What can I do with my uncle's amazing collection of stamps collected in the 40s and 50s?

    I would keep them as it is something that was worth something to your family. Sometimes it is not about the money and what it is worth in value but what it is worth in your heart

    Not sure if this has been posited before but the Smithsonian Institution has a website with postal history and pics that is indexed VERY well... I am using it for a similar purpose -- I too am writing a couple of books using stamps as a central draw and how they relate to various locations.

    If you would like to donate some of your Grandfather's and Uncles stamps, the San Jose Stamp Club hosts Boy Scout stamp collecting merit badge programs at stamp shows in the SF/Silicon Valley area for over 50 boys a year (we've helped over 500 already. We also host youth & beginner activities throughout the year. I'd be happy to provide more details on request to bfj39@yahoo.com

    Look for a private email from me... I have a number of items I can send you if you give me a physical address.

    I hope you decide to keep them or if you dont want to then save it for another member of your family who might like it one day.
