    1857-1944, Extensive & Valuable mint Collection. (Original Gum - Hinged). A fairly substantial collection of essentially mint United States stamps housed in a beautiful old Scott National Album replete with several hundred issues from most issues and periods far too numerous to describe in detail: however we noted (mint unless otherwise indicated) a VF 5c (10 X 1) reprint, followed by a good selection of the 1857 1c, 3c P. 15 issues with pairs, 1861 issues P.12 with a number of 1c & 3c, a good selection of the succeeding "Banknotes", mainly lower values but several VF or better examples, Columbians to 8c with shades, a good selection of the 1895 Bureau issues to 10c with several shades, Trans Mississippi 1c-4c including MNH blocks of the 1c & 2c, a good showing of the 1902 issues to 13c with several additional shades also pairs, coil pairs and imperforate varieties , Louisiana Purchase incomplete but including a block of the 1c, (two MLH & 2 MNH), and the Pilgrim issues to 2c including blocks. There follows a fairly extensive showing of the most of the Franklin - Washington issues to the $1, including blocks, pairs, coil pairs (some questionable) strips and varieties, Panama Pacific P.12 to 5c, & P. 10 to 2c with plate number singles, 1922 Regular issues P.11 complete to $2 Capitol Hill, Kansas Nebraska complete, plus a block of the Kansas 6c MNH and fairly complete thereafter including Parks, Prexies to $5 etc to 1946. Finally an interesting selection of BOB issues, with sparse airmails, but fairly extensive Special Delivery issues, Postage Dues, Parcel post, both Coast Guards, a selection of Officials, Guam 1c - 50c & 10c Special Deliver, some Canal Zone, Motor Vehicle appears complete, Newspapers PR 114-125, Potato Tax R1-13, Silver Tax 108-120 all mint, $5 War savings, mint small grease spot and much more, including in addition a brimming Scott National album with 1000's of less expensive issues. All in all a very interesting group with specialist material & high catalog value. Fine to Very Fine... From the Emerald City Collection
