U.S. Collection, 1851-1923. Extensive and valuable collection on Scott album pages, early issues are a mix of used and unused, 1851-57 including unused Nos. 9, 26, 30A, 33, 36, 37, used Nos. 7 and 12, 1857 Reprint Nos. 40 and 44, 1861-68 also with several unused stamps including Nos. 97 and 98, Bank Notes largely used until the last issues, from the 1890 Issue forward all stamps are unused, including 1890 complete, $1.00-$2.00 and $4.00-$5.00 Columbians (faults throughout these), 50c-$2.00 Trans-Mississippi, 1894-98 Bureau Issues are unusually complete with every space filled by an unused stamp including the dollar values (see below for comment on identification), 1902 Issue with 15c-$5.00, seven different booklet panes of No. 319 and its sub-listings, Nos. 323-327, Washington-Franklins including Nos. 331-342, eight perf 12 coil pairs, some of which are genuine, 1c-2c Bluish, Nos. 397-404 complete, later Washington-Franklins essentially complete through $5.00 (less the rarities), No. 505 error in a block of nine, Back-of-Book with E1-E11, Offices in China complete, Hunting Permits complete for about the first 30 years, condition is mixed with faults to be expected on many of the better stamps, gum condition is hard to assess as the majority of stamps are locked in "coffin" mounts and would take substantial time to verify, a spot check found some regummed and no-gum early stamps but based on other material from this estate it is likely that many stamps have original gum (for the same reason the watermarks are not verified for the 1894-95 issues), overall a Fine and valuable collection worth review, see our website PDF for a complete scan
