Need help with inherited stamps

I have some commemorative Elvis stamps along with a few old ones too that I need help with. Will want to sell them but first just trying to see what I have. If I could get a knowledgeable stamp guy to reach out I sure would appreciate it. Call me at 479-530-1066 or email to [email protected] but I think a phone call would work better. Thanks

    Go to your local library and see if they have Scott's Stamp Catalogs in their reference section. The prices listed in the catalogs will be full retail. You can expect to get far less.

    Few stamps from recent decades will even bring face value so expect to be disappointed.

    All glory is fleeting.

    Or just look on eBay sold to see what the going sales rates are.

    I had en entire pad of those Elvis stamps that I inherited.
    We still use two of those 29 cent issues for postage. People get a little charge out of seeing them.
    Maybe you can get more for them on EBay?
    I did sell selective sheets here and there from a voluminous collection I inherited.
    I’d recommend looking at Ebay completed sales to gauge values.

    It costs 60 cents to mail a letter. :*

    Oh no!! Aghhh
    Didn’t get that memo…
    How embarrassing….. 2 cents postage due? Return to sender?
