Because of the amount of stamp appraisal requests we receive each day, we need to determine if your stamps are worth an appraisal because the vast majority of stamp collections are hobbyist and youth collections that have little to no value. In order to qualify for an appraisal, your stamps will need to have enough value where it will make sense for us to review in person, and for your time to bring them to us or ship them.
Send us some photos of your collection.
Just a few photos will give us a good idea of the type of collection you have. You can take photos of large groupings of stamps at a time to get the most variety within your photos.

DO NOT SEND PHOTOS OF THESE STAMPS
THEY ARE COMMON AND HAVE NO VALUE. DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT YOU READ FROM OTHER SOURCES ON THE INTERNET. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF OTHER STAMPS THAT ARE ALSO COMMON AND HAVE NO VALUE, TOO MANY TO LIST HERE. THESE ARE THE MOST COMMON PHOTOS WE RECEIVE SO PLEASE DO NOT SEND!
ALSO Please do not send photos of modern postage. All unused U.S. postage stamps issued after 1935 are worth face value postage, meaning they are worth the postage rate illustrated on the stamp. If they are used stamps after 1935 they have no value. If you have modern unused postage, you can use the website Sell Unused Stamps.
LOOK FOR THESE STAMPS
IF YOU HAVE THESE STAMPS, YOU MAY HAVE A COLLECTION WITH SOME VALUE. HOWEVER, JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T HAVE ANY OF THESE IN YOUR COLLECTION DOESN’T MEAN YOU THERE ISN’T ANYTHING WITH VALUE. PLEASE SEND SOME PHOTOS OF WHAT YOU HAVE, AND IF YOU DO HAVE SOME OF THESE THEN MAKE SURE THESE ARE IN THE PHOTOS.
