various questions about inherited stamps
I inherited a large collection that I'm slowly looking through and figuring out. There are a lot of things I don't understand about how my uncle collected stamps so maybe as I go along and have questions I can ask them here?
I know this forum works at a more relaxed pace I'm in no real hurry
He seemed to have changed how he collected over the years . Right now I'm trying to focus on US stamps and separate them into what I think are keepers because they are worth more than face or maybe I like them , and pure postage.
With respect to postage , I have a few ebay seller ID's so within reason (not willing to place 100's of tiny stamps on a package) I can use them to mail items I sell. I literally got all these for free so if I can mail packages with them it is going to save me quite a bit of money.
Question #1 , dividing stamps into glue and self adhesive is it safe to assume everything self adhesive is purely postage?
Question #2 ish can I use forever postcard stamps as 34 cent stamps along with a 10 and a 5 to mail a first class letter?
along those lines what about additional ounce stamps? or can 2 ounce and 3 ounce stamps be used as there current value on packages to add up to the cost ? So if I am mailing a package that costs $3.00 can I put I guess 4 2 ounce stamps plus an additional ounce stamp?
Question #3 some stamps aren't forever stamps but don't exactly have a value , what does a B on a stamp mean in terms of its face value?
more questions to follow at random intervals if anyone feels like answering
