"US Stamps" is as vague as one can get.
Does this mean "regular" US and not any of his proofs/essays or EFO's?

He did have a heck of an inventory.
I assume he lived in New Jersey where his business was located.

The 1st part of the Langs material is up on Kelleher and it's pretyy extensive and impressive. Can anyone go back and compare the eBay listing to the Kelleher estimates? I'd like to see that.

Browsing the catalog it becomes readily apparent that most of Langs stock will be in group lots as discussed earlier in this thread. Out of 28 currently listed Scott US 245's on Hipstamp only six made it to the sale. The same ratios hold true for many other issues. C13-15 accounts for 269 listings on Hipstamp but only 47 lots in this sale, two lots of which consist of groups of ten sets of C13-15 described as "ten selected for quality sets, ranging from Fine-very Fine to Extremely Fine, normal gum skips, ends, creases, a few with brushed gum to appear never hinged, o.g., never hinged, generally Very Fine or better, please examine."

I am still hoping Kelleher is sending some of the better centered ones for recertification and grading and those will then be in the December Part 2 sale.

How do you get to this auction from SAN? I don't see it there - I see it at the direct Kelleher link above, but not SAN. Thanks....

James - it usually takes a seller a day or two to get their auction up on SAN. It can take 3-5 days for Siegel's to get their sales up on SAN.

Lot 1989 "the "Friden" strip rare."
So rare that Scott values it less than the other two.

Here is a Q10 in the Langs sale that I found came from the Siegel 2016 Weinberg sale (Lot 1140):

On the Q10 block, I would grade it 'Fine', at best. Siegel's graded it fine. Kelleher graded it F-VF. The $275 realization in 2016 sounds quasi-reasonable. I don't see it being worth much more today, but the Covid-crazy-stamp-realizations may have something else to say on that.

Lot 1238 " vertical perforations strongly misplaced, leading to each row being imperforate-between"
Not. The perfs are completely within the left column of stamps making this just a misperf freak.

Lot 1276 "plate number strip of 6, o.g., never hinged, fresh color and blinding paper, miscut horizontally as well, Very Fine, only 100 pairs reported; plate pair/strip unpriced in Datz."
Horse manure. These are always miscut and ARE priced in Datz.
