PGS Gold & Coin
Certified Stamp Buyers
We Buy Stamp Collections
Big & Small
The need for postage stamps in today’s modernized world is almost nonexistent. Sadly, the hobby of stamp collecting has suffered a decline in popularity from the days when our parents and grandparents were collecting stamps. This is especially true among the millennial generation, who are emailing their correspondence at lightning speed, and very seldom write & mail letters as older generations did.
Many of us have stamp collections that are collecting nothing more than dust in storage, instead of gaining any value. Along with the dust, there are environmental and atmospheric factors to consider when deciding what to do with a stamp collection. Stamps are easily damaged and devalued over time from dampness, humidity, as well as the fast-changing temperatures in the Midwest. Stamps in your collection that may have been valuable, are sadly worthless when left to the elements for too long.
Is It Time To Sell Your Stamp Collection?
If you are no longer actively collecting stamps,
it is probably time to consider selling.
Perhaps you’ve already resigned to sell your stamp collection or parent’s stamp collection, but aren’t sure who buys stamps near you, so that old box of stamps remains in storage with no use to anyone. Maybe there was a point you already tried to sell your stamps or stamp collection, only to find there was little interest and few resources in your area to inquire of. Did you ask neighbors, friends & family “Is there a stamp dealer near me that buys stamps?”. When you are ready to sell your stamp collection, PGS Gold & Coin stamp buyers have multiple coin shop locations where you can have your stamps appraised, and where you can sell the whole stamp collection.

- Mounted Foreign Stamp Collections
- China, Korea, and Asia Stamps
- Rare and/or High-Quality US Stamps
- US Collections
- British and European Colonies
- Old Correspondence including postage
- Wartime Covers

- Revenue Stamps
- Civil War, Stampless Covers, and Postal History
Follow these quick steps for a free evaluation:
1. Lay your items on a table and take some general overview pictures. Look for any markings, hallmarks, or stamps that will help identify the item, take pictures of those also. Using a white background produces the best pictures. Make sure to note and photograph any areas of damage or discoloration.
2. If you know specific details about your items, please include as much information as possible. Example: year, era, model, issue, and any provenance you may have.
3. Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your complete contact information name, address, mobile number, and email.
A PGS representative will get back to you as soon as possible.
