I won a Zeppelin cover in yesterday's Langs auction. That same cover is still listed on HipStamp this morning. Hopefully, it will arrive in my hands after payment is made.

I won an item today at Kelleher, that is still up and listed for sale on both Hip and eBay (a 5 times what I paid for it I might ad). :-)

Wonder if the withdrawn lots were sold at Hip or on eBay.

Easy enough to crosscheck the withdrawn lots with Ebay/Hip and settle the question of "possession".

Kelleher seems to have gotten a lot more realistic about their estimates - at least for today's session. Less than 1/2% of lots came in under the low estimate range. 29% came in at the low estimate itself. Didn't bother tracking number / value of lots over the high estimate.

And because I can't let sleeping dogs lie, checked on the so-called ribbed paper 375 on HipStamp today which was still available at about $1,100. This same one stamp was passed in the Kelleher auction (lot 2876) because it couldn't even get $100. Following is the answer I got to my question about the stamp:

Very creative pricing given that this exact same stamp was PASSED yesterday at Kelleher when it couldn't get $100. Do you have the stamp? How old is the cert? And does the cert actually say ribbed paper which is not recognized by Scott after the late 1880s.

And guess what - it has NOW, finally been removed from Hip. Given that it wasn't sold AND it isn't with billsbargains any longer, can we conclude that it is, in fact, owned by Kelleher?

Kelleher frequently makes deals after the auction on passed lots. Coogle always says "that one is available" and/or "see me after the sale if you are interested". Who knows. This entire thing was a hot mess that should not have been IMO. Clarity would have gone a long way but when there is no clarity there is usually a reason.

Watch eBay for a ribbed paper 375 to surface that you recognize. LOL

Just to close the loop on my Zeppelin cover, I received it on December 31 (it took 12 days to go from Connecticut to New Jersey via certified mail). Everything was in good order, but the cover is still listed on the HipStamp site as of this morning. If you act fast enough, you can buy the cover at 15% off the regular price!!
