Got these word stamps at an Estate sale in KC Kansas Are these 1940 China Air mail stamps real $1600
I had purchased these stamps and others from a estate sale Normally i don't buy stuff from those place's i mainly stick with Thrift stores but this one was in Kansas City Kansas and the area was old and i had collected stamps as a kid but after a bad year of humidity all my stamps stuck to the album pages well this was the 70's and the albums were unlike today they were paper Minkus & scott.My Grandad was a post master in NH and when he passed i got his collection which was really nice.Full sheets of stamps from 1910 to the 60's.Needless to say they were ruined !!
Well back to these stamps i was looking up the world stamps and i couldn't believe some of the prices of the Chinese & Japanese stamps & my question is are the ones i got good i seen the Chinese Republic 1949 Set Stamps Silver Yuan Issues.Both with the #C42, 1946 $73.00 on 25c Orange Air Post, And on a website it says it sold for $900.But that's hard to believe because i got 1 and my luck isn't that good.
But what i'm asking is if they are worth so much what is the proper channel to sell them i collect coins and PCGS grading is the way to go so is there a stamp grading company that is reasonably priced and i'm sure its worth while to pay money to have them authenticated.
But is their a market for them i bought 6 albums and some of the German ones are early and most are mint but hinged and some have stuck to the pages's also ;-(
Also would facebook be a good outlet for selling them or if you know of a good website i would greatly appreciate any help.Or are these just stamps to put away for my Son or grand son when he has kids
I thank you in advance Austin
Also I'm going to post this in the Information area here if that's Okay
I have this stamp and others what is the Name of it ??? Below are ones i found on the internet and some names are different Also is this the actual price for the stamp it seems to good to be true because i bought 6 stamps albums for $150 some nice stamps both USA and world wide.
So if the stamp is worth that much I'm sure they would have to be certified and slabbed like PCGS Coins are done correct.I
I had also read that this is a commonly counterfeited stamp but i mean for what i paid for it and where the estate sale was in the nice part of Old Kansas City and the other stamps in different albums none of the stamps are from later than the 80's and it look like it was a Kids collection from how he'she did the small notebook album with $0.02 - $1.50 price for stamps and the hand written pages.Also i got maybe 5k JFK stamps in glassine envelopes and white Ace pages
