    Hello all

    I have seen 3 uncut stamp sheets that are from ww2. Im interested in maybe the value of these not what's on the stamp. They are swastikas on an uncut sheet. the women said they are from her family's estate. She also said from 1942. She selling for 60.00. What does anyone think of these stamp sheets

    Hello Charles, first welcome to the forum. Where are you based and which currency are you using?
    you do not show a image of the stamps that you wish to value, In what condition are they?, face value? colour?
    Are they similar to one of the stamps below?

    Can you post an image please.

    Regards, James.

    If I checked it correctly,the sheets would have a Michel-Value
    of € 470.-.This includes the extras for top and bottom stamps
    with theirs selvages.This is for the unwatermarked series of 1942.
    8 and 12 Pfg.were issued in the same colours on watermarked
    paper in 1934.Prices about double of the 1942 issue.
    Unless you may find an interested specialist who needs just
    these sheets,you might fetch no more than 20 - 25 % Michel,
    provided the gum is perfect.But it might not be that easy
    to find a buyer.

    Hello Charles, to add to Werners comments, I checked EBay prices, blocks of four appear to be fetching about €5 (without selvedge) and about €7 with selvedge.
    This would give 27 blocks at €5
    and selvedge blocks 48 at €7
    Total €471 which ties up nicely with Werners evaluation.

    Regards, James.

    Thank you. So at 471 isnt bad if i picked them up for like 50.00 correct. And would it be something to hang on to for years or just try and flip it?

    Yeah you can try, but nazi stuff in general is hard to sell and find a buyer. Also eBay might not let you sell it because it has "nazi imagery" on it

    You may think so,but quite the opposite is the case.
    In many countries outside of Germany everything in connection
    with the Nazi-symbols is in good demand.Very much so in the US.

    Unfortunately, What you say concerning interest for such material in the U.S. is true.
    Presently now, more so than ever, probably due to our current Political "situation".

    I have always considered third Reich stamps skillfully produced, i.e. engraving, printing, coloring, centering, and in most cases topics depicted, well done. I don't have a large Germany collection, but I include third Reich stamps as a part of the country's philatelic history. I also like British, French, Belgian, and Italian colonials while some collectors, I suppose, dislike them as they consider colonialism harmful to indigenous peoples and politically incorrect and should not be supported in anyway. Others don't like the political propaganda stamps of the Soviet Union and eastern block European countries, but they too are part of those countries philatelic history. I find many of the Communist countries "workers" philatelic series very interesting and I collect them. Bottom line, I guess, is one should collect what they want and if designs of, or symbols on some stamps are personally offensive, past them by. I don't believe, however, that stamps that are offensive to some should be denied a market venue because of their origin or design.
