Stamps (Philately)/stamps


Hello I have some 1910 & 1912& 1916& 1920&1923 2cent carmines, I was wondering if they r  as valuable  as I think.... Need help!!! On some other questions.thanks....


The vast majority of existing examples are the common varieties.  It would take individual examination of each stamp to determine if it was one of the scarcer issues.  Check the reference section of your local library for the Scott Specialized Catalog of United States Stamps and Covers.  There you will find an identification guide with photographs to help you sort through your two cent carmines.
