United States Stamps
1 1 Beautiful example of the classic US #1. Three full margins with the fourth just touching at bottom left. Good color and a nice red cancel. A must have for every US collector! $220.00 $300.00
2 2 Very nice example of the 1847 10¢ black. Two full margins, right just touches at top, left into frame line. No faults and a nice red grid cancel. $350.00 $450.00
3 8A 1851 one cent type IIIa with PF certificate, one stamp from a strip of three. Clear margins on three sides, just into design at top (which is why this is not Ided as a type III). This is an example from plate 4, not placed in use until 1857. The imperf plate 4 stamps were only available from April to July 1857. 2010 Scott value $1250. $400.00 $600.00
4 12 1856 5¢ red brown, the tough one for a type set of the 1851. Three sides just touch design, the fourth is well clear. Light CDS cancel, tiny thin at top left. Scott value $825. $150.00 $220.00
5 13 Lucky 13, the type I 10¢ from the 1851 set. Three full to wide margins, cut into design at bottom. PF cert states 'it is genuine'. One of the tougher holes to fill in a US collection, this is a very presentable example. 2010 Scott value $950 $300.00 $450.00
6 14 1855 10¢ type II with good margins all around, very difficult to find on any of the 1851 set. Indistinct but light cancel and no faults. 2010 Scott value $200. $80.00 $120.00
7 17 1851 12¢ black, three full margins, into design at bottom. Small, old, hinge remnant, thinned at bottom left. 2010 Scott value $300. $20.00 $40.00
8 18 1851 1¢ Type I plate 12. Nicely used with light target cancel in blue, a $20 adder to catalog value. Super margins at top and right, cut into design at bottom and left. Photocopy of PF certificate, stamp is left one on image. 2010 Scott $720. $180.00 $250.00
9 20 1857 1¢ Type II, lightly used. Centered to right, cutting design at bottom, just showing adjacent design at top. Nice stamp for the issue. $75.00 $120.00
10 22 1857 1¢ Type IIIa used with light grid cancel. A couple of pulled perfs and a rounded corner don't distract from the clear break in the top frame line.. 2010 Scott value $550. $120.00 $160.00
11 25 About as good as it gets with this issue. Perfectly centered left to right, just down from perfect top to bottom giving a clear view of the top frame line. One short perf at top and a light cancel. Value has increased almost 5X since this was originally sold at a Heinrich auction. $50.00 $80.00
12 25 1857 3¢ Type I, clear example showing top frame line and no inner frame lines. Centered slightly to left, pulled perf at top. Lightly canceled. 2010 Scott value $125.00. $36.00 $60.00
13 27 Beautiful example of the brick red color of the 1857 5¢ Type I. Lightly canceled, centered slightly to left, with one short perf. It's tough to find these better. 2010 Scott $1800. $400.00 $500.00
14 28 1857 5¢ Type I red brown, lightly canceled with decent centering for the issue. Value has increased over six times since last sold (1991 Heinrich)! 2010 Scott $1300. $275.00 $400.00
15 29 Nice wide example of the 1857 5¢ Type I brown, centered to right and down. Clear grid cancel, tiny tiny surface scuff on perf tip at bottom right corner. Scott value $425. $80.00 $120.00

17 31 Nice example of the 1857 10¢ Type I. Centering to left and up gives clear view of the bottom of the design. A few short perfs & a pencil mark on reverse (I), yet well worth the estimate. 2010 Scott $1350. $200.00 $350.00
18 33 1857 10¢ Type III with nice red cancel. Centered to right yet clear view of the design shows breaks at top and bottom frame lines. 2010 Scott value $310. $100.00 $150.00

23 67 1861 5¢ buff used with typical black NYFM killer and faint red (maybe paid?) cancel. Nicely centered with perfs just touching at top. 2010 Scott value $1260.00 $375.00 $550.00

26 83 1867 "C" grill, only available on the 3¢ rose. Clear grill visible on front and back. Comes with a PF certificate "It is a genuine Scott 83 C Grill". The "C" grill is a tough stamp to find, reflected in its Scott value of $1200.00 (vs. $3.00 for the normal 3¢ rose). $400.00 $600.00
