SPINK may not withdraw any lot after a call for bids has been made with respect to that lot, however, the consignor of the property included in the lot (or any other lot) may bid on and purchase the lot for his/her own account. If he/she does so, he/she must pay both the seller’s commission and buyer’s premium. 1. 2.

The placing of a bid constitutes full acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Sale by the bidder. The highest bidder acknowledged by SPINK shall be the buyer. In the event of any dispute between bidders, SPINK may, at its sole discretion, immediately put the lot up for sale again. SPINK’S decision shall be final and binding upon all bidders. A buyer’s premium equal to 20% of the successful bid price of each lot up to and including $2,000.00 and 15% of the excess bid price will be added to each invoice and is payable by the buyer as part of the total purchase price. All bids are to be per lot as numbered in this catalog. SPINK reserves the right to group two or more lots together and to withdraw, prior to call for bids, any lot(s) from the sale. Bids will be accepted in whole dollar amounts only, and SPINK reserves the right to reject any bid or advance the bidding at its discretion. SPINK may not withdraw any lot after a call for bids has been made with respect to that lot, however, the consignor of the property included in the lot (or any other lot) may bid on and purchase the lot for his/her own account. If he/she does so, he/she must pay both the seller’s commission and buyer’s premium. SPINK may have made advances and loans available to certain consignors and bidders in the sale. SPINK reserves the right to bid on any lot in the sale. Additionally, SPINK may or may not have financial interest in any of the lot(s) in the sale. All sales are strictly for cash, check and bank/wire transfer in United States dollars; However, SPINK will only accept cash payments under $10,000.00. SPINK offers clients the option of paying by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, and American Express only) in United States Dollars for a convenience charge of two percent (2%) for Visa and MasterCard and four percent (4%) for American Express, up to a total of $30,000.00.Credit card payments will only be accepted if (a) the purchase is made by the card holder, (b) any purchased items to be shipped are shipped to the cardholder’s verified billing address, (c) floor bidders present their credit cards and (d) all returns are governed by the terms and conditions of the sale. Payment is due and payable immediately upon receipt of the auction invoice or, if payment is to be made at the auction site, simultaneously with receipt of the purchased items. SPINK reserves the right to void a sale if payment in full of the invoice is not received by SPINK within fifteen (15) days of the date of invoice. A late charge in the amount of the lesser of 18% per annum and the maximum lawful rate will be charged on the invoice total if payment is not received within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice. All lots are subject to applicable state and local taxes, unless appropriate resale certificates are on file with SPINK.

All lots will be shipped via U.S. Express Mail to Post Office boxes, via Federal Express to street addresses, and FedEx ground for bulky large

lots (in the U.S. only). Purchases shipped via FedEx will not be covered by SPINK insurance in the event that the buyer has placed a “signature release” on file with FedEx. Buyer will be responsible for total purchase price in the event of loss. SPINK cannot be and is not responsible for the loss of any merchandise shipped outside the United States and therefore insurance on any items to be shipped outside the United States is solely the responsibility of the buyer. It is also the responsibility of the buyer to provide adequate insurance coverage for the items once they are in his/her possession. Risk of loss shall be borne by the buyer following shipment of the items and SPINK assumes no liability for merchandise lost, stolen or damaged while in the possession of a party to whom merchandise has been shipped. For international shipments, all duties/taxes/fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer. In the event a successful bidder fails to pay the charges due, SPINK reserves the right to resell the merchandise and the buyer agrees to pay for the reasonable cost of such a sale including a 10% seller’s commission, and also to pay any difference between the resale price and the winning price of his/her previously successful bid. SPINK reserves the right to require payment in full before delivery of the merchandise to the buyer. Bidder personally guarantees payment, and if a corporation, an officer or principal in the corporation agrees to personally guarantee payment. Title to any purchased items remains with SPINK until all invoices are paid in full. SPINK reserves the right to await clearance of any check used for payment before delivery of any item and a $25.00 charge will be applied for any check that fails to clear. SPINK reserves the right to refuse to honor or reject any bid which, in its opinion, is not submitted in good faith, or, as the case dictates, is not supported by satisfactory references, as SPINK in its sole discretion shall determine. SPINK further reserves the right to ban any bidder from participation in its sales for any reason deemed appropriate in its sole discretion. No minors may participate in any SPINK sales. Bids will be executed for mail bidders at one advance over the next highest bid in competition with floor and/or internet bidders, until the maximum bid is executed for the mail bidder, or until the lot is sold. No buy or unlimited bids will be accepted. No additional commission (except for the buyer’s premium) is charged for executing mail bids. SPINK cannot and does not assume any responsibility for errors made in the amount bid or lot numbers listed, so check your bid sheet and online submission carefully. When identical mail bids are submitted, preference is given to the first received. SPINK may reopen the bidding on a lot under the following circumstances: (a) SPINK has failed to execute correctly a mail bid; (b) A party purchasing the lot on the floor has done so in error; (c) Where a protest is made after the

