Stamps (Philately)/penny red

Question
I beilive I have a few penny red stamps, how do I check to make sure
And also rare u.s stamps

Answer
Hi Robert,
Your best bet is to try to get hold of a Stanley Gibbons catalogue to check the penny reds. The Scott Classics catalogue would be best for early US.  Of course you could go to the US stamp fair and get a valuation from the dealers there. Go to the American Philatelic Society's website (stamps.com) to see when there is a fair near you.
