    Hi Noah:

    Welcome to the exchange. The sample you posted looks like a beginners collection. Minimal value if you could find a buyer. Buying the collection indicates you had an interest in collecting. It is a good start. My recommendation would be to build and develop the collection as time and finances permit.

    Noah:

    The albums, if all the blank spaces were filled, would make an intermediate or even advanced collection. It's the stamps in them that make the collection. I suggest you go to your local library and check out a Scott catalog of U.S. stamps. The title usually is something like Specialized Catalog of United States Stamps. It will help you identify the stamps you have and what you need if you decide to continue collecting. I don't know how many stamps are in those two volumes, but $6 was not an excessive amount to pay. The albums alone would probably cost that much today.

    Noah, to me, this last stamp you posted might be old, but it was very common. It appears to be Scott number 65. It was a "workhorse" of its time.
