What are the best apps for stamp identification and value?

In a world where the instant messages, electronic mails, phone calls, and video calls dominate, the snail mail may have long been forgotten. Gone are the days of stationeries, envelopes, and postmen. But surprisingly, stamp collecting still remains as one of the most popular hobbies. Dubbed as ‘the hobby of kings and the king of hobbies,’ many people collect these miniature works of art. Some philatelists—the fancy word for stamp collectors—collect for relaxation and enjoyment while an undeniable number collects in hopes of stumbling upon a fortune. You may be wondering, are old stamps worth anything? Of course, they do! Sadly, not everything has value. If you’re curious about how to know if your stamps are valuable, you need to appraise it depending on its condition and rarity.

Used to indicate the cost of postage of a mail, stamps are often considered to have high artistic value. Almost 200 years after it was implemented, a wide and diverse variety of these postage items have flooded the world market with numerous designs. As you may have guessed, that’s a lot of stamps! Again, not everything is worth to be collected nor have financial value. Serious philately lovers know that stamp collecting follow certain principles: the historical value and geographical aspects or subjects to which they are devoted. Even with the narrowed down criteria, knowing your stamp’s value may be exhausting. No worries though as today’s technology comes with so many conveniences including postage stamp scanner apps.

    "I'm not a stamp collector but I had a lot of old stamps that I was curious about so I gave this app a shot and it did identify all of them. My biggest complaint was the price, I only bought this app because Googling them was getting to be a waste of time but I really think this app would have been more fair in the 5 dollar range rather than the 10 I paid. I guess it's worth it if you are big into stamp collecting though."
