We offer items in two formats. We sincerely appreciate your business.
Over the next several years, I plan to offer more than 100,000 stamp lots for sale. My written descriptions will provide a general description of the item being offered and I try hard to be as accurate as possible. Ive been an avid collector for 57 years but Im human so, if you think Ive misidentified something, please let me know! PICTURES provided with each item are considered to be the PRIMARY DESCRIPTION, so ultimately YOU MUST BE THE JUDGE of the condition and value of each lot.
If you have questions or concerns, PLEASE ASK! Here is a list of symbols that I sometimes use, in various combinations, to help describe my stamps. Mint never hinged , MOG = mint with most of the original gum and probably hinged, UNUSED = mint no gum U = used. If stamp was originally issued with no gum, it will be listed as MAI (mint as issued), L = light, VL = very light, XL = extra light, A = average, F = fine, FVF = fine very fine, VF = very fine, XF = extra fine, SUP = superb, Pnn = number of perfs, IMPERF = no perforations, NWMK = no watermark, SWMK = single line watermark, DWMK = double line watermark, T = type, CVAR = color variety, V = vertical, H = horizontal, PB = plate block, B4 = block of four, B6 = block of six, FDC = first day cover. Will receive the exact same stamp(s) that you see in the scan(s).
The CV that I offer as a RETAIL POINT OF REFERENCE is based on the highest listed catalog price among Scott, Mystic, Kenmore, Harris, and Brookman catalogs for a non-faulted VERY FINE specimen. While Scott is considered the de facto catalog standard and is much more detailed with older classic material, they do not actually sell stamps. The other catalogs listed do sell stamps, so they tend to have a better sense of what the actual retail market price is. Stamps of a lesser grade and condition typically will sell for less and stamps that are better will often sell for multiples of this price. The guideline (CV) that I provide is generally accepted as the price that a very nice stamp will sell for at retail.I will try to be as accurate and as descriptive as I can in my listings. It is my intention to treat collectors as fairly as possible. Based on lot size and weight, some large lots may not be combinable.
