Hello all. I just wanted to thank everyone for any advice they can pass along to me. I have received a large collection of old stamps from a family
Member and was unsure the value. I have had these for many years and am moving and want to part ways with them. I know the overwhelming majority of them likely have no value and are just old stamps. Some of the older ones I thought looked the most interesting I have posted below. I'd appreciate any feedback because as I understand it, the difference between value and not is something only experimenting collectors can identify. This is far from my area of expertise so any information I'd appreciated!

Hello. I'm afraid that these are penny stamps. No skiing holiday.

Thank you very much for the response! I figured as much but wanted to ask some experts what they thought! Thank you for the quick response. If you have any advice on next steps I'd appreciate it. I honestly probably have 500 of these and have no idea what to do with them.

As Geoff said, these are very common stamps.

Several appear to be damaged. Tears, folds, etc. As such they're destined for the dust bin.

Options: Start collecting. Donate. Toss.
