Hello....


 


I personally would not pay that much for what looks to be very common material often found listed at below face value.......If you're just getting started collecting you might want to think about collecting used material.......you can get many more for your dollar.....mint stamps look nice but they are just waiting their turn to do the job they were created for.........traveling on covers as postage.....here's one listing I just found that you might like......If you only want mint material that is your choice....but I have found some wonderful items and great pleasure collecting used materal.

Unfortunately there are many dreamers out there who think they can sell these for much more than they are actually worth. 


 


There are certain circumstances where buyers will pay a little over face for 3c stamps - this is usually when they are in plate number blocks of 4 - usually you will find you could sell them for around 110-120% of face. However for singles this is not the case. 


 


I have a stockbook which is full of the 3c and up values which I just use on my mailing as I know that way I am going to get full value from them. I also have a vendor who sends me packages on a regular basis, one side of which is always covered in 3c stamps.

Of course I'm sure you know by this lot that you purchased - 200901593798 - that stamps do not sell for over face value.

Thank you for the information. One question, what is "hinged" mean?

Hinges are small glassine pieces used to stick a stamp to an album page.  When a stamp is "hinged" that means one can still see the mark left behind.  Hinging causes a disturbance of the original gum on the back of the stamp.

From that lot you bought, you 'may' get face value for the 3c part sheets and you 'may' get close to face for the $1 stamps but the rest you'll be lucky to get around what you paid. Still you have a good amount of postage which should last you several years.

An easy way to identify and estimate a stamp's value is to just 'Google' it. Once you id the stamp you can then to to your library and look it up in one of their books, or like our libraries have free online research tools that you can use to value stamps and a lot of other things.
