Part of the disconnect here may be that @danko tossed out the $100 value in part based only on the few images that were posted, but the collection apparently includes many "albums" valued at $50K, the contents of which we have not seen. The prior posts are quite ambiguous as to the overall size of the collection. I have inferred that we are talking about numerous albums, but only a few representative images were posted.
no he didn't, anyone who has the slightest clue valuate what they see. and his chunks of wisdom was so far from reality and written with strong conviction.
the OP asked for an valuation not suggestions of what he would get for it, and he gave an extreme lowball offer that even a dealer who has to make a profit would top any day of the week.
the collection (what's shown) has few very nice objects that doesn't require much knowledge or time to handle. the rest of the stamps could be reassigned on new stock cards in about 30mins. And that's what a professional dealer would base his offer on.
So I took the album to my local stamp store last summer and his comment went something like this "if you had only brought this to me 40 years ago, but now unfortunately I do not need any more inventory"
This past weekend I brought the album to NOJPEX (northern New Jersey stamp show held at the meadowlands) and showed it to 2 dealers and an auction house. One dealer offered $2100, the other wanted me to give them a price when I was authorized to sell and the fellow from the auction house said he would start at $800 and hope it would reach $1500-2000. So with a little haggling between the two dealers I think I could see it bringing $2500 which is right at the low end of Rodgcam's estimate.
A couple of the dealers took note of two stamps that I had not posted pictures of in my original post, and since I know how the group likes pictures I am posting them now but in two separate threads "Glenhaven local" and "Used block of 4, Great Britain Scott #59"
