The listings below are included by happenstance. If you are seeking a particular country or type of material, please let me know. Payment plans are available. I guarantee your satisfaction.

Due to the low prices, variations in weight, and different mailing methods, distances, and destinations, shipping cost is additional for items in the Specials Collections listings unless otherwise mentioned. When ordering please include a note in the shopping cart comments section indicating if you prefer faster/costlier or slower/cheaper delivery so that I may more quickly quote the shipping costs and options for you.

United States Commemorative Collection 1893-1946: Between Scott #230//944, 1893-1946 collection of 243 different commemoratives, mint and used, on White Ace pages in binder with matching slipcase. Condition varies: early issues are mostly used and in mixed condition; from about 1920 on is all mint, much NH and generally F-VF or VF. 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.

United States Collection Remainder on Harris Liberty Album Pages: Collection balance of about 550 different, mint and used, 19th century to 1980s, on Harris Liberty pages. This includes several high-catalog-value 19th century stamps -- these are in poor quality but qualify as reasonable spacefillers. I note numbers 69, 70. 73, 113, 189, etc.. There is also a useful range of mint (hinged) commemoratives of the 1920s-1950s. The pages run to 1989, but fewer stamps (or used stamps) after the 1950s. Quality is very mixed, with 20th century overall running much better than the 19th century. Scott 2019 retail for the 19th century alone is over $1000, plus even more not counted for stamps in lesser quality. This one should be very useful for anyone who is not too fussy about quality and likes to buy lots and collections at a very low percentage of catalog value.

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.)

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!

United States Scott #65 Cover Collection with All Different PAID Cancels: Collection of 29 1860s covers franked with Scott #65 [1861 3 cent Washington, Rose, No Grill]. That includes two examples of #94 [same, with F grill] on covers. Each cover with a different type of PAID cancellation, most covers F-VF or VF. All different styles and fonts of the PAID: straight line, arc, in circle, blue, in oval or chamfered oval, negative, complex, integrated with datestamp, with and without numeral 3, etc., etc. A couple of the covers have auxiliary markings ("missent" and "forwarded"). Majority are accompanied by a copy of a printed illustration of the PAID cancel annotated by type (not sure of the data source). Furthermore, most are accompanied by a data card indicating the information then known about types, scarcity, etc. Quite a few are noted as scarce or that the type is known only from one town, etc. All contained in an attractive cover album with plenty of room for additional covers. This collection is nice on its own, but it is also a great base for further development.

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. 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.]

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. If broken up and sold individually the value would be at least $200!

Star Wars Stamp [Labels] Album: An H.E. Harris copyrighted 1978 second edition 48-page (plus covers, saddle stitched) postage stamp album for stamps related to everything from astronomy to space to flying machines to rockets to moon landing, astronauts, etc. -- it does contain a couple dozen such stamps. However, the star of the show are the spaces on the inside of the front and back covers for 24 Star Wars characters labels (officially licensed). The labels are present and affixed in their spaces, but some were damaged when separating them (as a kid might do), but they generally look okay in the album. This is in good used condition; clean with just small one-each corner folds on the front and back covers. This is a somewhat hard-to-find movie souvenir and a good example of trying to bring youngsters into the hobby. I have only seen a couple of these and this is, by far, in the best condition I have seen.

United States State Birds and Flowers Commemorative Panels Collection: Scott #1953-2002, 1982 20c State Birds and Flowers, complete set mounted on 50 VF large commemorative panels in handsome green leatherette binder in nice, protective plastic sleeves. Each illustrated panel has enlarged picture of bird and flower, all original artwork by artist Richard Amundsen, plus descriptive text for each. A handsome enhancement of an already attractive and popular topical issue. This price is a fraction of the original subscription cost! The panels are also suitable for framing and other displays -- they are a great way to introduce the public to stamp collecting.

(The outside of the folder is discolored from the original shipping package, but it does not refer to Monroe on the outside; but the inside of the folder is fresh and bright.) 2) Marilyn Monroe commemorative watch with dial that is a "replica" of the U.S. stamp design. Leather like band. I have no idea of the watch works and am offering it "as is". Offered exactly as it was taken out of the original shipping envelope from ca.1996, with said envelope, etc. SHIPPING ADDITIONAL.

The Presidents of the United States of America Historical Cover Collection: A surprising interesting and attractive collection prepared by Fleetwood. Each of the first 38 presidents (through Carter) is represented by a cacheted cover postmarked in a relevant 1977 town postmark (such as birthplace). For each president, there is extensive, well-written text by David C. Whitney, and a portrait -- typically four pages per president. In total there are 222 pages, 3-ring in a handsome, gold embossed, deluxe binder in a nice slip case. This type of prepared collection can often be a little "over the top", but this is really nicely done and is very interesting and attractive -- you can actually read this like a book if you want. The whole collection (covers, pages, binder, and slip case) are in pristine, like-new condition. In addition to being an interesting philatelic subject, this is a terrific educational item. All this for just $1 per presidential term!
