The first collection received outstanding feedback. Before we describe this collection in detail, allow us to first say that this collection (and this collectors prior) are likely the cleanest collections that we have handled. This Specialized Collection is housed in 13 Green 3-Ring Scott Binders. As with the prior collection, each page was meticulously designed and produced by the collector on very heavy stock paper.
This was done so that each stamp had a perfectly sized place based on its size, format, block, etc. Under each stamp is printed its Scott Catalog Number, any Color or Type variation, etc. Here are the details that you would want to know. Of the entire collection is exceptional.
There is no fine print, no special notes, etc. This is a great collection with a lot of value. While this was intended to be a United States Specialized Collection of Postally Used Stamps , the reality is that many of the larger format sheets, souvenir sheets and panes are not available in genuine postally used condition, so the collector used Mint sheets/panes/etc. For these items (example is a Mint #630 hinged only in the selvage). The Album Pages are in excellent condition with no pencil notations or markings.
All the Scott 3-Ring Albums close perfectly, and the rings align precisely. Following a career as an Army Officer and Engineer, the Collector was commercial airline pilot.
His attention to almost obsessive detail is breathtaking. CONTENTS OF THE 13 ALBUMS ARE AS FOLLOWS. Here are some observations that should underscore the value in this collection. Although we included high-resolution scans of key pages, the following should provide even greater detail.Scott #8 Plated to Pos. Scarce #25A Plated to Pos. No Spaces for a #27, #28, #30, #31, #34.
