Stanley Gibbons Stamp Catalogue Part 22, United States, 8th Edition, 2015.

Catalogue numbers SG 799 to SG 828 inclusive, and SG830 ($2) : 31 different stamps in total ( 829 not included).

These stamps are from a collection started by my Grandfather in circa 1901.

Most of these stamps have a pencil mark probably indicating  the Gibbons catalogue number. They all seem to be four digits different from the Gibbons numbers . Examples include the 11c with the Gibbons number of 812 which has a pencil mark of 816. The 20c has an SG number of 821 with a pencil mark of 825. Finally the $2 value has a Gibbons number of  830 with a penciled mark of 833, a difference of three!

We mention the Stanley Gibbons Stamp Catalogue Part 22: United States. These SG numbers are from the Eighth Edition printed in 2015.

All of these stamps are used (with varying degrees of postal marks), and at some stage have been mounted.

Some of these American stamps have hinges or parts of hinges. Others may just have adhesive marks left over from the hinges, and some are clear on the back.

Also several of these stamps have a penciled number on the reverse. These coincide, within three or four numbers, of the Gibbons catalogue numbers.

In conclusion, all of our stamps are unmounted mint and in an excellent condition. We will mention any variation to this statement.
