I've got a collection of envelopes with stamps like these from West Germany. All have postmarks from the early 1960s. I know virtually nothing about stamp collecting, and I'm curious about these, especially since West Germany isn't around anymore. Are these used stamps worth keeping?
Many early period West and East German stamps have decent catalogue values and are priced accordingly, from the first stamps issued after the Occupation stamps, 1949 to around 1956. After that prices are mostly very reasonable. Germany is a huge topic, from States to Empire, Reich to Occupation, West & East, Berlin, Colonies and Re-united Germany. Popular with many collectors.
