A German relative of the family has just past away and we have just made the journey from the he UK to Germany to pay our respects and view the estate that has been left. We went to view the house and we were astounded to find a 5 floored house with one floor dedicated to stamp collecting. The collection was apparently 70 years in the making with our relative passing at he age of 94. I have never seen anything quite like it and I would appreciate any opinion. There is at least 700 folders with most of the stamps unmarked. The photos are just a small part of the collection which is all in folders and is sorted into countries

Hi Gary

for something like that you need professional help! If you Google stamp auctioneers in Germany I would give one of them a call. Depends where the collection is but I have dealt with one of them & been happy with the result. Happy to PM details. The reason I suggest this is they will have a better market for German material and are used to dealing with large lots. Shipping it all to the UK would be expensive and give potential customs issues.

Alternatively turn over a floor of your house to stamps and join us collectors!
