This is my first post!
Some background: when I was a child I somehow inherited
a stamp collection from an old man whom I had never even met (something like a grandma's friend's neighbor's husband?). So now I've been revisiting the collection and have been wondering about the value of some of them.
This man collected stamps from all over the world, so I'll probably be popping up all over this forum.
Below I've attached some images of stamps from his American book that it seemed he had valued the highest in his lifetime.
If you have any knowledge of these things, please help!
(Two confederate stamps that I cannot seem to upload regardless of how many rules I follow!
One is an 1862 blue five cent stamp, the other is an 1863 "10 Cent")
