Hello. I am relatively new to the world of philately. I purchased the Di Vinci mint set recently and they came in 2 strips of 7 stamps. They wont fit in my Prinz album without separating them. Am I ok to do this or will it devalue the set?


Thanks in advance.

Hi Scott I know what you mean - I split mine into 4 groups of 3 to fit in and they looked OK - not sure if they'll devalue though regards Simonleonardo.jpg

Hi Scott ,

Nice stamps , to be honest almost all modern GB I would think will not increase in value much more than their face value over the next 10yrs + unless there happens to be a scarce one or a HV special issue .

So splitting them up won’t devalue them ( are you planning to sell them ?) I would just put them in your album in a way that appeals to you .

Now if you have QV or EDVII mint stamps in strip or blocks then that would increase their value , so if you have a corner block of penny blacks don’t cut them apart !

Have fun
