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 COLASSOL COLLECTION/HOARD OF U.S. POSTAL CARDS, MINT/USED, SPANNING THE 1880s-1950s-EST CAT $10,000+! WE HAVE BEEN HOLDING THIS COLLECTION FOR MANY MONTHS WITH THE INTENTION OF PARCELING IT OUT. BUT AFTER CONSIDERING THE TIME INVESTMENT IN DOING SO, HAVE OPTED INSTEAD TO SELL IT INTACT. THERE ARE LITERALLY THOUSANDS OF CARDS, SPANNING OVER 70 YEARS. THE EARLIEST ONES ARE MOSTLY USED WITH SOME INTERESTING USAGES AND CANCELS INCLUDED. MOST OF THE CARDS, DATING FROM THE 1920s TO THE 1950s, ARE MINT (WITH MULTIPLES, AND IN SOME CASES, LARGE MULTIPLES, NOTED). OVERALL, THERE IS A GREAT VARIETY, ESPECIALLY SO WITH THE EARLIER CARDS. WE NOTICED MANY REVALUED CARDS, POSTAL CARDS WITH ATTACHED REPLY CARDS, COLOR AND STOCK VARIANTS, AND MORE…. WE HAVE ONLY SCRATCHED THE SURFACE WITH THE DESCRIPTION HERE, BUT THE PICTURES SHOULD PROVIDE A MORE COMPREHENSIVE SNAPSHOT OF THE CONTENTS. THERE ARE MANY HOURS, IF NOT DAYS OR WEEKS, OF CATALOGING AND RESEARCH AHEAD FOR THE NEW OWNER, WITH THE ADDITIONAL PROSPECT OF FINDING SOMETHING SPECIAL. THIS IS A FACSINATING, BACK-OF-THE-BOOK AREA OF UNITED STATES PHILATELY; THIS OFFERING COULD EITHER JUMP-START AN EXISITING COLLECTION OR LAY THE FOUNDATION FOR A NEW ONE. Our commitment is to provide you with quality coins and collectibles at the best possible prices. This lot 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.
