Yes, it is a great thread isn't it?! We have some very knowledgeable participants, who dwell among the gods. But don't let that scare you off, after all, you know what they say: ...just put your feet down child, the water is only waist high...

Have you already checked out our little gem of a Pierre Béquet thread too?

Hi N, Some post office promo material can be collectable. Eg, some people collect the posters advertising stamp issues which were put up in PO windows. We're not talking big money, but there's some interest.

Just signed up. I have just inherited my Grandads stamps, sorting through them and trying to understand what it all means and what shall I do with them!

Any advice / help / support would be great.

Hi Sonia,

Welcome to the forum!

In general, if you want to value them go to the library and get either our British Stamp Market Values (or you can always buy it...) for British stamps, or Stanley Gibbons country catalogues, and work what they all are.

Re: Gibbons catalogues - assume you'd receive anywhere between 30%-40% of listed price and bear in mind if it's just an ordinary collection, someone will probably just buy the whole lot for a (smaller) lump sum.

We don't value stamps, but we can help with tricky ones if you post scans - say a country name you don't recognise.

The chances are, they're not worth much and you can a) keep them and get involved in the hobby. :-D b) put them on eBay c) see what a dealer will value them at (use the Philatelic Traders Society website to find one near you) or d) give them to charity.

Hey Sonia.. welcome! I became a collector just because of the stories that stamps tell... start learning about each stamp, and why it was issued and you'll probably be hooked! Have fun! laugh

Hello everyone, I'm new here and this is my first post. I inherited a stamp collection which got me hooked and now I enjoy looking for rarities and errors

Hey Lisa... welcome! That's what we need, more of us Collector Chicks! What do you like to collect in particular?

Were you one of the bidders on the Guyana stamp the other day? After all, it's a rarity! laugh
