Stamps (Philately)/Price value

Question
I have some old stand the I want to sell but I don't know the value

Answer
Maria,

I suggest bringing your stamps to the next meeting of your local stamp club and ask if there is a member who would be willing to make a quick assessment of your holdings.  

You can also 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.

Here's where to find a stamp club in your area:

Good luck!
