What is my stamp collection worth?

Many people find that they have inherited a stamp collection or in some other way become the owner of a stamp collection and they do not know what to do with it.  You would be surprised to know how many people have bought an old house and have found that an old stamp collection came with it.   There are many options available to you if you have a stamp collection and you don’t know what to do with it.  Bob Ingraham from the Stamporama.com stamp club has written an excellent article that outlines many of the option that are available to you.  You can read Bob’s article by clicking here.

The Northern Philatelic Society offers a free stamp collection appraisal service if you want to know what your stamp collection is worth.  If you  are interested in a free stamp collection appraisal by one of our philatelic experts, please contact Al Sarvi by calling 763 213-7722 or emailing a.sarvi@hotmail.com.  After Al has appraised your collection, he can help you with the different options available to you if you would like to sell the collection.  There are a number of reputable local auction dealers that Al can put you in touch with.  Another option available to you is to donate the collection to the Northern Philatelic Society which would go toward helping support the work of the Northern Philatelic Library.  In return we can give you a receipt for the value of your collection which you can then claim on your taxes.
