I have a ton of the State of Ohio prepaid sales tax stamps, when I say a ton I mean it. For instance...I have; 345 1 cent stamps, 200 2 cent stamps, and 303 3 cent stamps.... I also have 6 cent, 9cent, 12 cent, 15 cent, 30 cent, 60 cent, $1.50, and $3 stamps. All of them are in excellent condition, they are still greenish blue in color and have both parts (the vendors stub and the consumers stub). I know that they are from the year 1949 or before due to the accounting sheet that was stored with them. Unfortunately my wife and I have ran into some serious financial burdens recently and I have to let them go. But I have no idea where I can sell them to. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Stamp Collecting Forum.

In response to your question about the Ohio Prepaid Sales Tax Stamps, they are an interesting collectible, but unfortunately there's not much value to them to collectors.

In fact, here's a link to 47 listings on Ebay where these items are being offered for sale, and even with the prices listed, no bids on any of the material has been placed:

It's something like the War Ration Stamps of World War II. They, too, are interesting to collect, but because of the millions of them in circulation, the resale value on them is next to nothing unless a collector is looking for a very specific item.

A simple cliche we may use on SCF is "old" doesn't necessarily mean "valuable". There are stamps from 100+ years ago that are worth barely a penny or two on the secondary market, while others are worth a small fortune.

They must be pretty common because I also have a 'ton' of them.
