The value of your rare Austrian stamps cannot be estimated or told without actually seeing which stamps you are referring to and the condition that they have been kept in. This is because you may have some stamps that are worth much more than others, or your collection may be in a bit of disarray, meaning that they may not be worth as much as you would hope. In order to get your rare Austrian stamps properly valued, you'll need to follow one of the following steps:
- You can visit your local antiques or collector shop, with your rare Austrian stamps in tow and ask the professionals how much they think your stamps would be worth. They will either give you an offer or a valuation, depending on whether they are interested in buying your Austrian stamps and whether you are interested in selling them. One thing to take into consideration when dealing with people who will try and buy your goods is to get a few different valuations from local places to make sure that you are not being given a dodgy deal.
- If you don't know of a local shop like the one mentioned above, you can choose to search online for a forum or website relating to stamps, post an image of your rare Austrian stamps and ask if anyone knows how much they may be worth. This way, you may also find people showing interest in your stamps and wanting to buy them, meaning you can also make a profit for the time it took you to put them online.
- If you are interested in collecting stamps, you can buy a book from a book store which outlines many different types of stamp. This way, you can create yourself a little hobby of collecting stamps and locating them in the book. The books change every year to show the most recent price of the stamps that you have and can collect. You can get in touch with other stamp dealers too, to share and sell stamps. It is surprisingly worthwhile!
