Is any one on Tman into stamp collecting or knowledgeable about the value of older stamps?

I have an assortment of full sheets of US commemorative stamps, mostly 13 cents and 15 cent face value. Trying to decide if they are worth more than face value or if I should just use them to mail letters and packages.

Thank you.

BTW - my Internet problems have been fixed. I appreciate every one’s concern.

You’ll be amazed at how little you will be offered for them. Less than face value to sell to a dealer. Use them to mail your packages. The 13 and 15 cent were from around the mid to late 70s. You’d be impressed with the old stamps from the 50s and earlier. Some were really cool. And rather than full sheets, collectors usually just wanted the plate block. That’s the block of 4 stamps where the color code is located. 35 years at the Post Office.

I used to collect stamps as a kid.

The resource you need is a Scotts Stamp Catalog. The blue book of stamps for over 100 years.

I only collect the 200 dollar green tax stamps. I'm thinking about geting a few of the 5 dollar red ones though.

Use them to mail ltrs ect. Unless very very very rare, they are hardly worth the money printed on them.

Some of the stamps that have come out in the last year are pretty neat looking!