hammer has fallen but before bidding has commenced on the next lot; (d) Where the auctioneer has determined that he/she has overlooked a party still bidding on the lot but before the calling of the next lot; and (e) At the discretion of the auctioneer. In the event of a dispute, the auctioneer’s decision shall be final. Agents executing bids on behalf of clients will be held responsible for all purchases made on behalf of clients unless otherwise arranged prior to the sale. The same protections applicable to SPINK shall apply to each officer, director and employee of SPINK unless such individual shall be convicted of knowingly and intentionally selling false or stolen goods. The descriptions provided in the catalog are intended solely for the use of those bidders who do not have the opportunity to view the lots prior to bidding. All photographs in the catalog are as accurate as can be reproduced with today’s technology; however, they cannot be relied upon for exact reproduction of color. All bidders who have inspected the lots prior to the auction will not be granted any return privileges, except for reasons of genuineness. It is presumed that all floor bidders have inspected the lots prior to bidding. Therefore, lots purchased by floor bidders are sold “AS IS” and may not be returned. Floor Bidders include those bidders acting as agents for others. Additionally, SPINK reserves the right to describe items differently than the descriptions shown in the catalog should such items be consigned to any future auction. All the lots are sold as genuine. For the purpose of this sale, “genuine” is defined as not faked or forged and SPINK will not knowingly sell any item that has been “repaired’, “restored”, “processed”, “cleaned”, “pressed” or “conserved” in any way without disclosure of such facts to the potential buyer. The following conditions apply to requests for expertization of philatelic items: (a) Mail bidders are asked to advise SPINK of any extension requests at the time of placing their bids; (b) Floor bidders must advise SPINK of any extensions in writing at the time of lot settlement; (c) SPINK will submit all items so requested by successful bidders to the reputable authority of their choice; For United States stamps, the Philatelic Foundation and the Professional Stamp Experts are the accepted authorities. (d) Purchasers of items submitted for expertization must pay as part of the purchase price all charges for expertization, including postage and handling; (e) Purchasers of items to be expertized must make payment in full immediately upon purchase prior to expertizing; Refunds will be made promptly for all sums if in the unlikely event an item is returned with a negative opinion; (f) Requests for expertization of stamps with certificates dated within the last five (5) years of the sale date will not be granted; (g) No lot may be returned due to a certification service grading a stamp differently than the grade stated in the auction description; (h) No lot will be accepted as a return from expertization if the item is indelibly marked as being altered or fraudulent by the expertizing authority; and (i) No lot will be accepted as a return, for any reason whatsoever, including extension returns, after four (4) months from the sale date. Any exceptions to this time limitation must be agreed to in writing at SPINK sole discretion.

