Hey! It's your neighbour from the coin forum coming at you!

I picked up these 6 books from a thrift store and I'm wondering if they hold any value. I understand they contain every stamp released from that year. Just wondering if I were to re-sell them, would I do better removing the stamps and selling them separately, selling as a book or just using the stamps when I mail?

I also have the chance to get 7 more of the 2007 books.

I guess my final question is what could I expect resale wise per book. Is one book more valuable than the other?

Sorry if my newbie questions cause people to facepalm!

Please note it is vital to check what they are actually sold for NOT what the seller is asking. You need to look at auctions not buy it now listings

Hello. Here, the assumption would be around 40-50% of the face value of the stamps within. I suspect it's similar in Canada. I use this sort of stuff for sending out eBay lots - saves money on postage and avoids queues at the post office.

Just bought similar at auction. Paid 37% of face. With 18% buyers fee and 15% HST for Nova Scotia it came to 50% total of face. Great postage at half cost if you don't mind sticking on a couple of stamps.

Hi CanadaPennies19

Your 6 Annual Collections are catalogued as follows:
1995 $ 80.00
1998 $ 95.00
1996 $ 80.00
2003 $100.00
2004 $110.00
2007 $115.00

I only found one dealer which is selling three annual Collections as follows:
1981 catalogue $30.00 asking $24.95
1982 catalogue $45.00 asking $37.50
2000 catalogue $85.00 asking $69.95

None of the above answers your query to leave as is or to sell stamps separately as I couldn't find any 'SOLD" values.
