Happily preparing and listing my latest auctions via Turbo Lister, set to upload, and surprise - flagged by ebay telling me there are errors - I can't sell anything (stamps in my case) that originated from Cuba because of sanctions. Really? REALLY? Who knew. Totally floored by this. Here I am, dedicated ebay user, paying their fees, etc., etc., and they flag something so STUPID. I'm pretty sure Cuba is not profiting from the measly amount of money I (won't) be making, and I don't know anyone there anyway. I guess all we can do for now is complain to our Representatives and Senators about this. (Please do). This country can re-open a stupid embassy there but we can't sell a measly few bucks worth of stamps for our own profit. This is just such a joke. Unbelievable. For everybody that has posted about this subject - I now feel your pain.
Hello all, you guys probably get this all the time, but here goes- I inherited some stamps form an elderly friend. They are US, in pages, face value 2 cents to 13 cents, most 8 cents. In various bicentennial and federal government centenial themes-boston tea party, rise of the spirit of inependence, 100th anniversary of mail order, wildlife conservation, national parks centenial, stamp collecting, George gershwin, rural america, and a postal service theme with several catagories on it, and a few partial sheets of similar themes. What are these types of stamp sets called, and do theyhave any value beyond the face value? I have included a scan of one set. The stamps are in a nice folder, and I belive are very nice shape, probalby never handled after being stored. Are these worth having appraised?