19. No lots may be returned without a written request by the successful bidder and the written approval of SPINK. In the unlikely event of returning a lot, SPINK must receive notification of the buyer’s intent within three (3) days of the buyer’s receipt of the lot. The following lots may not be returned for any reason whatsoever: (a) lots containing ten or more items; (b) lots described as having faults or defects because of the faults described or any others, including lots described as “repaired”, “corroded”, “holed”, “whizzed”, or similar damage, except for non-authenticity; (c) illustrated lots because of centering, margins, etc. or other factors shown in the illustrations; (d) lots described “AS IS”, including third party graded coins or banknotes (i.e. PCGS, NGC, ANACS, ICG); (e) lots valued primarily for the bullion content; (f) lots examined by postal viewers; and (g) any philatelic extension lot unless the conditions set forth in Item 18 above is complied with fully. Except for lots placed on extension, as per the conditions of Item 18 above, no lots may be returned for any reason whatsoever after thirty (30) days from sale date. Late payment for purchase may, at SPINK option, be considered just cause to revoke all return privileges. If any disputes arise regarding payment, authenticity, or description between the bidder and SPINK, SPINK at its sole discretion, may submit the disputed matter to binding arbitration in New York, NY, to which the bidder, by placing a bid and hereby accepting these Terms and Conditions of Sale, agrees to be bound. 20. United States coins and currency will not, in conformity with the law, be opened at less than face value. 21.

No prospective bidder or prospective buyer shall have recourse as a result of any postponement 22. In the event SPINK refers an invoice(s) to an attorney for collection, the buyer agrees to pay SPINK attorney’s fees, court costs, witness fees and other costs incurred by SPINK. 23. THESE TERMS OF SALE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS, WITHOUT GIVING REGARD TO THE PRINCIPLES OF CONFLICTS OF LAW. THE SIGNER OF A SPINK BID SHEET OR PARTICIPANT IN THE AUCTION AGREES THAT EXCLUSIVE VENUE FOR ANY DISPUTE WITH RESPECT TO THESE TERMS OR IN CONNECTION WITH SPINK SHALL RESIDE IN A STATE OR FEDERAL COURT LOCATED IN NEW YORK, NY. 24. On-line Bidding — SPINK offers internet services as a convenience to our clients, but SPINK will not be responsible for errors or failures to execute bids placed on the internet, including, without limitation, errors or failures caused by (i) a loss of connection on SPINK or your end; (ii) a breakdown or problems with the online bidding software and/or (iii) a breakdown or problems with a client's internet connection, computer or system.

STAMPS ARE SO GRADED EITHER BY REASON OF GENERAL APPEARANCE OF IMPERFECT CENTERING OR A FAULT.

At all times any faults such as a crease, tear, thin spot, etc. will be specifically described. In collection lots and balances the condition described is meant to indicate the overall average to be found. Examples above and below the condition listed can be expected. Typically we do not describe minor perforation separations on blocks or sheets as these are quite normal and are not grounds for their return. In regard to covers, torn or partially missing black flaps, light filing folds and small edge tears, unless they affect the adhesive or markings, are not justification for the return of a lot.

CATALOGS USED The catalog numbers and catalog values of the contents of the lots, given in the descriptions, are from the Scott Standard Postage Stamp Catalogue, Volumes 1-6, 2013 editions, and the 2013 Scott Specialized Catalogue of U.S. Stamps and Covers. Where, by reason of the Scott Catalog not listing items in a lot, another catalog is used, and it will be named in the description of the lot.

ESTIMATES If an Estimated cash value is given, it is shown in the descriptions with the abbreviation “Est.” Estimates, which are in United States dollars, are used when a lot is large or when it is not listed in the standard catalogs. Our estimates are typically conservative and the lots invariably realize in the estimate ranges or higher.

1711 Queen Anne Broadside Proclamation Introducing Standard Rates of Postage for the British Isles and Overseas Colonies 24

1711 Queen Anne (1665-1714) broadside proclamation, with Royal Coat of Arms at top, the notification of an act of the British Parliament for the establishment of a foreign section of the British Post Office, printed by the Assigns of Thomas Newcombe, and Henry Hills, deceas’d, Printers to the Queens most Excellent Majesty. 1711.( 405 X 475 mm)It is the only example in private hands, The relevance of the act, and the important document stating it, was that it revolutionized communications not just in Great Britain but also farther afield, between the United Kingdom and British dominions and territories. This new post office act was highly important as it introduced standard rates for the calculation of postage in the British Isles, as well as setting out the rates to be charged in the colonies. With only minor changes, the principal structure of these rates remained unchanged until the great postal reforms of 1837. The proclamation states, “..That from and after the First Day of this instant June, there be One General Letter Office and Post Office Established in the City of London, from whence all Letters and Packets may be with speed and expedition sent into any Part of the Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, or to North America, the West Indies, or to any other of Our Dominions or Territories, or to any other Kingdom or Country beyond the Seas; at which said Office all Returns and Answers may be Received.” A full transcription accompanies. This act also stated that the post office had to pay £700 each week into the Exchequer to “carry on and finish the present war.” These payments continued for many decades after the death of Queen Anne. The War of Spanish Succession lasted for virtually all of Queen Anne’s reign, explaining the demand for additional funds from the post office. The document is of huge historical importance, not just purely philatelic history but of British history. The document is in a very fine state of preservation, gem museum quality and should be an important acquisition for a postal museum on either side of the Atlantic ocean (photo)

