Which catalog to purchase

Looking to expand my treasure hunting from coins and sports card into stamps.

What catalog do I need?

Are there specialist guides like coins?

Thanks in advance... Rob

    Went to the library.

    Though dated 2013, they had several volumes of the Scott Catalogs.

    That should help get me started.

    The Scott catalogs are the best source. Stick with the library copies if possible as they are quite expensive.

    All glory is fleeting.

    Something I find handy is a copy of the Mystic Stamp Co. catalog. If you go toothier website you can request one. Lots of good info in it.

    Stamp values are very erratic for the high grade, older ones. If you have stamps in run-of the mill condition, I use about 20% of cat value to determine market price. The high grade older stamps can run much higher than cat.
