General Philatelic/Newcomer Cnr : information on very old stamps

09 Feb 2019
Hello, I'm hoping someone can tell me about Canadian and American stamps, like why is some more valuable then others. I was told everyone wrote letters back 100 years plus but some stamps are more valuable then others. I'm only guessing is it because the stamps back then are harder to find, not many were printed as it is probably the same where I live

Also Mexico the red Cuauhtemoc Monument stamp could someone tell me why that stamp is rare?? Is there some where I can look up for the information especially about Mexico stamps

Information about both paragraphs will help me

re: information on very old stamps

Hi Suzanne,

I can't help with Mexico, but I can give you a little information on US stamps.

Age CAN play a part in a stamp's value, but there are some US stamps issued in the last couple years that are more valuable than most stamps 100+ years old. More often, rarity, not age, is what affects value: that plus DEMAND.

HOpe that helps. Please feel free to ask more specific questions; also, there's an immense amount of information already in our discussion board, plus our articles, and links.
