WHY BECOME A COLLECTOR
Despite a lack of youthful interest, stamp collecting remains a surprisingly strong pastime. Linn’s Stamp News estimates there are 5 million stamp collectors in the United States, with over 30 national stamp shows annually. Making money isn’t usually the point, though. Rather, it’s the satisfaction of finding rarities and filling holes in personalized collections.
The world record price for a stamp at auction was broken in June 2014 with the sale of the British Guiana 1-cent Black on magenta for $9.48 million, he said.
There are only two values that you should consider when buying or selling coins: Numismatic/collectible value, and the value of the precious metal content in the coin itself.
Numismatic value is a science unto itself, and should be approached cautiously. For example, when buying late-night TV offers of “limited edition” coins, be aware – most of these items are overpriced.
Finding stamps and coins can be tricky. Collectors scour websites, shows, local dealers and auctions. The possibility of a find occasionally draws those who’ve inherited collections. They are seldom worth much.
