High Cataloguing Collection, 1847-1935. Offered intact as received, the best feature is the number of certified unused or original-gum stamps cataloguing thousands of dollars each, for example Nos. 12, 13, 33, 85B, 120, 139, and 144 all have P.F. or P.S.E. certificates stating original gum, and Nos. 67 and 85E unused, still others with different certificates (A.P.S., Weiss, etc.), there is still value in the non-certified stamps, though some of the classics may have cleaned cancels or are not classified properly, our estimate is conservative and takes all of this into account, Air Post include the Graf Zeppelin set, Postage Dues, Officials, and other Back-of-Book, also some proofs, including three 10c 1847 with crosshatching, a few blocks, such as a No. C3 plate block of twelve, mixed condition, very careful inspection is suggested to properly evaluate this collection, whose catalogue value will be enormous with even the most conservative method of cataloguing
