    I'm new here and I have recently inherited a very, very large stamp collection. New, used and mint.

    I'm excited to learn more about each one and I'm also interested in taking it up as a hobby rather than making a profit from it.

    If anyone has any advice for a newbie, would be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone is looking for a particular stamp I could try and help.

    Hello Atanas,
    Stamp collecting has a great calming effect on the soul, get away from those winter blues. We have a wide knowlege base on this forum, ask questions, I'm sure someone can answer any question.
    Regards, James.

    That's good news and HELLO! Most people would try to get rid of the collection and it is always great to find that there are interested people our there wanting to appreciate their collection and perhaps turn it into a hobby of your own.

    Hi everyone,
    It's nice to know my efforts are appreciated somewhere. It would make me too sad to get rid of them for such a small price as they have meaning to my Mother more than anything. Plus, as you said it could be a relaxing hobby. It's just an expensive outlay for new albums though which I was hoping to avoid.

    I too have recently inherited. Stamp collection. In contrast to the OP I have more hobbies than I need already and know nothing about what I have in my possession. Is it acceptable on this forum to share some photos and discuss the best way to work through selling them? Thanks

    Hello HG? first welcome to the forum. By all means share some photo's, you may find buyers on the forum or you may get advice on the best places to sell.
    I find that a good sales tactic is to arrange your stamp offer in date order and a nice clear scan (not photo) that way potential customers can quickly access your offer and place a bid. Fuzzy - out of focus - angled images - and piles of stamps do not attract good prices.
    Regards, James.
