I always visit in determining if an old stamp has a value.

At the moment I'm collecting thematic and country specific. In terms of themes it's butterflies, dogs and paintings. For countries I'm collecting South Africa (including pre union), Hungary and also Nyasaland.

Hi all, new to forum and was just looking for a bit of advice. Tbh I know very little about stamp collecting but have been doing a bit of research which led me here. I have in my possession a large bag of stamps still stuck to envelopes. Appear to be from lots of different countries and all around 60's or 70's. My question is what is best to do with them? Soak and start a collection? Sell whole bag? Potentially are they of little value?

I'm looking to raise funds to have my garden done and any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum Tony.

Impossible to assess value without seeing the details but probably not much. Some stamps are better still on envelope so don't soak them off without getting them checked. At the moment that will be difficult but in six months maybe....

A bag of Chinese covers from the mid sixties showing the thoughts of Mao might get you a new garden, but I can't think of a lot else from that period!

Thanks for the reply Paul. I haven't looked at them in over 10 years and just looking around the internet there is a lot more resources available. Will get them out a have a good look. If no real value then Will prob donate to someone that may get a bit of pleasure from them. Will keep you posted
