Question
I have a 20nth anniversary of American moon landing Apollo 11 is this worth anything?  In this collection allot of different in cased stamps soviet union, mount Vernon stamp dated February 22, 1956. Its a collectors book full of different in cased with a history card beside each stamp.  Thank you for your help.

Answer
Mary,

I believe you are referring to the $2.40 United States stamp issued July 20th, 1989.  It has a current catalog (retail) value of $4.75 in mint condition, or $2.00 in postally used condition.  You can look up the value of all your stamps at your local library.  Ask at the reference desk for the Scott Catalogs.  There you will find photographs and current values for every stamp ever issued worldwide, sorted by country and date of issue.
