It will be interesting to see how much it goes for. I think the estimate is a bit low.

Anyone know the identity of "Gatsby," the pseudonym for the person whose collection this was?

Two weeks ago at BALPEX there was a five frame non-competitive exhibit entitled Pure Adulteration, which included oleo (both federal and state tax stamps), renovated butter, filled cheese, and mixed flour. The exhibit was more comprehensive than what is in the auction lot referenced here.

Wow. And that's not even from one of the rarer series, like this one.

I can assure you the estimates are going to be blown away very early.

I know, I was being a little facetious by saying "a bit low". I expect almost all of the revenue lots to go far above the estimates.

Revenuermd ------To try to answer your question --"anyone knows the identity of "Gatsby " ".

My guess, it is a person who was a stamp dealer in U.S. material. The collection to me looks like a REFERENCE COLLECTION more than just a personal collection . The reason is it was not a neatly mounted collection , it had many copies of the same stamp , he didn't care about the binders and used what came along ,It looks like it was accumalated over a very long period of time like 60 or more years .

I would like to see a article written about the owner and his impressive collection .
