Warwick and Warwick is a specialized auction house that trades in collectibles, such as postage stamps, postcards, cigarette cards, banknotes and more. They can help beginner philatelists assess and value their collections. They can also help people sell their collections through their monthly auctions. Because they retain a percentage of the sale price, it is in their best interest to sell a collection at the highest value.

Another great way to sell a stamp collection is through a stamp society, like the Philatelic Traders Society. This society abides by a code of ethics, and sellers can seek recourse if they are treated unfairly by a fellow dealer. It is also possible to interact with a number of dealers through this society, and sellers can receive several bids by interested buyers before selling to the highest bidder.

Stamps can also be sold on online auction websites like eBay. This may yield good results if sellers list the items accurately and with sufficient description. The Internet can also be an excellent tool for gauging the potential value of a stamp collection.