Full Rigged Ship illustrated postmark, fresh folded letter with integral address leaf datelined “Whampoa (China) April 5, 1834” to Capt. William Allen at Salem, Mass. and endorsed “pr Globe”, entered the mails with red octagonal “Phila/6/Oct” datestamp and manuscript “39” rate, plus a mostly clear strike of full rigged ship postmark, very fine; a new discovery, being one of only two “full rigged ship” handstamps applied to a cover from China, the other being the example sold by us as lot 1172 in the auction of the Floyd Risvold collection on 27-29 January, 2010, which realized an impressive $62,500.00 plus the buyer’s premium. The Globe was an early American merchant sailing vessel and a predecessor of the Clippers, with an average speed of not over three knots per hour. A “slow boat to China” in other words. It is said that the Globe “would beat her head three times against a billow and then fall off and sail around it.” This cover arrived in Philadelphia after a long and tedious journey of almost six months and was carried on the same trip as the Risvold example.

#512b, 12c Claret brown, perforated 10 at bottom variety, an amazing mint example of this enormously rare stamp, possessing the best centering of the known mint examples, large and balanced margins, fully intact perforations, o.g., l.h., light facial scuff affecting the color only, otherwise very fine; accompanied by a photocopy of 1980 PF certificate for a block of four, this being the top right stamp. The certificate is important for establishing the census of the mint examples of this rarity as<D these four stamps are believed to be the only known mint copies.<Q Apparently the nature of this error was not known at the time the certificate was issued. It has this unusual description: "Block o 4, right vertical pair perf.91/2 between, left vertical pair perf. 10 between". The reason for this unusual description is the perf. 10 is perf. 1081on the Kiusalas gauge, which is close to perf. 91/2. Furthermore the left pair is only partially perforated 10. The left five holes are the normal perf. 11 and the right five holes are perf. 10. Not recognizing this when they tried to gauge the left pair they saw that it gauged differently overall than the right pair and thus their description. But this block also establishes that each of these four stamps is a different variety. The top right stamp (the stamp offered here) is perf. 10 at bottom, The bottom right stamp is perf. 10 at top (offered in 2011 as n.h. by Siegel Auction Galleries) and the top left and bottom left are partially perf. 10 at bottom and top respectively. Current census of 512b shows twelve used stamps. The number of mint known are only four, all of which are substantially different varieties. The stamp offered here is a great rarity for the WashingtonFranklin specialist. 27,500.00

“Amelia Earhart” autograph on 1929 National Women’s Air Derby cover along with the autographs of five other aviatrixes, three adhesives making the 5c airmail rate are tied to cover to New York by “Santa Monica/Calif./Aug 19, 1929” duplexes, violet “National Women’s Air Derby/Starts Aug 18, 1929/Santa Monica, Cal.- Cleveland, Ohio” three-line cachet, very fine; this air derby, dubbed the “Powder Puff Derby, was the first major air race that brought women pilots into prominence, they were eager to receive the the recognition and respect that the men held; the race took nine days to complete from Santa Monica, Cal. to Cleveland, Ohio and of the 20 women that started the race only fourteen completed it, of the six that did not complete the race Marvel Crossen died in a crash on the second day which almost resulted in the cancellation of the race as some in the press tried to contend that women were not able to fly, but this only made the women all the more determined to prove themselves and the race went on; this cover bears the autographs of the first four pilots in the standings of the heavy class of air craft: Louise Thaden, Gladys O’Donnell, Amelia Earhart and Blanch Noyes in that order, plus Phoebe Omlie and Edith Foltz of the light plane finishers; a most extraordinary documentation of this historic air race and of women in aviation; it is quite possible that this is the only know example with all of these signatures.

