My mother started a stamp collection back in the 1970s, she inherited some stamps from her grandfather and has most of them in an ambassador album.
I don't know much about stamps, but looking at her collection of US stamps and comparing them to some similar ones online it looks like there may be a few stamps of value in here, problem is I'm not sure which ones are worth anything.
There are several hundred more stamps that are not pictured here, but we think these are some of the oldest stamps in the collection.
Not sure if there are any rare stamps in here worth noting, all opinions welcome.
Hi Guess Who and welcome. Nice start to collecting but I don't see much in way of value ... most of the stamps are very common that could be had for well under $1 each. Interesting "tiny tots" stamp in 4th image. I believe that is from a stamp collecting game available years ago. Your local library may have a Scott's stamp catalog you could look most of these up. Like I mention, a good start if you are interested in the hobby.
when I was little boy in the early 1960s (in the UK) one toy you could get was a toy "post office" I remember mine having "stamps" writing paper and envelopes. the sets probably cost as much as new halfpenny stamps and adult envelopes and paper. Those tiny Hindenburg stamps look as though they might be out of a toy post office. Due to hyperinflation I bet germany didn@t bother producing toy money at that time.
