What is the value of an Oliver Wendell Holmes 15 cent stamp?

User Avatar
Scott US#1288, 1288B and 1288Ba This 15 cent stamp was issued in 1965. There are a number of variations, but the value is nominal, 15 cents used for all types. The low price indicates that a dealer is not likely to purchase a single copy. It has a catalog value of 30 cents mint, 20 cents used. Identify the exact stamp using a catalog. The existence of the edge of the sheet with the stamp doesn't normally affect value. This may involve learning about perforations, watermarks and colors as well as condition. The catalog will provide a value. The value is what a collector could expect to pay for a stamp in fine/very fine condition. If selling, most cases you would be lucky to get 75% of the catalog, unless it is very valuable, then an auction would be worth looking into. The most common American catalog for identification is Scott's. Others are Stanley Gibbons, Minkus and even the US Postal Service Catalog of stamps. This 15 cent stamp was issued in 1965. There are a number of variations, but the value is minimal, 15 cents used for all types. The low price indicates that a dealer is not likely to purchase a single copy. The mint stamp catalogs at twice face which is 30 cents.

How early do you start celebrating Christmas?

Typically the day after Thanksgiving is when the Christmas decorations go up! The elf on the shelf makes his appearance on St. Nicks Day and the friends and family celebrations take place all throughout December.

What are El Salvador's Christmas traditions?

User Avatar
Christmas in El Salvador is celebrated with a family gathering at a traditional dinner to commemorate the birth of baby Jesus. Dinner is generally served after the entire family attends Mass (Misa del Gallo) on Christmas eve, which is celebrated in all churches exactly at midnight. Upon returning from church, the fabulous dinner consisting generally of oven roasted turkey, chicken or hen is served together with rice, potato salad, and fresh salad. Usual drinks are: beer, rum, wines or sodas, known as gaseosas. Fruit juices are commonly served to kids and of course the typical Horchata (mix of pulverized milk, cocoa beans and pumpkin seeds) can never fail. Children celebrate Christmas with firecrackers and fireworks while they wait for Santa Claus´ arrival with toys. The majority of Catholics decorate their homes with a Christmas tree garlanded with brilliant colorful decorations (green, red, yellow, golden, silver, etc.) and a Nativity scene that consists of a miniature representation of the Nativity when Jesus Christ was born. This Nativity scene includes vegetation, colored sawdust and art. The centerpiece of the Nativity scene is the figurines of Joseph, the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus
