    I’ve inherited my grandmothers stamp collection so I’m new to this. Sorting through ive got no idea the worth. My husband lost his job so we don’t have any extra money for an appraisal. Any help would be so appreciated.

    Kelli, The stamp you are showing is a very common stamp that was issued in the early 20th century. There are several version of this stamp. More information would be needed to properly identify the stamp. Among the most critical is the perforations of the stamp and what gauge they are. You would need a perforation gauge to determine this. This would most likely tell you whether the stamp is very common or might need further identification. It is definitely not from a coil since there are perforations on the top and bottom.

    I will refer you to this website to further guide you in your search.

    I wish you luck!

    Hi Kelli,
    You would be better off getting a stock book specifically designed for stamps. There are several online stamp supply companies: Kenmore, Subway, Ihobb or Amos Advantage. Another option is buying stock sheets for a 3-ring binder. That is perhaps the least expensive option. Happy hunting!

    Hi Kelli. Yes, expensive pleasure... Especially in light of the fact that most postage stamps do not pay off the cost of evaluation. For this reason, there are many online catalogues (recommended price), but I advise to determine the price by online shops or promotions. That is, they show the real price (the one for which they buy and sell). I personally use in determining the price of the stamps this site:
