Stamps to look for

While you can start a collection as easily as checking your mailbox, curating a collection of rare stamps worth money takes a bit more planning. If you`re ready to get into rare stamps in a big way, starting with the rarest stamps lets you make a big splash and set up a portfolio of high-value collectibles that is worth money immediately. The Inverted Jenny, Source: Wikimedia Commons One of the best-known stamps in history as well as being one of the rarest stamps available, this issue saw an upside-down blue inking of the World War 1 era JN-4HM inverted on a single 100-stamp sheet of the print run inside its right-side-up red frame. 1847 5 Cent Benjamin Franklin Stamp, Source: Wikimedia Commons Starting with the earliest postage stamps printed in 1847, Franklin`s contributions to philately were recognized with his picture on postage stamps.

Many of these early specimens were prone to printing issues, making mint examples some of the best stamps worth money to add to your collection with some fetching hundreds of thousands of dollars. 1851 Hawaiian Postage Stamp, Source: Wikimedia Commons Aside from the special care needed to maintain their value, you`ll want to consider your strategy for building your collection of rare postage stamps. Value – If your primary focus is on curating a collection that increases its value, then you`re going to want to focus on rare stamps that are wanted the most or what you think those stamps will be in the future. While some postage stamps have clearly shown the ability to set the bar for rare stamp prices over time, finding buying trends that let you invest before a stamp`s value increases can offer more profit in the long-run.

Condition – Collectible stamps range from ones with significant fading, hinge marks, and other signs of use all the way to completely unused stamps. To get an accurate value for your collection or an individual stamp, it`s best to consult professionals. Curating a Themed Collection for Value If you`d rather build a rare stamp collection that focuses on your interests, that doesn`t mean you have to give up on the idea of value. Even within a given niche, there will be rare stamps worth money that stand out from the crowd but will make an excellent addition to your collection.

When looking for the rarest stamps to add to your themed collection, take a few factors into consideration. Don`t Break Them Up – While many stamps collections focus on single stamp specimens, blocks and sheets can make valuable additions too. These offer a glimpse of the stamp in its fresh-off-the-press glory that may increase the rarity of your collection in years to come. Do Your Research – Limited edition runs and stamps that were heavily circulated but lightly collected can help you not only support your theme but add value.

Checking circulation numbers on new releases can help you spot specimens that may be primed to gain value but that are currently offered for a much more reasonable price.

How To Get Your Stamps Certified

today i’m going to go over the process of sending your stamps in in order to get them certified [Music] now this video is a long time coming i actually did a video about this a while ago um i worked on it but then some things just came up and it just didn’t work out So i’m happy to revisit this again and upload it to my channel so a lot of people think they have a stamp worth a few thousand dollars if not more so what do you do when you have that stamp you really probably can’t walk it into a shop and sell for that amount of money a lot of times serious stamp collectors are only going to buy super valuable stamps if they have a certification.

The question of the day is how do you get that certification there are many different sites and places you can go to get your stamp certified i recommend the american philadelphic society or aps um what you’re going to do is you’re going to go to their website i’m gonna walk you through that in a second you go to their website you fill out your paper their paperwork you send in The stamp you wait for the reply they send you back the stamp now this is gonna be a step-by-step instructional video about how to go onto the website where to go what to print off how to fill it out and me sending this stamp in so before we get into all that paperwork we have to actually find out what this stamp is um the possible scott catalog number.

Start filling out the paperwork all right so step one is you actually want to find out what you think the stamp you are sending in to the american philanthropic society is so of course i have done my research i know that this stamp is in fact 831 i know the colors are a little off but that’s okay we’ll get into it so as you can see 831 is the same design as this stamp so now we have to figure out what scott Catalog number this stamp is actually because it’s probably not this one because this one is little red so we come down here see a 31 vermilion probably no vermilion probably know we keep going down gray brown looks a little more better we’ll keep coming down see if we can find a 31 no no come back up here let’s see A31 gray brown that one looks a little bit better so i think it’s probably the gray brown color wouldn’t you agree gray bound gray brown now what separates that this a31 down here gray brown to that one and that is going to be the watermark.
