U.S. Used Collection in Scott Album: 1873-1991 Collection of over 1100 different used stamps in like-new (1990 edition, but very fresh and nice) Scott Minuteman album with sturdy slip case (very unusual with slip case). Early issues sparse to 1940, then a strong showing of commemorative and regular issues of the next 50 years, plus some airmails and other back-of-book stamps. Nearly all F-VF or VF. While not expensive, it can be very labor intensive and time consuming to assemble so many different stamps. Here you have the vast majority of the later 20th century issues all together in one place; an excellent foundation on which to expand in this album!

U.S. NH Commemoratives Collection 1983-1993: Very attractive and neat NH VF collection of commemorative issues on Minkus pages in Minkus 3-ring binder. Mostly well-filled pages. 2007 Brookman retail value $356! -- there are a lot of stamps here. Virtually all spaces (even if the stamps are not present) have black mounts in very good condition. If you use the pages, there is a lot of value in the pages and mounts too! Very fresh and nice. At this price of LESS THAN HALF Brookman if you have a few duplicates when you add this to your collection, you can just use the duplicates for postage.

Among the better issues in this section are Scott #704-15, 730-1, 750, and 859-93. Scott 2015 retail totals $750 (1893-1920 = $424; 1923-46 = $326+). A useful lot with a considerable amount of the value in the mint issues of the 1920s-30s. Attractively presented on nice pages and in a nice binder. Ready for further building of the early issues.

U.S. Empty Booklet Covers 1.5-Pound Accumulation: I just cannot discard anything, and neither could the previous owner of this group. A 1.5 POUND pile off EMPTY U.S. booklet covers for stamp issues mostly of the 8-cent to 34-cent time period. There are hundreds of items here. There is certainly duplication, but since there could be varieties (paper thickness, printing color, etc.) of some of these booklet covers, the "duplication" should be checked. I have not sorted through these and for all I know there might be one still with stamps in it. What use do these have? Many people like to display in their album the inside and outside of both the front and back cover of each booklet. Take what you can use of this and pass the rest onto another collector. The price is nominal to cover some of our labor, but the shipping/handling in the U.S. will be in the $9-10 range.

U.S. Scott #1953-2002 (#2002b) Matched Set of Four Full Sheets: Set of four matched full sheets of the 1982 State Birds and Flowers issue, all plate number 22222, from each of the four corners. Presented in an attractive album with a very interesting (really!) small book about the development of the stamp issue. Brookman value is $45 per sheet; I normally sell individual sheets for $25. This set of four priced just as four individual sheets. One could search around for a long time trying to find a matched set like this.

U.S. Challenger Space Shuttle Flight 1983 Cover in Folder: 1983 Cacheted unaddressed cover franked by Scott #1909, the $9.35 Eagle, carried on the Eighth Flight of the Challenger Space Shuttle for 81 orbits of the Earth, August 30 - September 5, 1983. In the original souvenir folder showing spectacular photos of Challenger and an infrared image of the heating pattern of the wing during re-entry! A vital piece of Space topic postal history! These sold for $50-75 before the Challenger disaster, but this is not my specialty, thus I can offer at a low price. The pristine folder and cover. (If you wish to have in an original mailing envelope that was sent to an original purchaser, it may be available at the same price; just ask.)

United States 50 Years of Commemorative Stamps 1939-1988 Display Pages: A very interesting and attractive presentation that I have not seen before. I believe made by Fleetwood, each 13.5 x 10 inch page presents the commemorative stamps for the year (sometimes more than one page per year), with A MINT stamp (in a sturdy stamp mount), a brief description of the issue, and a reproduction of the first day postmark. A sidebar on the page has about 7 inches of interesting text discussing the stamp issues and the events of the year. Attractively presented with simple graphics for ease of reading and viewing. The pages are standard 3-hole punched, but would require a wide binder -- no binder present. ABOUT 100 PAGES! The total face value of the stamps should well exceed $75. I imagine that the original cost was probably at least $250! This would be perfect to show non-collectors how interesting stamps can be. It would be great for public displays and use in: Post office lobbies, schools, libraries, youth or senior centers, and anywhere that people congregate and have a few spare minutes to look at a display. Would also be really handy to support public talks about stamp collecting; the stamp mounts are quite sturdy, thus the pages can be passed around a group without concern of the stamps coming out. At this price, well below face value. you really cannot go wrong!

