BLV, one of the "problems" with old stamps is that they are often much more plentiful than their modern counterparts: In Victoria's time, there were virtually no phones and there were certainly no emails or text messages. So that meant that the only way to send a message was in a letter with a stamp on it.
Some of the stamps were printed in the BILLIONS, so are still easy to find even today.
Also, as previous replies have pointed out, condition is EVERYTHING with these - a nibbled perforation, a crease or tear will take away what little value there is.
I'd say Row 4 Stamp 2 is the best one here - and even that appears to have a missing corner, so maybe worth a pound on a (very) good day.
And, often, in these collections, if the stamps on one page are mainly damaged, the rest will be in similar condition. BUT if you have any that appear to be in perfect condition, it would be worth putting up a higher-resolution scan of those (maybe scan just a couple at once and trim the image to just show the stamps).
Thank you for your explanation. Now that you mention it, it seems daft that the fact that so many were printed didn't immediately occur to me. Of course they did!
With reference to the stamp that you think might the the better one of this bunch. I have re-scanned it and post it here for your feedback. I seem to have found that missing corner too
How old are these? I'm guessing (in part from the postal info and internet search) that they are from early 1900's or very late 1800's, but I am so curious to know more.
Why is this one considered the better one? Is it because of the colors?
From what everyone has said the rest are VERY common, but are there any others worth closer inspection?
I really appreciate your comments Gavin; and those from Phil.
PHIL !! Thank you also. Both yours and Gavin's words are kind and patient to one who comes to this forum seeking to learn, with next to zero knowledge and a bit of RSI (now) from all the internet searching. THANK YOU!
