Product Description


Valuable Washington Franklin remainder – the leftovers from an advanced collector’s study with items on stockcards, mounted on pages, sorted in 3x5’s, etc.  Many obviously better items noted including Scott 342 (VF OG, clean PFC but now with nibbed perf at top,) 357-358 (genuine used,) 424-425 “COIL STAMPS” plate blocks of 10 (OG, sound & fresh!, CV $350++) 450 line strip of 4 (sound & PO fresh MNH, CV $605++) 480 (mint VF/XF OG sound, CV $170+) 505 5c carmine error (block of 6, sound, slightly glazed OG, CV $300+), gorgeous top plate block of 16 Scott 534 (MNH, #11422, CV $475++, could make several 100J singles if desired), 545-546 (mint OG, 545 is NH, CV $505), etc.

All that plus many dozens of stamps on stockcards that need sorting – fake coils, genuine coils, potentially valuable items, coil waste issues, bluish papers, jumbos, etc.  Check closely for compound perfs (one is marked as such,) die varieties, etc., as this collector usually saved stuff for a reason and I haven’t put the potentially valuable items through a critical assessment.

Hours of fun and plenty of “lottery tickets” scattered throughout (above and beyond the obvious value mentioned above.)  I’ve generally counted the questionable items at nothing, so as you go through the pictures, you might see a lot more potential than my price indicates…

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:
