U.S., E.F.O. Specialized Collection, 1847-2012. In 42 Lindner albums (which if you consult the Encyclopedia Galactica, you will note 42 also happens to be "the answer to the ultimate question of Life, the Universe and Everything"). The collection contains approximately 7,500 EFO's (EFO's in blocks and multiples counted as the numbers of stamps with the error, ie. a sheet of 50 with perf shifts will be counted as 50 EFO's). Stamps carefully arranged in denomination order on generic Lindner hingeless pages customized for the various sizes and varieties of errors and freaks abounding in this collection. Unlike many EFO collections that seem to be more of an accumulation, this collection appears well thought out with an amazing variety of issues, from early classical issues, to just touching the earliest forever denomination issue and everything in between. Everything you can imagine you would find in an EFO collection will be here, various misperfs: with diagonal misfed perforations, foldovers, extra perforation rows, etc., inking varieties: overinking, under inking, ink spots, partial prints caused by foreign matter, some missing various colors and even the occasional albino, occasional printing errors, with splices or wierd cuts from foldovers and even the occasional guttersnipe (including a few interesting full gutters), etc. This is probably the most advanced collection of it's kind available on the market and should be viewed by anyone serious about building or adding to their EFO collection, some notable items include: 1 with vertical preprint paper fold, 11 with small preprint paper folds, 24 and 63 with dramatic preprint paper folds, 73 with slight perf shift, 114 single with preprint paper fold and misperf pair, 117 mint with slight perf shift, 220 corner strip of three with foldover, 230 corner margin strip of three with diagonal perfs, 231 corner margin foldover pair, 264 corner margin strip with extra diagonal perfs, a couple dramatic 296 vignette shifts, 298 with vignette shift to right, 401 corner margin foldover with double perf shifts, various Washington / Franklin and 1922 regular issue singles and blocks with various perf shifts, diagonal perfs and foldovers, 510 preprint paper fold pair with partial missing printing of bottom stamp, 530 pair with horizontal perfs shifted diagonally, 537 block of four with shifted horizontal perfs 40%, 633 and 634 imperf printers waste imperf pairs, 702 group of shifted cross singles and a couple foldover blocks, various 1938 Presidential and 1954 Liberty perf shifts and over/under ink errors, miscut booklets, gutter snipes, etc., 804 gutter pair, 806 freaky foldover error block of 20, 807 freaky foldover error with partial four stamps of adjoining pane, 832 plate block with dramatic vignette shift, many 3¢ commemorative perf and gutter snipe errors, freaky 1033 booklet miscut roughly into a triangle shape with perfs all over, 1117 with large dramatic foldover error, 1331-32 missing red flag on capsule, 1470b, 1500 block of 30 with dramatic black color shift, 1597 imperf transitional sheet from perf to imperf, 1622 full sheet with major foldover error, 1789c, 1845 dry print full sheet of 100, 1953-2002 misperf complete sheet, 2014a, 2194 $1 Hopkins with shifted horizontal perfs complete pane, 2276 complete sheet with multiple downward color shifts, 2618 diagonal vertical perf shifts, 2756-59 full pane with corner foldover error, 2863-66 pane with extra row of perforations at right, 2870 Recalled Legends pane, 4144a, various OIHO bureau precancel errors, C3 used, slightly shifted up, C3 mint slightly shifted down, E6 mint with large preprint paper fold, J61 used block with preprint paper fold on two stamps, three albums of postal stationery with miscuts, albinos, partial indicia, etc., group of used revenue stamps with preprint paper folds: R5c, R15c, R25c, R27c, R36c, and extra row of perfs: R13c, R41c, R152 and finally an album for various oversize items and errors used on cover, occasional faults should be expected (sometimes due to the nature of EFO's, like creases from foldovers, printer mangling, etc), but vast majority appear fresh and attractive with many great pieces that should find plenty of interest if you wish to break down for individual sale, generally Fine to Very Fine.

U.S., Old Time Collection 1845-1930's. Hinged into small old time Scott album of quadrille pages, with notation in inside front cover, from Daddy - 1930, and obviously assembled with love over many decades with deep emotional attachment to the original collector's childhood, contains many of the better key stamps, from the first issues, to the various early classics with a few more difficult shades, to the Columbian and Trans-Mississippi commemorative sets that are always so popular through to the Graf Zeppelin set (that we like to think may have been purchased as new issues). Highlights include, mint: 10X1, 30, 38 (appears unused), 39, 112-15, 119, 148, 230-45, 285-93, 328-30, 367-73, 658-79, 704-15 plate block set, C1-6, C13-15 and used: 9X1, 1-2, 9 (2), 12, 15, 17, 25, 27, 32, 36, 37, 67, 68-72, 75, 78, 86, 90, 92, 96, 98, 116-17, 119, 121, 134, 135, 138, 149, 151-155, 160, 162, 165, 190-91, 208, 217-18, 219-29, 276A, 312 and 523. Unfortunately, as with most of these old time issues, there are some usual condition issues among the classics and some gum problems among the 20th century issues as storage was not ideal causing some stamps to be stuck down, overall color seems fresher than usual and our impression of the collection is that sometime in the 1970's or 1980's, it was likely stuck on a bookshelf after the original collector passed and hasn't seen the light of day since to preserve the remarkably fresh color of the many of the issues, generally Fine to Very Fine appearance.
