Question
Dear William,
I found the stamps I am inquiring about at a flea market/consignment shop. Many have never been used and some have. All I can find online is different websites that will evaluate the stamps. I am looking for a faster way to get info on these stamps. Is there a website for USPO with their stamps listed and years the stamps were issued?
Thank you,
Penny

Answer
Hi Penny,

 I hope you can appreciate that without a better description, there is no way I can properly advise you.  What you need to do is buy or borrow the appropriate Scott catalogs that list virtually every stamp ever issued, along with values.  You can usually borrow them at your local library.  You can buy used copies online at eBay or Amazon.  Good luck.

Bill
