For the last 45 years I have been off and on stamp collecting. Mostly off until a couple years ago. However over that time I always was fascinated with Russia. Finally I got up the courage to go through this huge pile of loose stamps, album pages, packets and albums that had been thrown into a box all that time. I am just about done with mounting and have an estimated 4 - 5,000 duplicates. There are at least 2,000 different likely many more in the pile. There is a complete range of condition. Mint, MH, used, ( a lot of CTOs) complete sets etc. ALMOST ALL have Scott numbers in pencil on the back. The years are from the beginning to the early 90,s.
I am hoping to put these up for sale or trade in the next couple weeks. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Paul

Maybe mount on album pages and put on eBay as country lots?

Attached are pictures as best I could display them. The loose stamp pictures do not due the size of the pile justice. I counted out 100 in one of the pictures just for comparison. As I said almost all of the stamps are Scott numbered on the back. I still have about 1,000 left to go through and those will be added to the lot in the next week or so. Stamps range from 1860s to the early 1990s. It is end of the year tax time. I am wondering how a donation to APS would work? Would an estimate of $1500 to $2000 or more catalog sound right?






Thanks for your assistance

I'm among those who'd be interested in buying. I'm trying to put together an almost complete album going to about 1950.

Jimjamtwo. I am going to attempt a trade for more Russia. I suspect that these would not work that well for you as there are a lot that are after 1950. I will get back to you if the trade program does not work out. And as I write this I guess you are already 2018. Happy New Year!

Do you know any collectors from Russia? There was a math book published in Russia which was never sold overseas that I would like to get a copy of. As I cannot read or speak the Russian language so I'm not able to look at Russian used book site for it (if there is such a thing) I always thought one day I might run into a fellow stamp collector who would be able to help me. Hopefully today is the day.

I'd be interested in any Scott numbers before 850. I have several hundred mostly after 1950 that I could trade. I can send them to you if you like. PM me. Thanks! Wolf-==-
