WHAT ARE MY STAMPS WORTH?
Perhaps the most frequently asked question in Philately (Stamp/Cover Collecting)
To have your stamp and cover collection evaluated,
come to our Stamp Collectors Corner on the
4th Saturday of each month (except December)
1 PM to 4 PM.
===> January 27, 2018 <===
No appointment necessary.
Occasionally there may be a wait of 15-20 minutes until someone is free to assist the next person(s).
A knowledgeable Club Member will look over your stamp and cover collections (remember, no one knows everything).
An evaluation can usually be done in 20 - 30 minutes.
Depending on its value and your intentions, we will try to give a list of options/recommendations on how to continue the collection or to find it a new home,
if you have no long term interest in stamp collecting as a hobby.
There is no charge.
We are at 4828 NE 33rd Ave - about 6 blocks south of Killingsworth.
