Venturing over from the dark side (sports cards). Anything here worth selling, or simply use 'em for postage . ? Found in some long lost binders of GOLD B)

No idea why, but yes., some complete Turkey set. I remember this from grade schools barely.

    On the US side, the best items are the state flags sheet, and the Mercury/Man on the Moon blocks. They are not however, worth all that much. Frankly, I'd just use all of the stamps as postage.

    The US stamps are postage.

    Use them for postage especially if you sell stamps or coins. Personally, I like receiving parcels with an array of stamps on them...it's a nostalgic thing.

    I've seen the 1976 .13 Cent 50 State Flag Stamp Sheet go for $11.99 or double the issue price. You decide.

    The usa stamps are postage but i personally would keep aside the 1c booklet
    pane with the zip. many booklets got broken up and stamps were used and
    those tabs with zips got thrown away. 4 cents wont hurt you.
    Unfortunately the turkish stamps are all damaged as they were housed in a
    photo album and the glue from the photo albums pages would have made
    ines on the back of the stamp...With me being an avid stamp collector, the
    back of the stamp means more than the front due to the term MNH if the
    back of the stamp meant nothing , then the terms MNH, MUH , MLH and
    just Mint would never ever come into play. am speaking as a retired stamp
    & coin dealer from Australia. I wholeheartedly agree with mmissinglink
    as i am of the same way of thinking as he. ... I love getting packages smothered .
    with stamps. lastly dealers buying price on these things are 50% face value
    if you are lucky...SO USE THEM AND GET 100% . I would keep them until the
    end of the year and use them when sending your xmas cards out...
    That way you have no need to buy stamps....OIO
