Catalogue Prices

Catalogues serve as a reference guide for the stamp collectors. They do not provide a fixed value to the stamp but gives a base for a fair dealing in between buyer and seller.

Catalogue prices may be backed by some biased decisions, but you can get some amount of knowledge like quantity printed, type of printing, etc. Prices for low value or very common stamps may reflect a nominal amount representing a handling fee to allow the seller to make profit on selling the stamp, rather than the value itself which may be very much low or negligible.

There are many items on which dealers may apply varying percentages of catalogue price, may be higher or lower to arrive at buying price.
