Classic American stamps come to Sam Houston Philatelics

Sam Houston Philatelics has announced their next auction will be on Wednesday, April 27th, 2011, closing at 1:00pm CDT. This sale is worth a look for all collectors from beginners to serious investors with material in all price ranges.

The sections include Early United States starting with the Classics, many with certificates. This includes a fine unused 1c blue type III stamp of position 26L4 with a 1993 PSE certificate. Its bright, fresh colour makes it especially covetable.
