Owner's Comments:
For 50 years the first six airmail stamps and the latter date Zepplins have been among my favorite stamps. I've tried to be very selective in picking them out without graded certificates to aid me. The range in grades shows how difficult these stamps are to find well centered AND properly graded. Each time I bought one of these stamps I was just delighted to have found a "keeper." One would think that it would be fairly easy to find them all in superb - grade 98 condition; but, that's obviously not the case. Thanks to the PSE for trying to standardize grading. I also collect the first six airmail stamps in well centered NH blocks. I'm looking forward to the day the PSE grades blocks! Then I'll really have something to show.
