    There was a young fellow on here about 5 years ago who was eager to learn about the hobby. I spent an entire evening going through my collection picking out dupes. Sent him a shoe box full of loose stamps. He hasn't been on here since, never got a thank you telling me he'd received them.
    That actually might be the best idea for them! Thanks!

    Rosecb,
    Looks like you have yourself a nice large collection. I sent you a pm with some information if you are looking to sell it off. Hope the info helps!

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    This is jut a very rough guesstimate based on the pages you've posted. I've collected and bought and sold stamps on and off since about 1980 or so.

    The pictures of the stamps you posted is pretty common material as far as I can tell ballpark if you went to a dealer is you'd only get about 5% or so of the catalogue value. I belong to several stamp clubs and most of them will make a free appraisal even if you are not a member as a public service.

    You may want to try that option. You could get a much higher percentage if you're prepared to get involved and learn the stamp hobby, business but trust me there's a lot to learn and it can be very time consuming what with cataloguing, putting the stamps in order and trying to sell them off piecemeal through various channels.

    Hope this helps you somewhat.

    Correction. There's probably 1000000 not 100000 stamps in this collection, at least 50k are in one box. Still looking for someone to do an appraisal if anyone knows of anyone in the Southeast. Again thanks everyone for all the input.
