The Reeded Edge recently purchased an immense U.S. stamp collection from an advanced lifetime collector. The collection spanned classics to commemoratives with extensive back-of-the-book also represented. Today’s offering will include selections from this collection. Buy with confidence, as we have made every attempt to disclose faults and characteristics of each lot, with a high degree of accuracy. We are also members of the APS (Rob Lehmann), and adhere to their code of ethics. PF, PSE or APEX extensions may be requested for any stamp, but the buyer will bear the costs of certification. With that said this is a ca. 1890s BATTERED SCOTT INTERNATIONAL ALBUM, HUNDREDS OF EARLY USED STAMPS HINGED/PAGES. THIS IS A VERY OLD ALBUM (ONE OF THE OLDEST THAT WE HAVE EVER SEEN OR HANDLED), AND NO STAMP IS DATED LATER THAN 1890s. THE PAGES ARE FRAGILE, AND MANY OF THE STAMPS ARE FAULTY, BUT THERE ARE SOUND STAMPS, AS WELL. WE ARE CONSERVATIVELY GUESSING CATALOG VALUE TO BE NORTH OF $1000, BUT THAT IS ONLY OUR BEST GUESS. WE HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED MANY OF THE PAGES CONTAINING STAMPS, BUT NOT ALL. AS USUAL, THERE WILL PROBABLY BE A FEW SURPRISES. THIS REALLY IS A TIME CAPSULE, GIVING US A SNAPSHOT ON HOW STAMP COLLECTIONS WERE ASSEMBLED 1 1/4 CETURIES AGO! Our commitment is to provide you with quality coins and collectibles at the best possible prices. This piece is no exception. Please note, the coin and collectibles markets do fluctuate, and prices occasionally will change. In this rare circumstance, we will contact you first to verify your order.
