Frequently Asked Questions


  • What is a Stamp Appraisal?

    When an appraisal is performed on a stamp collection, you are given a formal report on the value of your collection. It is recommended a formal appraisal be performed before you sell if you have a valuable stamp collection. If you plan on putting your stamp collection in your will or estate, or you need the collection insured, you should get a formal appraisal.

  • Do you buy Stamp Collections?

    Yes, I purchase stamp, cover, and postcard collections. I need to see the collection before I can make you an offer.

  • Can you sell Stamps for me?

    Yes. If you have high value stamps, I can arrange to sell them on consignment for you, or offer them in a large nation-wide formal auction.

  • My stamp collection is not worth a great deal, what should I do with it?

    Stamp collections that do not have a high monetary value are still useful. You should consider handing the collection down to a younger family member, or donating to a charity.

  • How do I donate my stamps to a charity?

    Topper Stamps can arrange to have your stamps donated to the local Houston Stamp Club children’s program, the Boy Scouts Merit Badge program, or a similar charity. Donations to the history department at private schools or to a local home-school association is also a good idea.

  • What are your fees?

    For a formal, written appraisal, fes are $75/Hour with a minimum of charge of $150.
