N.Y. Islanders Stanley Cup Champions Rings
In 1983, the New York Islanders became the only U.S. National Hockey League team to win four consecutive Stanley Cup Championships since 1927, eclipsed only by the Montreal Canadiens, and placing them seventh in the line of great dynasties. During the 1980 through 1983 seasons, they won 19 consecutive playoff series wins, an unparalleled feat in the annals of professional sports. The Champions rings achieved 1980: $7,200 / 1981: $7,800 / 1982: $7,200 / 1983: $7,200.
The B.F. Miles of Peoria encased 5-cent stamp of 1861, of which there is an estimated 11 known, was developed as a means of commerce shortly after the beginning of the Civil War. The sale offers a Very Rare example of this issue. Now thanks to an eagle-eyed woman who literally saved it from the trash we now have a new discovery. Estimated at $4,000-6,000, the encased postage went for $7,200.
All prices include the buyer's premium.
