Hello, my name is Adam and I'm from Poland. A few years ago, out of curiosity, and with free means, I took the opportunity and acquired a large collection of stamp albums. I'm currently trying to personally identify them and learn their history, however, not being a specialist in philately and not having one among friends and family, I have a big problem. This has been quite a long time, but I did not give up and I'm still looking for information inter alia on philatelic forums. On the basis of current knowledge, it seems to me that I have in my collection some really interesting items. I would be very grateful for the help of experienced philatelists in identifying my collection at times. I must admit that I'm willing to sell interesting, unique or valuable stamps, if I can just find them in my albums. Greetings to all members!

re: New member

Adam, welcome to SOR.

You have chosen an unorthodox approach, but I applaud your steadfastness.

Are your albums worldwide or of specific country? If the latter, it will be easier.

I think it will be difficult to help on such a broad inquiry, but if you have specific questions, we can certainly help.

David

Welcome, Adam. You will find the SOR community to be a wonderful resource. In addition to having a wealth of knowledge and expertise, SOR folks are kind and helpful. Could you, perhaps, post some scans of the album pages that most interest you?

@DouglasGPerry
Of course, I'll do it soon as possible. At now I don't have any good quality scans, only few photos of stamps, that have been certified, but they are 35kb size.

@amsd
I'm also collecting coins, so I thought it will be same interesting and enlightening. My albums are mostly from Germany, so most stamps are German. I have some Polish stamps too.

re: New member

Adam,

good, having mostly German stamps makes life easy.

Assuming that you want to learn about your stamps rather than just sell them, you will want to get a catalogue. Michel, which is printed in German, is the best catalogue for German stamps. You can buy an older copy, or go to the library and borrow it.

There are other catalogues, if you prefer, including Scott, Yvert and Tellier, but Michel is likely to be the easiest to find for you and easiest to use. Sometimes, people sell the pages for an individual country, say Germany, from Scott catalogues, making it more affordable.

You can start there.
