Nice movie clip, but of no value to see what you have. You need still pictures for ID-ing.
Having said that, it looks like you have a common mixture there, but a very nice start to a collection.
Welcome to the forum,


Peter

What you have shown is a very unwise seller with no clue as to what they have. Anyone can ask any price for anything, but it is only worth what someone will pay for it. Look at actual sales to see what someone is willing to pay. What I see in that eBay listing is worth less than one penny. Check out some catalogs at your local library to get an idea of what the very best examples may be worth. But be aware that catalogs are mostly used to identify stamps, not to give reasonable sales prices. Good luck.

There are a lot of lunatics in the world. Some even act on the internet and ask ridiculous prices for common stamps. A high asking price on eBay does not guarantee rarity or value,

Rareness is determined by numbers printed and numbers preserved.
Price is determined by supply and demand. And then there are dealers and catalogue editors that "price" stamps. You will find prices realised tend to be much lower than catalogue prices. Many times, the catalogue price can be reasonable for a stamp that is difficult to find in good condition and you want some guarantee you are buying one such.

How sad! Read his remarks to this one.

I love the reasoning of the seller. I also love he wants to send an item that costs almost 100,000 by ordinary mail, probably in an ordinary cover.

When the seller gets $114,000 for that stamp, let us know.

There is a very rare stamp that looks like the pictured stamp (4 or 5 copies known). One tells them apart by perforation, watermark, printing method, subtlety of color. There were billions of stamps that look like it printed, and it is unlikely that your stamp or the one at auction is one of the rare ones. To learn mor go to stampsmarter.com