#9LB1, Williams’ City Post, Cincinnati, Ohio, 2c Brown, pen cancelled example of this very rare city carrier stamp of Cincinnati, on attractive cover to West Elkton, Ohio, a town about 40 miles north of Cincinnati, Red “Cincinnati, O./Apr 16/Paid 3” c.d.s. at lower left and matching straight line “Paid “ at top, stamp has slight scuffing and soiling at top, otherwise very fine and certified as a genuine usage on this cover: C.C. Williams was appointed and commissioned by the Postmaster General to run this city’s carrier service, he apparently required that carrier stamps be used for the service, either this semi-official stamp or the general issue government carrier stamps, the usage in this case was for delivery to the mails with the 3c postal fee to Elkton being paid in cash as indicated by the handstamp pmk., the normal carrier fee to the post office would have been only 1c, but this stamp was used for this specific service on another outbound cover, whether the sender overpaid by 1c or they were only charged the proper carrier fee in some other way is not known; this is one of only seven or less known genuine usages, most of which were for local delivery in Cincinnati making this an especially rare and interesting usage; 2013 PF certificate.

#1L3, Adams & Co.’s Express, California, 25c Black on pink glazed surface cardboard, full sheet of 40 with full large selvage, small flaws at the extreme edges of the selvage including two spindle holes, otherwise very fine and an impressive sheet; this was probably not placed in use as a postage stamp but it is believed to been used in the saloons in early gold-rush California and received the nickname of the “Poker Chip” stamp.

#2L3, Adams City Express Post, New York, N.Y., 1c Black on gray, an uncancelled single on an 1850 stampless cover out of the United States through Halifax to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, both towns postmarks on the reverse, it is believed that this stamp did not originate on this cover, but the local stamp is genuine possessing full even margins all around, small edge tears at top left; all four different stamps of this local are very scarce to rare but this 1c value is listed but unpriced either unused or used, we have only found one other offered and its margins are decidedly inferior compared to this and also having small faults, thus an extremely rare local can be obtained from this cover; 2013 PF certificate.

#11L3a, Berford & Co.’s Express, New York, N.Y., 10c Violet, horizontal Tete-Beche Pair, used with 10c Violet (#11L3) vertical pair on cover addressed “For Lieut. Madison Rush, U.S. Ship ‘St. Lawrence’ Valparaiso”, the address tying the vertical pair, both pairs with large margins, docketing on back “Recd. at Valparaiso, March 21st, 1852”, wonderfully fresh and very fine . There are only three tete-beche pairs of the 10c Berford & Co.’s local stamp known. The example offered here and another cover (to the same addressee) containing both the other two known pairs, so in reality only two tete-beche pairs are available. In fact, any 10c Berford & Co.’s stamp is a rarity, as there are believed to be no more than eight items in existence, with only three certified covers extant, those being the two above mentioned covers with tete-beche pairs and four cut-to-shape singles on one cover. Therefore this is not only an incredibly rare opportunity to obtain the tete-beche pair, it is also one of the very few occasions that any 10c Berford & Co.’s stamp on cover will be available. The Scott catalog specifically lists and prices this very cover at $67,500.00, which represents the realized price ($62,500.00 + 10%) in the 2003 Robert A. Siegel, Inc. auction of the “D.K.” collection. This marvelous cover has graced some of the most important local and postal history collections of all time, including Worthington, Caspary, Lilly, Golden, “D.K.” and Cunliffe.

