Please Read This Notice Before Bidding

Many of the lots in this auction are from the estate of Vermont dealer/collector John Hooker.  For lots with individual stamps or covers, we have provided condition information regarding faults. Large lots are sold as is and bidders should consider that, along with good items, some faulty material is to be expected with so many stamps or covers involved. Certainly there are treasures to be found and please note that most of the large lots have a recommended starting bid of only 10% of estimated value. Covers featuring fancy cancels are in mixed condition and it is the mark, rather than the condition of the cover or stamp that you are purchasing.  Most covers are fine.  If you have any questions regarding listings, please contact us.  Please check our Terms of Sale as well for all conditions regarding this auction.  Thank you. Jasmin Auctions