U.S. Naval Covers, Mostly 1934-1941: An eclectic selection of 17 different U.S. Navy covers. 14 are cacheted covers of 1934-1941 with different ship cancels, including U.S.S. Gamble, Undaunted, Breese, Cormorant, Blackhawk, etc., and commemorating launching, commissioning, shakedown cruises, and other events. A couple have minor toning, but are otherwise F-VF or better -- the vast majority are VF and quite nice. Marked cover dealer retail prices (which based on the estate these came from, seem to be at least 20-30 years ago) ranged from $3 to $15 each, and totaled $199! Overall a very interesting and historical group!

U.S. Space Covers 1965-1973 Collection (Gemini, Apollo, Skylab): Attractive selection of 28 different cacheted, unaddressed, early-mid space program covers including 1965-1966 Gemini program (8 covers); Apollo 4 thru 17, 1967-1972 (15 covers); and Skylab 1973 (5 covers). All pristine, fresh, and VF.

U.S. Contract Air Mail (CAM) First Flight Cover Large Collection: Extensive collection of 248 VF all-different Contract Air Mail (CAM) first flight covers, vast majority during the 1920s, a few later, virtually all with cachets. Thirty-seven different routes are represented, with a vast array of different legs on those routes. Some legs had extremely small quantities of mail carried, yet they have very modest values. All are sleeved and identified with AAMC numbers. Quality is excellent throughout. Pioneer air cover makers include Worden, Harvey, Dinnebier, Gorham, Bond, Landers, and many others. Many with better frankings including one with Columbian 1c 4-block, one a 2c Columbian Broken Hat, many 2c red blocks including many with plate numbers, also imperforates, a couple Washington-Franklins, many franked with early airmails, special delivery stamps, one with a 2c Pan-American, 5c Ericssons, one with a Canal Zone stamp used in California, etc., etc. Tremendous variety and terrific eye appeal! This appears to have been a collection that an experienced postal history dealer purchased and priced up, but it appears that he passed away before doing anything further with it -- I am guessing about 20 years ago. Labeled postal history dealer retail pricing totals $4677.50. While there is one here or there that I might have priced a few dollars less, there are dozens that I would have priced quite a bit higher! A very impressive assemblage offered at a very attractive price! This would be a terrific way to start a collection with a bang -- or great for a dealer at only about 25% of the labeled retail value! This is really a remarkable offering at less than $5 per cover, but containing many valuable covers!

U.S. Airmail CRASH Covers 1926-1929 Group: Collection of 7 different early Contract Air Mail (CAM) 1926-1929 first flight covers recovered from plane crashes. Includes AAMC numbers 26.5 (pilot killed), 27.2, 27.9, 27.10, 28.3, 29.6, and 29.10 (pilot killed). These are from an age when air travel was neither easy nor certain! These are from a collection that a dealer had priced up but never got the chance to sell (from the estate) and are labeled with the dealer selling prices (I am guessing about 20 years ago) totaling $280. In the current market, with increased interest in disaster and crash covers, these would now be priced around $400. All are in excellent quality and are very attractive with interesting frankings. The records of these disasters are a stark reminder of how dangerous it was flying the early airmail planes!

U.S. and Foreign Air Mail (FAM) First Flight and other Flight Covers Large Collection: Significant collection of 55 VF all-different cacheted first flight covers to foreign destinations (FAM), mostly 1930s-1940s, with a few later. Nearly all identified with AAMC FAM numbers and are neatly sleeved. Many early Pan-American Airways. Many trans-Pacific 1930s to Guam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, New Zealand, etc. Other destinations include Central and South America, Barbados, Bermuda, Syria, Nigeria, Gambia, etc. Enormous range of U.S. and foreign frankings -- many quite interesting. Tremendous variety and terrific eye appeal! This appears to have been a collection that an experienced postal history dealer purchased and priced up, but it appears that he passed away before doing anything further with it -- I am guessing about 20 years ago. While the dealer price total is substantial, many of the lower-priced covers would be double today and many of the Asian covers would be substantially higher today with strong demand. A very impressive assemblage offered at a very attractive price! This would be a terrific way to start a collection with a bang -- or great for a dealer at a low percent of retail value! A splendid array of early overseas first flight covers at only $5 average per cover, even though many valuable covers are present!

733772
U.S. Airmail Covers Signed By Pilots 1927-1931 Group: Selection of 13 different early 1927-1931 airmail covers sighed by the pilots of the flights. Most are first flights; one handstamped "postponed", one described as "delayed - Turned Back by Bad Weather." Excellent quality, all VF, with attractive frankings and great appearance. These are from a collection that a dealer had partially priced up but never got the chance to sell (from the estate) -- five of them are labeled with the dealer selling prices (I am guessing about 20 years ago) totaling $160. The other 8 I would price individually totaling another $160, for a grand total of $320! Some of these pilots likely did not survive their airmail-carrying careers. Terrific price as a collection!

