First Issue Balance. Imperforate stamps to $200.00, with many cataloguing hundreds of dollars each, various part-perforated, the perforated stamps lack only the 6c Proprietary and $25.00 Mortgage for completion, also some Silk Paper varieties, all with manuscript cancellations, slight duplication (often on the higher cataloguing stamps), somewhat mixed quality, a large portion Fine-Very Fine, the imperforate stamps catalogue about $13,000.00, counting only stamps with sufficient margins to be considered genuine, so there are some uncounted such as No. R53a with Weiss certificate as genuine, but it is doubtful real experts would certify it, and defective (but probably genuine) R79a, the perforated stamps catalogue well over $6,000.00, so including the part-perforated (which mostly appear genuine) and silk paper (which has several stamps cataloguing hundred of dollars each), the total catalogue value will be well in excess of $20,000.00
