There appear to be some nice stamps here, but condition is hard to evaluate as shown.Can you scan some of the higher value, higher CV stamps by themselves a little larger? Could be some very good stamps here.

Given you recent posts, it is hard to say. So my valuation is based upon these assumptions;
- you appear to have spent some money on certs
- you appear to have purchased many of these recently (in the last 2 years)
- you are looking to sell them one stamp at a time and not as a single lot

I would say that you will probably get back about what you have invested in them (+-10% given the cost of certs, shipping, selling costs, etc.)

Straight edges, toning, poor centering, and imperfections, will reduce the value of the stamps that have been shown in full.

The collection would need to be evaluated in full to provide a ballpark value amount.

None of the single image stamps above are worthy of certificates. As mentioned, all of them appear to have some type of issue.

Best to contact a local dealer or maybe if there's a stamp club local, someone can have a closer look.

I went to a dealer and he wanted to buy some on the spot I didn't sell cause I saw how anxious he got he dip stamp and did some testing then he told me for him to evaluate the collection he would charge me 125 per hour but I declined I then ask him about putting them in auction and he then stated you need a auction in the tens of thousands then if I change my mind for his service he would be right here and handed me a card and I left

Interesting dealer. Looks like he is trying to make a few bucks off your interest. As others have suggested, go to a local stamp club or stamp bourse for a quick evaluation. Don't take any offers, but see what they say. Oh, and do not get anything that you showed us certified. Not worth it for your possible return.

What's with the small pieces of card on each cert.? And why are they all undated?

Anyway, if your intention is to sell, I'd be inclined to send the whole lot to a reputable auction house.

Not sure what is being posted here. Are these some of your stamps that were sent off for expertizing or using examples of certificates that you think some of your stamps are? If those are your items on the certificates, must have paid an arm and a leg for expedited services. The Scott 4 and some of the pony express are the ones with some value. But, selling might be a wash now if you've paid to certify all of those.
