Had this box in the collection since the 80s. All stuck on envelopes, NO cancellation marks, practically minty in appearance (ya I know it ain't "mint", want born yesterday LOL). Letters that were never sent/used so the stamps were removed and the envelopes tossed. Looks like I've got some decent eBay sales happening in the near future...

Ummm... perhaps not. Not sure how much of a market there is for modern mint w/o gum stamps.

Well, try selling some kiloware in eBay, and see how many pests ask whether there is unfranked material amongst it!

Never advertise it as mailing. Never do that or your gone.

Do not know about Canada but the US as far as I am told you can not be even sold as Unfranked, No Cancel it attracts the law's hand.

In Australia it can be sold as unfranked but not mailing.

Huge issues with people in Australia selling cleaned, cancel partly removed stamps as unfranked.

Now Australia because of this has put security die cuts on all new Self Adhesives issues.

Be very careful about sell in this area.

dkabq8 - no gum lots are sold on eBay all the time. At least for Canada. I know USA gets knickers in knot over "unused postage." Not in Canada. But - Paris collector - the re-use value is in 50 cent denominations and up. Your 8 cent stamps - used or unused - have zero value.

I'm NOT looking to use it for postage. I'm looking to sell my stamps on eBay just like everyone else. I wouldn't advertise it as postage. Strictly for the collector crowd.

EDIT: so friends, please suggest should I sell these on eBay, how should I list these stamps if they have no gum and no visible cancellation mark?

I think your words in your last post "no gum and no visible cancellation mark" are pretty accurate. If some are damaged, I would also include that information. You might want to include weight, or number of items in the lot.