U.S. Airmail Covers - Various: Widely varied selection of 48 different, VF airmail covers ranging from 1920s-1970s, but mostly 1920s-1940s. Most with cachets and a variety of interesting markings. Includes a 1928 Worden cover franked with a 1c Franklin imperforate 10-block, a 1927 crash cover, a 1941 first flight cover from Guam to Singapore, 1938 first flight to Bermuda, 1946 last day of 8c rate, and much more. Also includes a few CAM first flights and some various flight anniversaries. Excellent quality, all VF, with attractive frankings and great appearance. These are from a collection that a dealer had partially priced up but never got the chance to sell (from the estate) -- most of them are labeled with the dealer selling prices (I am guessing about 20 years ago) totaling $438, plus some unpriced. Many of the lower-priced covers would today be priced much higher. A total retail value today would likely be around $650. Terrific price as a collection at only $3 per cover!

U.S. Airmail Special Event and Anniversary Covers 1929-1946: Very attractive selection of 28 different, VF, cacheted airmail covers from 1929-1946, mostly 1929-1932, and commemorating flight anniversaries or welcoming aviators, etc. Aviator welcomings include three (3) for Admiral Richard E. Byrd (of Antarctic fame) and two for Fitzmaurice-Huenefeld (the first East-West Transatlantic fliers, as per AAMC Trans-Oceanic flight listing 1070). Multiple interesting frankings include plate blocks, 2c reds, etc. A couple covers are pilot signed. Excellent quality, all VF, with attractive frankings and great appearance. These are from a collection that a dealer had partially priced up but never got the chance to sell (from the estate) -- most of them are labeled with the dealer selling prices (I am guessing about 20 years ago) totaling over $150, plus a couple unpriced. Many of the lower-priced covers would today be priced higher. A total retail value today would likely be around $250. Terrific price as a collection at less than $3 per cover!

U.S. Airport Dedication Airmail Covers 1928-1953: In the early days of mushrooming air travel and airplane development, airports were being opened all over the country, almost on a daily basis. Having an airport was key to the economic growth of local communities and openings were major social and civic events. The AAMC catalog listing of airport openings fills 100 pages! Here is a collection of 45 different VF airmail covers with cachets or inscriptions of airport dedications. Many have better frankings: airmails, 2c red blocks, regular issue plate blocks, one with Columbians, one with Kansas overprints, one with a Washington-Franklin 1c booklet pane, etc. Some are signed by postmasters or other officials. Excellent quality, all VF, with attractive frankings and great appearance. These are from a collection that a dealer had partially priced up but never got the chance to sell (from the estate) -- most of them are labeled with the dealer selling prices (I am guessing about 20 years ago) totaling $363, plus a couple unpriced. Some of the lower-priced covers would today be priced higher and some of the most unusual frankings are priced far too low. A total retail value today would likely be $450 or more. Note that beyond just being airport dedications, all are airmail covers. Terrific price as a collection at less than $3 per cover!

U.S. Air Show Airmail Covers 1927-1938: In the early days of powered flight, there was great public interest in aircraft and pilots. There were air shows, demonstrations, and races held all over the country with large public attendance. Naturally covers were created for some of these events. This is a nice selection of 23 different VF airmail covers issued in conjunction with air shows, air races, aircraft demonstrations, air tours, air circus, etc. Some of the many sponsors represented include: AAMS, American Legion, chambers of commerce, Detroit Flying Club, etc. Many have interesting and better frankings: airmails, 2c red blocks and plate blocks, regular issue plate blocks, one with Washington-Franklin 1c imperfs of two types, etc. At least one is signed; at least a couple are actual named flights. Excellent quality, all VF, with attractive frankings and great appearance. These are from a collection that a dealer had partially priced up but never got the chance to sell (from the estate) -- most of them are labeled with the dealer selling prices (I am guessing about 20 years ago) totaling $118, plus one unpriced. However, several of these covers were priced much too low then and most today would today be priced higher because of the interesting frankings. A total retail value today would likely be $200 or more. Note that beyond just being related to air shows, all are airmail covers. Terrific price as a collection at less than $2.60 per cover!

