US Stamp collections, plate blocks, 1st days


Two items for sale:

The first is:
Private Collection/Lot of First Day Issue envelopes. All have addresses written in pencil on them but are otherwise in great condition. I could not fit all of them into the binder which comes with this lot. There are extra sleeves as well. All Issues are in protective plastic sleeves with holes for a two ring binder. At least 120 issues of all kinds from the 1960s to 1970s.

Smoke free, pet free home.

Asking $199.00 or best offer. I can provide additional pics.




Second item:

Beautiful plate block album of US Postal Service stamps, incomplete but most are there, mint, protected covers. Face value 103.56.

The third pic from the left shows a block of stamps from the late 1920s. The others to the right are from later decades. TOTAL 456 plate blocks.

NOTE: A number of plate blocks are missing from the decade of the 1930s. The decades of 1940s, 50s, and 60s are much more complete. There are some missing from the "United States" section that comes after the 60s.

NOTE: #1012 and #1014 are signed by designer, as well as by those who did the picture eng. and lettering.
