USA 1950 CA 3c Statehood Centenary stamps Blocks 4, signed by CA Governor etc - $A60[/size]

Cool glassine of fresh mint blocks I bought in that lovely Estate lot formed in California in 1950s. :mrgreen:

2 blocks multi signed by California Governor Goodwin J. Knight, one block signed by his wife, and one by his daughter Virginia Knight.

This signed card from Knight will cost you $A100 shipped and it not even stamp related! :lol: :lol: :lol:

https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Goodwin-Knight-d-1970-Signed-Card-Au ... 1251420306 - $A100 shipped

$A60 plus $A3 Tracked Global Post




Call it - "Knight Blocks : Stock 296JR" - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - https://tinyurl.com/GlenOrder

And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then often lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again. :twisted:



All payment details etc are on: https://tinyurl.com/GlenPay - NICE franking is used when I mail : see member pix of that franking here - https://tinyurl.com/GlenCTO - and COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money when buying more than 1 lot at once!

For overseas members, to find out the approx cost in YOUR currency, click here - https://www.xe.com - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, my prices are REALLY cheap in your money!

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet. :)

Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Administrator or ozstamps) here (or on my website https://glenstephens.com/rarity.html ) for sale in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer here, in case something else appeals:

And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to glen [at] glenstephens.com - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see: https://tinyurl.com/GlenBuy

As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers, and offer it here at *NETT* prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my *NETT* prices, as in auction!

Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - https://tinyurl.com/GlenRare and https://tinyurl.com/GlenSpec

Unless noted by me, all stampboards lots priced $A100 and under are generally mailed Unregistered and untracked at *YOUR* total risk, unless YOU specifically note otherwise on order form. I can often send them tracked mail - no compo cover on those. 1,000s of my transactions here for 10 years have been safe by normal post. :idea:

Orders over $100 are normally sent Registered (PO cover is to $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local, and minimum $A16 (~$US12) extra foreign, depending on weight. Only YOU know if your street or Apartment address is secure - a large packet covered in pretty stamps left outside, just might tempt passers-by? Only YOU know that, I do not. Mail contractors these days are often lazy, and leave packets on top of mailboxes etc in view of public, and/or out in wet weather etc. PO Boxes are FAR safer. :idea:

"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap at $A2 per $100 covered - and all are strongly advised to use this, and I will, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - https://tinyurl.com/Glen2-15 It is like Travel Insurance - decline that when booking your ticket, and THEN tell Qantas you really meant to take it 3 weeks back, and you now need to cancel your ticket with no nasty penalty please, and see how you go with THAT one! :lol: :lol:

As per stampboard convention - this lot is offered exclusively first to board members - and on no other sales venue.


For members who make a BANK TRANSFER or Money Order etc, you WILL generally get your goods faster, as it saves me some hassle - but you MUST email me the confirmation number etc - many "forget"! :)

My apologies for breaking the rules here, but for the sake of 100% accuracy, Virginia was Gov. Goodwin Knight's second wife. Goodwin's first wife, Arvilla, died of a heart attack in 1952, and he married Virginia in 1954.

He only had two children, daughters, Carolyn and Marilyn, from his first marriage. Carolyn committed suicide in 1970, and it is considered a contributing cause to Goodwin's own death several months later.

I would speculate therefore that these stamps were autographed post 1954. Goodwin and Virgina signing two blocks of four each - one block autographed across two horizontal pairs, and one block signed on each stamp individually.

Apologies again, please feel free to delete this post.

Ha . . well spotted - I had assumed Virginia was a daughter - not thinking of 2 wives. But hey it was CALIFORNIA. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Knight was Lieutenant Governor of California in 1950 when these were issued, but anyone's guess as to when signed. He was Governor of California up to 1959.
