He would like to sell his and his Mother's stamp collection.

Stamps are from mid 1800's through early 1900's.

Location is Northern Indiana.

Thanks for any help.

    Without some pics and knowing how it's organized it could be anywhere from a run of the mill kid's collection with a bunch of common and faulty stamps to a seriously kick ass collection.

    Are the stamps in albums? stuffed into envelopes or ziplock baggies? If in albums, ow are the stamps mounted? used/unused/mixed? I've seen some nice old albums but the original collector used tape to hold down the stamps, ruining every one of them.

    Got any more info?

    I just went through this process with the collection I inherited from my father.
    I read some to learn basics and scouted auction firms.
    PM me if you seek details.
