Kansas Club Hosts 'Stamps in The Attic' Event

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that at its next meeting the Lawrence [Kansas] Stamp Club will be having its first walk-in stamp consultation event which they are calling 'Stamps in the Attic'.

Club President Devin Zell is quoted as saying, “We’re not offering appraisals, we’re just going to be here to field questions and see if it’s worth pursuing.”

According to the article, "Zell, of Lawrence, says he gets at least one e-mail a week from a community member asking if he can come over and appraise a stamp collection. He’s hoping this event will help."

Reporter Anne Kealing pens, "Zell has seen many stamp collections... and most are fairly common and not worth much. He uses stamp catalogs to estimate values most of the time."