#65L1, Essex Letter Express, New York, N.Y., 2c Black on red glazed surface paper, unused as are all known examples of this issue, mostly large margins for this just touching at top left where there is a light corner crease, otherwise very fine for this rare local; this local has an interesting history that relates that three or four former letter carriers of Boyd banded together, issued stamps then dissolved with the proceeds, though covers are known with uncancelled examples of this stamp there is some question as to whether these were ever placed in use; signed E. Stern and accompanied by a 2013 PF certificate. (photo page 92)

#69L7, Frazer & Co., Cincinnati, Ohio, 2c Black on blue, uncancelled example of this very rare stamp with typically tight margins being just in at bottom, affixed to an embossed Valentine cover to a Mr. John L. Whitestone of Cincinnati, small unobtrusive edge tears at top of cover not mentioned on the certificate, otherwise very fine and an immensely rare genuine usage on cover; the Frazer & Co. stamps are all very rare and they have been problematic in determining genuine usages on cover because like many locals they were often left uncancelled or cancelled by small manuscript marks that did not tie the stamp to the cover, Scott often makes value distinctions in these various types of usages, however on this particular value Scott does not list it on cover of any type, also our search could find no other certified covers for #69L7, so this may be the only certified genuine usage available on cover; 2013 PF certificate.

#75L1, Hale & Co., (6c) Light blue, mint partial sheet of twelve (3x4) being the three left rows of the sheet of 20, o.g., hinged in the selvage and h.r. on the center pair of the right row, the rest of the stamps are never hinged, mostly clear margin at right and full large sheet margins on the other three sides, each stamp has the control initials “AB” of Amos Bates, Amos Bates was the Hale’s agent at New Bedford, Mass. and he placed his initials on stamps sold out of the New Bedford office, we are aware of one such cover with this control marking, light creases and wrinkles due to the fragile nature of the paper and some toning spots that are mostly in the bottom selvage, fine; large multiples of the Hales issues are actually quite rare, there is a full sheet of #75L5, the issue with address removed, but that is the only value for which any sheet is known; this multiple is not only remarkable for its size but for confirming Amos Bates initials as a control marking on this issue; a rare and important exhibition piece for the Hales & Co. collector.

Jay and his cousins in 1887 as Jay’s Dispatch and was then changed to Richwood’s Dispatch operating in 1888-89 to take mail to and from the post office in La Hoyt from Richwood, a distance of about three miles, Richwood was rather well populated area and had no post office so the local residents were happy to have this service which saved them the trek into La Hoyt; 2013 PF certificate.

(#5L1), plus over 20 multiples in various size blocks, there are over 35 covers of proper usages and 23 mint and used postal envelopes of various companies and even a few proofs, there is much too much to list everything that is found here but we note numerous better items as D.O.

A, watermark inverted, an incredibly rare used example with portion of “Wagga Wagga/?7 JL 28” c.d.s, fine centering; there are believed to be only about a half dozen used examples of this variety recorded, prior to 1972 there were no others making this a great rarity, at that time and after at least three mint sheets of the watermark inverted entered the market making it much more available in mint condition, however the used examples retained their miniscule quantity making it a major rarity in used condition (Scott #72 var.).

ACSC #190, 3p Greyish blue, Die I “White Wattles”, block of four, fresh, o.g., never hinged, fine-very fine; this variety comes from the earliest printings of the copper plates, the first ink used had a tendency to be removed by wiping the plate from the fine lines of the design giving it a more washed out appearance especially in the ornaments at each side of the head (wattles), the ink was immediately changed making this variety quite scarce (Scott #170 var.).

ACSC #192, Die IA, mint block of four, exceptionally well centered, o.g., top pair l.h., the bottom pair is never hinged, choice very fine and scarce; changing the ink helped the printing of the stamps from the Die I plates but after printing most of the stamps from these plates they were retouched producing a small quantity of what are called Die 1A impressions before plates from a new Die II were place into use, these impressions are even more elusive than the “White Wattles” variety (Scott #170 var.).

Kent”, a wonderfully fresh and choice mint example of this extremely rare and popular Queen Elizabeth period error, well centered, o.g., never hinged, extremely fine; according to the note in the Stanley Gibbons catalog, “it is believed that No. 216a came from a sheet which was first printed with the centre of the 21/2d. and then accidentally included among the supply of the 6d. value and thus received the wrong frame. there have been seventeen reports of stamps showing the error, although it is believed that some of these may refer to the same example,” in addition some have been hinged by collectors who did not realize that they had an error when they received it as a new issue or otherwise compromised; 2012 RPS certificate (S.G. #216a; £40,000).
