About a month ago, I posted in the inherited
forum and showed the box of stamps that my 74 year old neighbor gave to me. His friend was a stamp collector and died and his brother gave my neighbor the stamps.
I went through a bunch and haven't put a dent in it. I became discouraged because one, I couldn't find anything that wasn't common and two, there were too many versions of the same looking stamp.
So I quit for a while. But decided to go through them again but with a lot more knowledge than I had before.
I found some good stamps, some from 1860's etc but one thing I didn't pay attention to was the back of the stamps. His collection of good stamps got mixed with the rest and as a collector, he wrote the Scott number on some of them. Here's just a sample.
