Don't be too quick to assume rare stamps, as many, many are not. I just sent you an email. Please reply and I'll send you some instructions on how to work the picture uploading system here on SCF. Good Luck.

George sent me a couple of blurry pics which include the higher value US Columbians. I think we do have some value in this collection. I can't wait until he figures out how to post more. Be sure to use scans in the future.

George

The one with the yellow background (PF Cert) appears to have different margins than the one on the page. Possible the collector owned more than one?

George. The comments are that the certification is for one stamp, but the photo of the one in your collection is a different stamp. Therefore, the thought is that you have yet another $5 stamp somewhere else. It is also possible that someone bought a stamp many years ago and it was received with the wrong certification. That would be unfortunate. Once you are able to scan and post, please try working on the $5 stamp first. Lots of potential in your collection, by the way.

George Patrick; just wanted to follow up, but don't run out and sell these stamps if you have them. The photo that was posted are not stamps worth millions; but hundreds, and maybe in the $1000+ range. Just want to make sure you don't get taken advantage of; and you'll find a lot of experts here that will give you good advice.

Hope you keep them as a collection; but from the one photo; you don't have the typical common low-value stamps that are old but not worth much monetarily that is usually posted here.

Best of luck; and hope you can post some more photos.

It does look like George owns two copies of the 5$ stamp. This was attached to one of the photos that he sent to me. (I'm sorry that I didn't post it earlier.) So it looks like one copy is on an album page, while the other has been kept separate.

If you have these stamps, chances are you have other valuable stamps. If the collection is still together, I'd guess you have at least $10K worth of stamps - maybe more. By the time a US collector completes the Columbian commemoratives, he probably has a lot of the higher value stamps in other series too. Focus on the earliest stamps and the ones with the highest denominations. . . Do you have more PF certificates? If you just list them off along with the catalog numbers, folks here can give you an idea of the value.
