M, opened for $10 and four bidders took up to $12.50.  Scott values at $50.50 in 2001 (Jul 01).

S B32 sheet I'm including this as much for the interest value of seeing what the sheet looks like.  This sheet of 25 opened for $190 and closed with no bids.  Scott value is $14 each, $350 for the sheet (June 00).
S B34-7 gutter pairs eBay described as "Complete set of 4 "gutter" pairs invisibly hinged. Rare. Very hard to find everywhere! Russian net catalog (V.Liapin, Moscow) $50.00".  Opened for $40 and closed with no bids.  Scott values each set of 4 stamps at $2.10 suggesting $4.20 plus whatever premium for the gutter pairs for the eight stamps total (June 00).
S B38 Said to be B38, MLH.  Opened for $50 and closed with no bids.  Scott values at $125 (Nov 00).
S B39 eBay described as MH.  Opened for $7.50 and four people bid it up to $10.80.  Scott values at $20 (June 00).

eBay described as MLH.  Opened for $10 and sold at that price (June 00).

S B42 eBay described as "Silver surcharged stamp tied to piece of envelope by FIRST DAY of ISSUE: May 1, 1923 Moscow (the same date is in the surcharge). The postmark is clear and legible. The stamp signed by USSR Philatelic Association (the best guarantee of genuinity). There is a photo certificate. The silver surcharge is postally fresh! (mostly on used stamps silver surcharge not safed and looks not clear). The best exemplar I seen for my 48 years expirience in Russian Philately. Can enrich any exhibition."  Opened for $500 and sold for that price.  Scott values at $350 (June 00).
S B43-7 MNH, opened for $5.50 and three bidders took up to $6.50.  Scott values at $5.25 and all three bidders offered over this (Jul 01).
S B47 A block of 4, MNH, opened for $5 and received 7 bids from an unknown number of bidders (eBay isn't fully working this morning!) taking it up to $12.72, ie $3.18 per stamp.  Scott values at $1.10 each for MLH - a premium was probably obtained not only for the MNH but also by virtue of the block of four with the selvage in the middle.  The sale was described as "with luft" - I don't know what that means but presume it means the selvage.  Plainly all bidders bid over the catalog price (Aug 00).
