I come across quite a few of these in making large purchases of stamps (kiloware) at what amounts to 3-4 stamps to the penny. At the same time, it is amazing to see what is offered on Ebay for $1.00. Although these are probably your parameters, you may not want to invest a lot of time in selling this item.
On the bright side, however, all collections have to start somewhere.
Welcome to the forum. Always glad to have another "voice", especially one with appraisal skills.
