Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Has the envelope been used? In other words, has the stamp been canceled?

Kind regards,

Doris

Antique Expert: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 2 years ago

Yes,

Please send me a photo.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the stamp.

To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or "paper clip" you see on your reply page.

Kind regards,

Doris

After seeing your photo and reviewing my notes, I was able to determine a retail vintage store value of $14-18 for your 1949/50 tete beche stamped envelope.

A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.
