U.S., High Catalog Extensive Mint and Used Collection, 1847-1999. A powerful collection in a 3-volume Scott National albums, loaded throughout with $500-and-up stamps; many the more elusive ones with highlights include (*=certificate) used: #1, 8A*, 12, 13, 16*, 21, 28, 64*, 67, 72, 78a, 91, 95, 100 and 1869 pictorials complete; unused (without gum or regummed): 14*, 22, 25, 37, 38, 39, 69, 76, 78b, 86, 88, 89, 92, 151, 152, 187*, 243 & 245; mint o.g.: 40, 66TC6*, 160 (straight edge), 208, 241* (toned gum), 311 & 315; and finally mint, never hinged: 65, several lower value Columbians, 288-290, 296-299, 302-308, 326, 327, 330, 340, 358, 369, 407, 500*, 524, 547, 579, etc., etc. The Airmails are complete less the 1929 Zeppelins (C18 is XF-S, NH), but the rest of the back-of-the-book is scattered and unremarkable except for a never hinged J49 ($125). Now for the catch: condition was not always the top priority; most of the aforementioned numbers prior to the Columbians have problems, sometimes not obvious, but often visible, most notably centering; beginning with the top middle stamp, everything is generally clean and F-VF and the collection is essentially complete and never hinged from 1929 onwards. A great lot for filling spaces or for an eBay marketeer. Scott value is well in excess of $65,000. Shipping charges apply - weight 18.2 lbs.
