What Makes this Stamp Great? by Matthew Healey, (full article), (video), (catalog)

Analyzing some of the phenomenal 1869 Pictorials in the upcoming Rumsey sales.

There are certainly some very great stamps in Schuyler Rumsey’s sales coming up in a few days at the big summer stamp show in Sacramento. I could probably do many episodes of “What Makes this Stamp Great?” just looking at the Peter Iwate collection of classic United States (big PDF here), particularly the 1869 Pictorials.

Matthew's article covers a lot of ground, from background, to grading and populations, thoughts on asking for regrading, and then a focus on one of the covers. I am providing a video demonstrating the Free Search and Extended Features searches to gather historic price and relevant information from the StampAuctionNetwork database. And I am a musician and I watch Rick on an occasional basis.
