Over last couple of years many of my relatives on German blood line have passed away. Thus i inherited over 7 albums of stamps from early WWII through 1970's. At first was overwhelmed as my language skills of German seriously declined since my college days. Then i noticed they have many beautiful stamps that i wish to keep. Therefore i ordered Stanley Gibbons catalog of Germany to learn more. I will probably sell about half and keep rest. Any suggestions from Germany stamp collectors?

If you are selling in the USA, you are better off cataloguing by Scott.

Don't expect to sell much to Germany (they would use Michel in any case). The European market is drowning in anything but the scarcest items.

Stanley gibbons was only one that just had Germany at reasonable price. Scott has countries G through I which i did not need.

re: Schaubek 1943 Album

All I am saying is that almost no North Americans will recognize your Stanley Gibbons numbers, and a higher percentage of Germany specialists will relate to Michel, rather than SG.

Likely, the only collectors using SG for Germany would be in UK, Australia, New Zealand.

There are sellers on ebay that offer single country pages cut out of current Scott Catalogues.

Also, older Scott catalogues depreciate quickly.

Here is a 2014 Scott volume 3 for $19

re: Schaubek 1943 Album

I agree with Roy on the European market...i built a Netherlands collection in the 1970s and 1980s paying 50 to 100 percent of scott for better items...if i had waited 30 years or so i could have picked them up here on Stamporama for 15 or 20 percent of catalog !

re: Schaubek 1943 Album

i'll echo Roy's suggestions. IF you're going to sell in SOR or anywhere in the US, Scott is the preferred catalogue; German specialists, especially in Germany, but also in the US, will use Michel.

If you list your German stamps with SG IDs, viewers will really be limited to the image. Those with great visual memories might know if they have it based on that; others will need to look up the stamp in their own catalogues. It will likely keep many viewers from ever bothering.

But I'm delighted you get to spend time with your ancestors' philatelic treasures.

re: Schaubek 1943 Album

I understand what others are saying on here but, personally, I would find year of issue much more useful than any catalogue numbers. I have older SG catalogues, a few pages of Scott and a page of Michel. As there are buyers and sellers from all over the world on here any cat. numbers are useful to part of your potential customers. Also Scott separate what Americans call semi-postals whereas SG do not. Even when using the Scott pages I do not separate these issues as they are not semi anything they are legal postage stamps.

It is a great reference book. Mine is from 1992 and very thick.
That's why now-a-days they have 2 volumes.
Have the 2017 edition too.

I only use MICHEL catalogs they are far out the best. Every stamp well described.

However there are some drawbacks. It's expensive and in a foreign language.

Whichever catalog Tony uses...he has to be the one to determine what the traffic will bear when pricing his stamps...the catalog prices are irrelevant.

I read that Michel plans to release an English version. If they do, I’m going to subscribe to heir online service which I hear is much less expensive than print copies. Can anyone verify those rumors?

Hi philatelia,
that´s right.
Please look at www.briefmarken.de
You will find the „englisch“ button there.
I subscribed the Michel online catalogue a few years ago and was very satisfied with it,
Much better value as the printed version!

re: Schaubek 1943 Album

Looking through my inheritance of German stamps finally noticed album from "SCHAUBEK" dated 1943. This album must have been passed at least two generations. Although the stamps are mostly hinged and used there are many from 19th century as old as 1849. Now I ordered latest 2021 Scott Catalogue (G-I) as there might be close to 1000 stamps in this album. There might be a hidden gem or two within. Therefore I am determined to price check every stamp to ascertain the value of this entire collection as prior collectors were devoted. I gather that most people before WWII did not know proper way of storing stamps back then or it must of been a young amateur. Anyhow PROJECT SCHAUBEK is a huge task but it is fun to see stamps over 150 years old.

re: Schaubek 1943 Album

I checked out the Michel online library at www.briefmarken.de, but even though they have a "Demo E-book" link, it goes nowhere. So this is an online catalogue only? As in no pdf I can download? I can only access it when I am online? I'd rather have something I can download.

TIA...

re: Schaubek 1943 Album

Pete, it is as the name says an online-catalogue, so you have to be online and there are no pdf to download. There is always a guy sitting there with a online connected labtop at our stampclub meetings to answer questions.
