re: Rare Old US Stamps

If you get tired of scan'n'post, you can try:

Stamp World is a good place to start if you are starting from scratch ... it has a fast, east, scrolling format ... with filters to narrow choices quickly

The Swedish Tiger is another quick-scroll identifier ...

1847usa is detailed & authoritative, once you know a bit more about what you are looking for

US Philatelic Classics Society ... for when you are ready to make a life out of 'em

US Washington/Franklin stamps (1908-1922) a specialty site for the "Third Bureau Issues"

Cheers,

re: Rare Old US Stamps

Most of the stamps you show are not rare but they are old. The second stamp you have is from the Louisiana Purchase Commemoratives. Robert R. Livingston Scott #323. The third picture is hard to see but I believe the red one in the middle is Scott #319. The rest I don't know that I could identify them correctly.

re: Rare Old US Stamps

Jason,

I was going to echo Carolee's comment: your stamps ARE old; they are NOT rare. it looks to be a nice start for someone wanting to put together a US collection. Your German stamps in another thread are similar: old but not rare.

They ARE lovingly assembled and nicely mounted, so the previous owner did a nice job. If you decide you like collecting, this is a good start, and ikey has given you some free sources through which you can get a better understanding of what you have.
