Before I look at anything, why do you say that you sense it? Anything in particular?

jaynay - welcome the the stamp community forum!

You can go to the stampworld web page and look any of these up to see if there is catalog valuation, if that is what you are looking for.

Within 10-15 minutes at that site, you should be easily able to see if your sense is on target!

If all MNH should have some modest value, and a basis for a nice collection.

Especially the first page since all are inverts!

Lovely collection! That first page is very nice - they look MNH. :) I wish I had those in my modest Sweden collection. Enjoy those beautiful stamps!

All depends what you mean by "value," of course, unless your comment was ironic. At quick glance, each stamp looks to be worth a few cents, though you could probably get a Euro or two for some of them.

These would sell readily on eBay (here at least), albeit not for a large amount as the collection lacks the higher priced earlier material.

"All depends what you mean by "value," of course, unless your comment was ironic."

Not ironic at all. (I said "modest value")

Not everything has to be an 1851 classic to have value or be apricated.
These issues are nice examples of Sweden and others stamp art.

There is catalog value per Facit, and the booklet pairs are noted and a very fun and collectable area.

Be nice if MNH, but even if not, all have a place in a collection.
Not everything needs to be based on $$, especially in stamp collecting

With respect patg23, I was answering the op, not you. When first-time poster inquires about "value," it always means monetary not sentimental. They already know the sentimental value of something.

classic_paper - Thank you for the clarification. Apologies for the misinterpretation.

Still not ironic. He sensed it!

Maybe OP can give us a brief background and history of the collection.

sp (my bad)- apricated appreciated

Yes so, Hi guys, Im guessing Im the OP? What is that? Overpowered? :) Nevermind. Apparently me myself has no knowledge about these kind of collections, but I have to say though, the fascination and that lingering mysticism is all over me when just looking at certain stamps. Because the thing is that what youve been shown here is just a fraction of what is left of all the collections, single stamps in single folded beautiful plastic pockets. Several (at least 5) books full of different collections and so on.

We understood, perhaps immediately, that we need some help and then we found you guys :)'

I mean we HAVE taken a few glimpses each of every book with collections and what we at this time is certain of, is the sense of value..

Money is not the definition of value so lets keep the prejudices out of this.

With this said, what should be our next step towards finding both some sort of value and that it will somehow end up at the very right persons desktop or frontsteps. Im thinking personal collectors?

Tomorrow I will upload one more book and so on.

Thanks for your time. Goodnight :)

Jaynay - Allow me to cut through the fog. You are looking for someone to buy stamps from you. If value is not money than I will offer you zero and await delivery.

1) OP = Original Poster
2) you're not allowed to buy or sell on this forum until you've posted 50 times
3) "sense of value?" Any value other than monetary value is entirely personal, and you don't need our opinions for that.
4) check stampworld, eBay, or a recent catalog like Michel or FACIT (and then cut it by up to 80% for a sales price, depending on the issue). We're not going to do your homework for you.

jaynay -

In an online forum, OP means "original poster," but can it also mean "original post?", depending on who is using.

The OP asked a question on.....
In my OP I said.......

I would offer at this point in the discussion, your best bet would be to find a local stamp dealer (in Sweden) and bring your collection to them in person for an estimation.

The dealer should be able to tell you if a more in-depth appraisal is warranted. A quick look is usually free, a more thorough one will usually involve fees.
