    1940's first day covers. Value?

    Wondering if anyone has any thoughts on possible value of this stamp collection of 1940's era First Day Issue and First Day Covers. Dates range from 1944 to 1949 and stamps are mostly 1c to 6c stamps. Have not counted them all but there are probably somewhere between 150 and 200 of them. If these were yours and you were going to post them on eBay or CL what would you be asking? Sorry for the sideways pics but if you click on them they view correctly.

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

    Mr. Digger,
    I had a collection similar to yours. What I did was to look up the value of each cover in the Official Blackbook Price Guide of United States Postage Stamps (First Day Cover section).
    I then donated the covers to the Boy Scouts of American Stamp Collection Merit Badge counselor. I requested and received a proper receipt (required by the IRS) then wrote off the total value on my tax return.
    i thought the kids would get more value out of the collection than I would with the cash proceeds from a sale. BTW, the valuable covers were issued in the 20's and 30's.
    Don......
