I live in Florida. Due to some recent hurricanes and loss of power for over a week, my AC/de-humidifier was off. Needless to say my stamps suffered from the high humidity. I collect classic Latin American stamps and stationary.I now have many early mint stamps all stuck together. Most were in zip lock bags and a few in glassines. Even the albums took a serious hit:100+ year old pages with stamps stuck to them. My question: how much will it devalue these stamps (mostly 19th century to early 20th century). It really doesnt matter to me if a stamp has original gum or not. Just my 2 centavos......I guess if its a $100+ stamp, yeah, OK, it may matter but I am just an average collector with very few high dollar stamps.
OK. Clarification time. I was curious to see if soaking these mint stamps would devalue them substantially. If I don't soak them and pry them apart they will most definately be ruined. Is the monetary value that much different if they have no gum? Thanks everyone.
most faulty sell for very little 2% to 5% of scott on e-bay. so a 100.00 stamp wuld be worth 2.00 to 5.00 on most
