This was in the lot today, I think it is interesting...
I bought all my albums in Italy. It cost 35euro each. A very thick indeed.
Sorry got to screen shot them because im in mobile now.
Here is 1898 revenue stamps of the philippines
Got a weak signal, double post.
I have just got 29 Australian stamp yearbooks, any ideas the best way to sell them? As a collectors item or as postage without the books at a discount? Some of the books would be common but there would be some rarer ones in there too.
I got about 60% of face value when I sold one with the books
probably less hassle just selling the stamps at 60% of face value
Sold them on feebay for 1k minus fees!
What was the face value ?
I have a mate with over
$50K worth of face value with receipts from the 70's & 80's
He can't deal with parting with them
I only counted the face value of the yearbooks that said it on the front and that was $936 but I estimate the total face value to be $1200 - $1300 as the earlier books only had low face values.
Stamps are another form of fiat currency
Don't listen to anyone telling you not to collect stamps!
Especially if you love this hobby and if you're not collecting in order to sell later.
Stamps are already becoming RARE. I reckon, they will disappear together (or before) cash.
I've seen a lot of envelopes without stamps, just with mere stickers and bar codes on them. Stamps are rare relics and you should hold on to them.
Yes, if you want to leave a nice inheritance, then stamp collections are great!
Have fun and keep in mind that one day they will be VERY RARE and EXPENSIVE!
Wrong. They're works of art. They're in a way like old magazines or posters. No, not fiat, because they're more scarce.
Unfortunately, collectors are scarce as well!
