Westmont, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/07/2016 -- The Rasdale Stamp Company, a historic, family owned and operated stamp company, has on their website detailed the process by which stamp collectors may sell their collection through Rasdale. The process is detailed and available to complete in its entirety through the company's website by clicking the link in the top header of the home page reading "Sell Your Collection."
The stamp auction house begins its description of the process by which collectors may sell their collection by acknowledging that selling stamp collections can often be a difficult process. Many collectors do not maintain the detailed knowledge of the stamp industry and marketplace necessary to effectively sell their collection, according to Rasdale, as the primary focus of their hobby is often on the collecting process itself, the acquiring and organizing of stamps. Rasdale further relates that many sellers of stamp collections are not stamp collectors themselves, but have come into the possession of a stamp collection that they are now interested in selling on a marketplace of which they understandably have little knowledge.
Rasdale Stamp Company goes on to describe their experience assisting both collectors and non-collectors in the process of receiving a fair market value for their stamp collection. Parties who are interested in selling their collection via Rasdale's professional process are directed to fill out a form on their website with detailed information about their collection, found at http://www.rasdalestamps.com/sell.asp.
Among the information interested parties are required to fill out is personal information as well as the type of stamps (U.S., foreign, etc.), format of collection (albums, boxes, etc.), as well as several detailed questions related to the sources and value of the stamps in the collection. Only the personal contact information is required by the form, with the questions related to the collection optional and able to help Rasdale formulate a preliminary opinion on the best steps going forward.
