Best Answer

There are a variety of auction houses and stamp dealers. Check your local yellow pages for dealers in your area. I would recommend obtaining a copy of some of the philatelic journals, Stamp Weekly or Lynn's Stamp News. There will be many ads offering to appraise collections. The American Philatelic Association can provide names and addresses of dealers also.

If I don't know anything about stamp collection and have come into a collection how do I know I am getting a fair price when I sell the collection?

Contact a stamp collecting society/organisation and ask them if anyone could help you. They would know better than anyone as that is their specialty. Ask them if you'd do better selling the collection as a whole, or selling the stamps in smaller groups or individually. Another idea is to take your collection (or part of it) around to a few shops that trade in stamp/coin collections and a few get quotes. Try getting at least three quotes to start to form a picture of what it might be worth.

Can you cut stamps out and tape then to your stamp collection book?

You could do that. However, the tape is likely to ruin the stamp. Most collectors use an item called a hinge, a small piece of thin paper with glue on it. Hinges can be peeled off the stamp without damaging it. And the stamp is usually 'soaked' off the paper using cool water.
