Re: Stamp Collection - How much worth?

I have just got 29 Australian stamp yearbooks, any ideas the best way to sell them? As a collectors item or as postage without the books at a discount? Some of the books would be common but there would be some rarer ones in there too.

I got about 60% of face value when I sold one with the books
probably less hassle just selling the stamps at 60% of face value

Re: Stamp Collection - How much worth?

I only counted the face value of the yearbooks that said it on the front and that was $936 but I estimate the total face value to be $1200 - $1300 as the earlier books only had low face values.
