Welcome to Stamp Community Family (SCF)

Many people come to SCF because they've inherited a stamp collection and want information and help determining a value of their inheritance.

Please remember these truths about stamp collecting:
1. Unless your benefactor was a millionaire investing in stamps, there is a 99.99% chance that you are not going to get rich.
2. Your inheritance was assembled and collected by someone who enjoyed it as a hobby and pastime. This is usually the true value of a collection. As such, you should consider continuing and expanding the collection.

You should now proceed with these three steps:
1. Read the questions and answers already posted in this forum; 90% of your questions have already been answered.
2. Use the Search button at the top of this page to search this forum for specific items you may have; e.g. 'Gold Stamps'
3. Finally, post any unique questions by starting a New Topic with a good subject line.

There are two caveats:
1. Remember the Forum Rules you agreed to when signing up for the SCF forum.
2. Any discussions with offers to buy/sell will immediately be deleted.

Is the intent to summarize FAQ questions regarding inheriting a collection in this thread or just where people ask questions (no matter if they tried to search or not).
