I posted in this site that a guy I knew had some stamps and didn't know much about them. Here are the images and I hope you all can give some honest answers and maybe a link to find out more about them. Thanks.

The 7th stamp with crown, coat of arms and chain is an official stamp of Spain. I don't have my catalog with me, but the stamp looks pretty damaged.

If you send me a larger scan of the 1st 5 I should be able to tell you if they are fakes. The Brown Palm Tree is a fake WW2 German Afrika Corps Feldpost(Fieldpost).

The Bergdoff need to be at least 150%

Bergedorf #4 Definite forgery. Flourishes on the sides are incorrect.
Bergedorf #3 Definite forgery. The word "SCHILLIG" should not have an "E" at the end. ANY with an "E" at the end are Forgeries. This one looks like it might be a Sperati forgery

I don't have the time to check the others right now, maybe later I can get to it.

I forgot to add this. Here is an easy way to tell immediately if you have a forgery of the Tunis Paketmarken(5th Scan). Look at the four corners all 4 should have 3 dots. Also ANY on an Envelope or Postcard are likely fake! They were for use on Parcels ONLY! VERY few were legitimately used on envelopes!

This is a Certified Tunis Paketmarken stamp.

The 2nd Scan, Thurn and Taxis, Michel #25 the "89" cancel would be the Town of Alzey.
If Original and Legitimately used it would be a VERY VALUABLE Stamp!
I received your scans and will look at them this weekend.

I did some checking on the Thurn and Taxis Scott #52. The stamp looks good. However the Cancel is suspect. There were not many of 30k stamps that were used. Further research should be done. I can tell you this, the "89" Cancel is NOT one of the common forged cancels. So, maybe you got lucky!
Some of the common forged cancels of T & T ones are 8, the "Backwards" 9, 12, 31, 34, 60, 79, 95, 100, 142, 195
