Jessica,



you have several problems:-



1) your spelling sucks



2) your grammar is even worse



3) we have no idea as to what you have got without images.

Jessica. Forgive iomoon. He comes across as tetchy at times ... But he makes a perfectly valid point. All you say is that you have a huge box of old stuff, and please will someone rescue you. You can hardly expect anyone to respond to that ...!!



Post a few scans of sample stamps or album pages, so folks can see what quality of material this is, and I'm sure someone will offer a friendly opinion as to how you might proceed. All depends on whether what you have is a decent old collection that someone spent money on so that it has retained its value (possible but not that common), or some unsuspected treasures (highly unlikely), or a bunch of ordinary stuff that's worth little (most likely, but who knows -?).



Pictures, please!

Bad move to post your email address. If someone left that stuff behind, it's probably junk.

why is it a bad move to post an email address? Does it violate some ebay policy?

My response was mild.


People should think (if they can) before they write.


I really don't need criticism from someone with zero feedback.


Basically however, I don't give a damn as to your reaction to my response.
