Stamp Collection for Sale  $25,000



A great gift for a 10-16-year-old daughter or son. This is not only a good investment, but a hobby in which the whole family can participate. Collecting stamps will enhance their knowledge of history, geography, geopolitics, environmental concerns and much more.


The collection includes eleven binders containing over thirty thousand stamps, on approximately five thousand custom pages. All stamps are in black mounts, both protecting the stamps and enhancing their beauty.


Additionally, there are about eight hundred items from the United Nations and the United States, purchased from their respective postal services, still in the original packaging, that I have not yet added to the collection.


Also included are a copy of the software I have used over the years (OLD, DOS based, but functional), the files containing the album pages (MS WORD), Scott catalogues, (both hard and soft copies), watermark reader, and some miscellaneous supplies.


I started this collection with an album given to me by my Uncle when I was fourteen years old. I am now seventy, living in Costa Rica and none of my family has any interest in stamp collecting. Here I have no access to stamp collecting facilities or supplies and therefore I have decided to sell the collection.


Method of valuation:


The basis’s of valuation are the Scott 2009 Standard Postage Stamp Catalogue Volumes 1-6 and the 2006 Scott Specialized Catalogue.


The collection contains:


Eleven binders containing a little over 30,000 items with an estimated catalogue value of $140,000 and a net value of over $100,000 after being adjusted for condition. I have begun the process of moving some of the items to a newer software package. To date I have reviewed and moved 628 items, which have a catalogue value of over $41,000 (over $35,000 after being adjusted for condition), substantially more than my asking price. They include all of the stamps that I have valued at over $450.
