Welcome to the iGuide Rare Stamp Price Guide
IGuide is proud to host the online Stamp Collector Price Guide. The price guide is maintained by Jon R. Warren,
whose price guide books have been the authority on collectibles values since 1985. The searchable database consists of
detailed reports on a growing list of items in this category. Each Price Report
includes current market values in ten different grades. The database is updated constantly.
Prices vary widely. We strive to reflect actual selling prices rather than Internet "asking" prices, which are often inflated.
The Prices shown on our Price Guide Detail Pages are reviewed and updated by our Board of Advisors. They are as up-to-date
as possible. Want to suggest a Price Update? Help us keep up-to-date, click the FEEDBACK button at the very top center of each page.
One important fact anyone wishing to sell rare stamps should know is that ALL Stamp Collector Price Guide books are far out of date
and the prices are vastly inflated. The market for the rarest stamps continues to be strong. The rare 1800s and
early 1900s U.S. Commemoratives in 'LIKE NEW' condition are very much sought after and sell quickly at high prices. Beginning in the late 1920s,
stamps were mass-produced by the postal authorities world-wide to meet collector demand and thus they are quite common. Stamps from around the world from about 1930 onward are common
in most cases. Still, some command good prices on eBay and other sites, while others fail to sell or sell at far below face value. Very few if any will bring the
extremely inflated prices shown in old price guide books. Shoeboxes full of common user stamps are worthless.
How to Sell
We recommend eBay.com for selling. It is a lot of work, but this is the best way to get a fair price for your collection. If you want someone to do the work for you and sell them on consignment,
we recommend 2nd Markets Corp. of Chattanooga 2ndMarkets.com (full disclosure - 2nd Markets owns this site).
iGuide was founded in January, 1999 to answer the question, "What's it worth?".
