eBay described as used block of four.  Opened at $5 and four people bid it up to $20.50.  Scott values each stamp at $3, or $12 for four (May 00).

eBay a set of 15 sold as a cancel collection.  Opened for $1 and six people bid up to $83 (ie $5.53 each).  Note that one stamp has a curious cancel/overprint in Cyrillic "ODMB" that might have added to the value of this otherwise ordinary set.  (July 00).  Two people bid over catalog value.

Note to the above.  I was contacted by the high bidder, who provided information on why he bid at this premium level.  Apparently not only was there the cancel that I observed, but a bunch of other fascinating things that true specialists would appreciate.  He writes "There were many things about this lot that I found interesting - Numerous nice SOTN red cancels, one brown cancel, several straight  (boxed, unboxed, and manuscript)  line cancels (including the one you mentioned above " Holm"), but  my main reason for the high bid - two examples of Postal Fraud (re-used stamps).  The fact that this lot came from the Faberge collection did not hurt either."  I'm chagrined about overlooking the Faberge reference, but suspect either he recognised the stamps or discovered this via direct communication with the seller, because I don't think it was referred to in the auction.
