Shades incl 1861/62 12¢ (2), 24¢ (5), 1861/66 5¢ cott #79 (4) & 15¢ Lincoln (4, plus proof on thick cards), 24¢ (Scott #78a & b) & 1867 grills 3¢ (2), 12¢ (damaged) plus 1869 & 1870/71 types (low vals), no grill 12¢ (3), 15¢ (2), 30¢ & 1873 "secret marks" types to 30¢ (+ damaged 90¢). Also 1890/93 30¢ "no triangles" (2), 1893 Columbian Expo to 15¢, 1895 "triangles" to 50¢ & type 1 of $1, 1898 Mississippi to 8¢ x2 & 10¢ x8, 1901 Pan American with extra 5¢ & 10¢ plus 1904 commems to 10¢ & 1912 2¢ block of 25 MUH/MLH (#406).

No high cat items but solid with shades of many 1930's/40's with later predominantly used but 1990's with many sheetlets/panes of 25, booklet panes & corner blocks MUH. Post-2000 weaker with majority machine-cancelled. Interesting info on the 2¢ "Black Jack" but no stamps. Also a 2011 Scott specialised catalogue. Very high cat. value in pre-1910 but most are average hence conservative reserve. Heavy lot, buyer must collect on the day.
