Hello all,

I recently acquired about 130 stamps in envelopes labeled "Historic Stamps of America" that also come with an info card as well.

I tried googling more about them and found (correct me if I am wrong please!) that they are part of a 200 stamp collection, with most info coming from current eBay listings.

Does anyone know where I can find a complete list of what should be in this set? I would like to know which ones are missing, but the eBay listings I've found don't contain any info on what the collection contains.

Thank you VERY MUCH for any info or guidance you can provide!

The Postal Commemorative Society (PCS) sold these things as "heirloom" collections which were filled on a subscription basis so how many stamps or covers each one has depends upon how far the subscription went. PCS has changed several times and is now PCS coins. The stamps in their offerings were common and the albums are heavy to ship and add no value. There have many such products produced as "investments" or "heirlooms" and are neither. You could use the stamps for postage.

I have not found a list but it would be much cheaper to buy a whole set of 200 in the album for around $30 than to try and purchase 70 covers separately if that is your intent. I have seen these albums sell for $0.99 plus shipping at auction. Not worth it.
This listing shows all 200 covers.

Wow, I got that horribly wrong
I was thinking Cinderellas.

The collection is budget, but the shipping, whew!