Charles Lindbergh Airmail Covers 1927-1933: Collection of 19 different VF airmail 1927-1933 covers related to Charles Lindbergh, the legendary pioneer aviator. Includes a C10 first co cover with red, white, and blue Lindbergh stamp-label, 1928 Roessler cacheted cover with red Lindbergh portrait cachet, cover franked by C10a booklet pane single, Panama 1928 FDC, Cuba Good Will Tour, several CAM 2 covers with the horseshoe "Lindbergh Again Flies the Air Mail" cachet (one franked with a plate strip of 5 from the White Plains souvenir sheet!), 1929 Mexico City to Brownsville flight, plus various anniversary cachets, C10 on flight covers, one with label "Lindy carried this letter from Me to You", etc. Excellent quality, all VF, with attractive frankings and great appearance. These are from a collection that a dealer had partially priced up but never got the chance to sell (from the estate) -- most of them are labeled with the dealer selling prices (I am guessing about 20 years ago) totaling $443, plus a few unpriced. Many of the marked prices are too low in the current strong Lindbergh market. Including the unpriced items, today the current prices would total about $650. Note that beyond just being related to Lindbergh, all are airmail covers. Altogether a very nice tribute to the Lone Eagle -- and a very interesting collecting area... at an extremely attractive price!

U.S. Stamp Panels Collection: Collection of 34 stamp panels for stamp issues ranging from 1984 to 1996. These are somewhat similar in concept to the USPS Commemorative Stamp Panels, but I these were privately issued by the Postmasters of America company. They feature a large illustration relating to the stamp subject, a couple paragraphs of text, and the mint (NH) stamp issue. If the stamp issue is a single design, then a 4-block is present. If the stamp issue has 4 or 5 designs, then a block or other arrangement is present. The panels are vertically oriented, on cream heavy card stock measuring 10 x 13 inches. They are perfectly suitable for framing with an ample border to allow for matting and an embossed area around the subject matter. While these were made for sale to collectors, they are actually quite handsome with excellent artwork and overall appearance. Over the years, I have seen them sell -- and have sold many myself -- for between $5 and $10 each depending upon the subject matter. However, I do not have time to properly individually present these, so they are offered as a group for less than $1.50 each. The face value of the mint stamps in this group is over $36.00. The topical subjects include Winter Olympics (hockey), animals, birds, flowers. U.S. statehoods (several), African American history, Christmas (several, including Santa), cinema, football, Native Americans, Columbus, civil rights, U.S. history, and much more. These would be terrific to decorate a school, senior center, professional offices, medical waiting rooms, libraries, etc. One could even obtain just a few frames and then rotate these over time. [I do get others of these from time to time and I also have a few that duplicate what is in this collection, so let me know of there are any individual items or topics of interest to you.]

U.S. Christmas Seals Full Sheets 1930, 1932-1945 Lot: Collection of 1930, 1932-1945 Christmas Seal full sheets, mostly two sheets per year. When spot-checking all appear to be NH VF, though I did spot a couple sheets that had separations (there may be a couple more like that, but all look nice). Nice run of pre-war and WWII-era issues. All very fresh and attractive. Not checked for scarcer printer marks, etc. Nice group whether you are just starting out collecting these fascinating seals or are a specialist looking for varieties. Priced at far less than $1 per sheet!

Associated Stamps of the West - Roads to Romance Label Book: Collectible labels issued by Tide Water Associated Oil Company. The labels are almost all neatly adhered to the pages, as usual and as intended. Book is in excellent condition, with red book cover having owner name lightly written; the inside is in near-perfect condition. Spaces for 100 labels (#101-#200), ALL but #199 and #200 are present. Tremendous range of topics / thematics. I have seen these labels offered for as much as $5 each. Extremely collectible and very seldom seen now, especially in books. Total of 98 labels.

United States Presidents and First Ladies Historical Collections: Two large historical albums: The Presidents of the U.S.A. and The First Ladies of the U.S.A. These contain unaddressed covers with colored cachets picturing each president from George Washington to Jimmy Carter and each first lady from Martha Washington to Nancy Reagan, each with postage canceled at a pertinent location. The covers are neatly mounted on pages with extensive biographical write-ups of each individual. There are some tiny age spots on the extreme edges of some pages, but the covers and contents are otherwise uniformly VF. The first ladies volume is particularly fascinating. How many first ladies were named Elizabeth? Remember Harriet Lane? How many collectors who can name the presidents in order can tell you for which president she was first lady? Each collection is housed in a large padded binder with matching slipcase, making this a handsome addition to any American historical collection. Even better, the price is just a tiny fraction of the original subscription cost!
