Among the items not mentioned above are numerous issues with Scott value in the $75-$200 range. It would take years to assemble a collection such as this. Some were purchased individually at auctions (U66 ex Summers, U241 ex Lyons, U244 and U271 ex Schiller, W286 ex Ballman, U505 ex Summers, etc). Several with certificates. We strongly recommend viewing the PDF of this collection at our website.
