Antiques/stamp appraisers in NYC or vicinity?

My dude has a serious amount of antique stamps, given to him by his father. He's interested in learning the value of these, individually or as a whole collection.

I guess we're looking for a reputable appraiser who specializes in stamps in the NYC vicinity, if such a person exists. We're not sure how this works, or where to start, so any advice would be helpful.

(We could google for an appraiser, but have no idea who or what to look for in regards to "reputable.")

What or who should we be looking for? What are the costs associated with this?

Thanks!

Have you looked the Philatelic Foundation, the Collectors Club and the American Philatelic Society?
