H.R. Harmer, Inc. Sale - 3021
The "Argent" Collection of 1875-1901 Mint United States Stamps -
October 20, 2018
The “Argent” Collection of 1875-1901 Mint United States Stamps is limited
to only the United States stamp issues of the late 19th century. The owner
sought to collect each major listing (and several minor varieties) in as
high a quality as possible. The centering, the color, the perforations all
had to be top-notch for a stamp to make its way into this remarkable
collection. With less than two dozen examples known the Scott 205C is
certainly the highlight here, although a unique Scott 197 10c Special
Printing with double transfer at the top and bottom should also appeal to
those who require the rarest of the rare.
Individual highlights in the sale include:
Scott 197 var., 1880 10c Deep brown, Special printing, Double transfer
of top and bottom labels (Lot 604)
Scott 205C, 1882 5c Gray brown, Special printing, Extremely Fine and
choice in every respect (Lot 606)
Scott 240, 1893 50c Columbian, NH and graded XF-S 95 (Lot 632)
Scott 293, 1898 $2 Trans-Mississippi, NH left margin single with
Extremely Fine centering (Lot 695)
