I enjoy hunting for rare stamps hidden with in the general public. I feel many long lost stamps may be found this way. Regardless its fun for me. Must admit I Could use a great source of rare stamp information if anybody knows of a good site or any good source of information on this topic of rare, uncommon stamps I would appreciate your help thanks.

Texas 89.

Given this is your first posting, welcome. Trust you will the SCF to be a great information resource as well as source of philatelic camaraderie.

Evaluating postage stamps via internet postings can be problematic. However, based on a quick scan of the material you posted, nothing jumps out as particularly valuable. (In terms of catalogue value.). Most of what you posted are common stamps typically found in a beginner's collection. Perhaps other members will offer a different perspective.

In general terms, stamp condition plays a very important role re value and desirability. It appears many of the examples you posted include tears, missing corners, thin spots, heavy cancellations, etc. Such stamps hold little interest for fellow collectors or dealers.

What you shared can be considered "building blocks" for the start of a beginner's worldwide collection. Which is likely the very same place many of us on the SCF started.

Cheers.

Well that is brutally honest. Unfortunately for the OP there is little of value and much damaged as Cal mentioned. I notice there are several with tape stains that are quite evident with the brownish/yellowish coming through the stamps. Good beginners collection if the damaged was removed.

Ya this is someones collection given to me to try and sell, but you right. Lots of damage. They where in the worst condition when he gave them to me. So I understand these are of no value but I was wondering. What if they where in mint condition? If every stamp was free of damage, what would a collection like this be worth mint? Answering this questions wold relly give me some much needed insite. You see im still geting used to the scott catalog.

Texas/Brooke,
Why have you started two accounts under different names? You need to quickly clear this up before you get locked out.

From the forum rules..

If all these stamps were Mint mostly Never Hinged and in tip-top shape, then you'll be looking at something like $50 to $100 I think.
