1857-1920, used selection, all premium quality, V.F. to X.F., 56 all different, all inexpensive (catalog values range from a few cents to at most $70), but all with outstandingly choice centering and mostly neat light cancels.

1857 issue: #35;
Banknotes: #146, 156, 161, 178, 179182, 188, 206, 207, 213;

1861-1992, six volume Platinum Series collection, not a lot in the first volume but more as each volume continues, volume 5 is nearly complete; the catalog value does add up and a few noteworthy items are a Sc #231 n.h., #257 (no gum), #412 pr, #C1-6, we have imaged all of the real catalog value on our website and the rest is more or less postage in the more modern era - of particular value are the Platinum albums themselves which retail for $1000+ (we noted a set exactly like this without any stamps sold on eBay in January for $780; a rare find indeed! Scott $3,413.
Estimate $750 - 1,000.
