Recently, twenty or so pounds of on-paper U.S. stamps were dropped in my lap. They look to be mostly cut envelope corners, from the 1960s to the 1980s? Give or take. The hope was that I would purchase them, and barring that, dispose of them for the owner.
This is not my thing. A dealer offered to take them off my hands for $1.25 per pound. I'm inclined to do it. Understanding that there are many variables, any thoughts on whether this offer is in the ballpark for going rates?
The era of these stamps will heavily impact the price you get. Are they all commemorative or mixture of defin/commem?
That era of stamps is also probably one of the lesser valued in terms of kiloware. More modern US kiloware sells for more than that from the 1950s-1990s.
If you sell it on ebay you'll have to mail it out which could be tough for that much volume (of course you'll charge for the postage but still a pain).
Collecting used/mint Botswana, Germany, Ireland, Scandinavia (need most from Aland, Iceland & Finland), Tonga (1960s/70s) and Austria. Topicals of Owls, Holograms and books on stamps. Latin/South America issues from the American Bank Note Co. I also enjoy a fun gimmicky stamp, like the ones made from fabric for example.
