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 SCOTT #3 5c RED-BROWN, REPRODUCTION, VF, NO GUM AS ISSUED, W/ 1998 PF CERTIFICATE, BRIGHT/SOUND-CAT $1000. MUCH, MUCH SCARCER THAN THE ORIGINAL, THIS STAMP WAS ISSUED FOR COLLECTORS AND SOLD IN CONJUNCTION W/ THE CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION. FOR SOME ODD REASON (PROBABLY THE FRAGILITY OF THE PAPER), MANY INCURRED FAULTS OVER THE YEARS, AND FINDING A BRIGHT, SOUND EXAMPLE CAN PROVE CHALLENGING. THIS IS ONE STAMP THAT IS GROSSLY UNDERVALUED IN SCOTT! 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 verify your order.
