What are my stamps worth?
To have your stamp and cover collection evaluated, come to our Stamp Collectors Corner on the
4th Saturday of each month (except December)
1 PM to 4 PM.
No appointment necessary.
Occasionally there may be a wait of 15-20 minutes until someone is free to assist the next person(s).
A knowledgeable Club Member will look over your stamp and cover collections (remember, no one knows everything).
An evaluation can usually be done in 20 - 30 minutes.
Depending on its value and your intentions, we will try to give a list of options/recommendations on how to continue the collection or to find it a new home,
if you have no long term interest in stamp collecting as a hobby.
There is no charge.
We are at 4828 NE 33rd Ave - about 6 blocks south of Killingsworth.
Our building is old Firestation #34. It is a distinctive brick building with 5 white columns in front.
A tall white Flag Pole marks the entrance to our parking lot at the south side of the building.
Call us at (503) 284-6770 or email to email@example.com for more info.
