No sugar coating from me, Locate a dealer like anything else, Google, eBay or here, just so ya know 99% of all stamps grandpa, auntie had or some stamps found in the attic will not be worth.................... It is what it is. Old stamps don't mean automatic big money. Old stamps are usually just old stamps and newer stamps are just stamps. You will need to search on your own as most dealers will evaluate your holdings in less than 1 minute if you do not know what you have.

Since you are so close I would contact the APS in Belfonte, PA. I'm sure they can either direct you to a local dealer or provide some direct advice. http://stamps.org/Home

Welcome Crist Clapper, Well I myself have Grandma's stamp collection and have recently found 6 sets of 7 little records from Bhutan she had purchased, from around the 70's or so. I have sold 2 sets of them on E-bay for 300.00 dollars a set. She also purchased hundreds of plate blocks and sheets from around 22 cents up to 32 cents. For some strange reason they sell. I'm currently going thru the old U.S. stamps and have found some that have a small value. I still haven't gone thru any of the different countrys yet. Its a very fun hobby. "A teasure hunt, is a treasure hunt". Keith

That's a great suggestion and yes!, the A.P.S. in Bellefont PA. will help point you in the right direction! (it's pronounced BELL-FONT) NOT- Bellefonte, Harry...lol Also take that advice from fredcdobbs very seriously and do the legwork! There are treasures to be found but you must know what you are looking for or, like many many times in the past they will be passed right over without notice. Know what you have and be realistic in stamp values as opposed to te outright Scott catalog value. Hope this helps some. -Jeff
