Postage stamp prices are not always what they appear to be. New postage stamps are generally worth the amount printed on their face. However, old stamps can be worth much more than the monetary value printed on the front. Rare stamps are often worth thousands of dollars, which is amazing when you stop to consider that the original price might have been 10 cents.

There are numerous ways you can find out more about postage stamp prices and their resale value. You could check out some informative websites to get a better idea, or you can contact some reputable stamp dealers who may be able to guide you in the right direction. Many stamp companies offer online catalogs that allow you to browse and find out pertinent information behind certain stamps, including their monetary value.
