After years of looking I finally found my grandfathers stamps in a wall, guess the box fell from attic down the wall. House had no real insulation so opening a wall I found it. Trying to get some info on some of these. I've been looking and don't think many have value but from what I could see maaaaybe 15-20 of them could be over 20.00 not to sure. Thanks in advance if anyone is able to help with better direction

It looks to me that the real value here is in family history. I see military ribbons and medals. The envelopes might tell you a little about what was of interest years ago, particularly if the contents (even just bills) are still with them. As to the stamps most appear to be common. However it is impossible to say without better pictures. All in all a cool find.

Yea the ribbons and all are going to be kept for sure. But if maybe one or two of these may help in funds to put towards fixing things in his old home for future generations would be nice. Trying times right now and just trying to find couple extras to stay afloat.

Chaney,

Great family history story. Definently worth more to you being it is family collection than any monatory value.

Collecting for the enjoyment of collecting, whatever that might be, is the name of the game. Don't hesitate to ask questions especially if you need basic information and especially more advanced sources of information for any possible topic. You should be able to find folks on this board a little further along on their collecting journey glad to share experiences. Russ

Having renovated a couple of old houses over the years, I know how you feel. There never seems to be enough time or money. Good luck with your project.
