We get a lot of calls from
people looking to sell or get a value on stamp collections they either started
as a child or received from a parent, grandparent or other relative. Generally, if what you have is a box of
stamps (foreign or US) that were torn off of envelopes from the mails they are
of little or no value. Also even though you think they are old and valuable, anything newer than
75 years old isn't old for stamps (or course there are RARE exceptions).
There was an article in the Frederick News-Post
(Sunday, August 31) about Mike Croghan.
The Frederick Stamp Club is a group of men and
women (along with some children) who are interested in the pursuit of stamp
as a casual pastime, educational endeavor or serious hobby. Our interests are quite diversified: from
worldwide to US only to
topicals - "you name it.".
Meetings typically consist of a brief business review usually followed by a short presentation of an interesting stamp related subject. We also do buying, selling, and trading at meetings. The majority of our members are also APS members and we subscribe to the APS Code of Ethics.
We are currently meeting at the Walkersville United Methodist Church (in Georgetown Hall), 22 Main St., Walkersville, Md. A Yahoo map link is provided below. Meetings are on the 4th Tuesday of the month from 7pm to 8:30pm.
