We receive inquiries all the time from folks who have "come into a collection". Whether through inheritance, receipt of a family of a family heirloom, or perhaps you have become reacquainted with a former hobby, this video offers practical advices on what comes next. Graham Beck of APS sponsored, Exploring Stamps, offers a set of instructions about how to store, value, keep or sell the stamps.
Graham Beck has been the host and producer of the Exploring Stamps YouTube channel since 2016. The online video channel is dedicated to the promotion of philately through short entertaining videos. Since the channel’s launch, Graham has attracted over half a million views and gained a global following of almost 7000 subscribers. Graham’s interest in philately started as a child growing up in South Africa where he enjoyed collecting new issues with friends. After rediscovering the hobby as an adult, he began producing videos to share his passion with others while demonstrating what stamp collecting has to offer. From Apollo missions to Icelandic Volcanos, the channel has covered a number of fascinating topics related to philately, often involving travel and special video effects. Graham is based in New Jersey with his wife Laura who eagerly takes part behind the scenes with her nifty camera work.
