My name is Jim and I have to admit that I don't consider myself to be a stamp collector, but I would consider myself a "stamp accumulator".
I've been a coin collector since the 60's, but have been accumulating stamps since the mid 70's (to the tune of several hundred foreign and domestic stamps) I like the history, but have just never been able to get into the whole stamp collecting thing.
However, my wife and I are trying t reduce the "junk" in our house and recently came upon her deceased father's stamp collection. He really didn't have a lot, but when I came upon his German stamps, I thought he might have something that has some value.
As soon as I get the time, I'm going to take them to one of our local Coin and Stamp shops and have them looked at there, but figured I'd post some pictures here to see if I can get any ideas what to expect when I go see them. I very much appreciate any help that I receive!
