My expertise is in US, but I have a lot of exposure to worldwide, and with wide reference material, I will do what I can to answer questions about global stamps. In US I have extensive experience in all aspects (does include Administrative overprints for Cuba, China, Puerto Rico etc.). Also, Hawaii general issue and Revenue (pre-statehood). Of course still building knowledge but have been collecting since 1980. Air Mail is a favorite area, but not a limitation. Two specialty areas are Large Banknote issues, and Washington/Franklin identification. Strong experience in Carrier & Locals, Private Die (Also known as M&M for "Match & Medicine" but also includes some playing card and perfume stamp issues.) Recently have been building more back-of-book experience, especially around Official, Newspaper, Revenue and tax editions. Some covers, and cancellations, but not my strong suit. Another area I'm recently diving into. What I can't do: Anything non-US, as it's just not an area I focus on.

Janella,    My expertise is limited to United States stamps only, so I cannot speculate on the resale value of your Grenada issues.  I've never heard of the International Collectors Society, but I suspect

This is what is known as a "Changeling".  Stamps of original color can become another color under certain conditions.  Exposure to sulphur in the air (near plants, mines, etc), can cause orange stamps

Hi Bruce,    I'm so sorry for your loss.  My older brother passed away 3 years ago and he was my inspiration to start collecting when I was 12 in 1980.    The short answer to your question is "maybe".

Hi Senthil,  Thanks for the question.  Senthil, This is actually just a very minor underinking error, and is really not that uncommon. Some collectors would consider this a freak, but in general I consider
