Gut impression ... the damaged stamps detract from the lot. It would be improved by discarding about 25%, and probably sell for more.

I have seen similar lots described as thus:

"A select treasure hunters grouping of many dozens of US classics, perfect for finding shades and cancels. A flyspeckers delight. Slightly mixed condition."

Hello commenters,

The lot ended today, here are the stats:

93 Views
2 Watching
3 bids
2 bidders

$2.25 plus 0.99 shipping

As it was stated, nothing spectacular in the lot, some damaged, some not. I always debate if I should save time and resources by combining many items in one lot as I did here.

I see the suggestion of removing the damaged stamps. What other specific suggestions do you have? Should I group by series? Should any of these have been listed alone (Schermacks)? Were my title and descriptions sufficient?

Best,

@Pascoe
