 (scarce LP with USS Constitution rubber handstamp, unaddressed - gorgeous item!), 839-851 (matched set of LP’s on Fidelity cachets, scarce set of LP’s!), 1055b (Zaso), 1615C (hand-made photo cachet,) 1907 (pair with plate #5), 1907 (pair with plate #6), etc. 

Generally VF, and Scott’s “rule of thumb” for line pairs (multiply the single price x3) leaves a lot to be desired for the early coils.  For instance, the Scott 723 cacheted cover w/ unofficial handstamp USS Constitution cancel is probably a $100-$125+ item, despite the $15 CV for a single.  Exceptionally difficult lot to assemble, and a great opportunity when offered intact like this (virtually every cover here could have been an individual lot.)  2016 Scott catalog value (calculated at 3x the single price, without any premiums for cachets) is $2,004+++.

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:
