I bought a world collection Stamp book for 3$ at a garage sale this weekend, and I am trying to identify this series of stamps in my book. I have looked all over the internet for images to help identify them, but to no avail. The series that I have is a presidential series beginning with a Pink #1 Washington with a black and white image of Washington in the center and the dates 1769 in the top left and 1797 on the top right of the stamp. I am not foolish enough to belive that this is a rare/valuable stamp series or even a legit stamp series but I am trying to decipher what all these stamps are and I figured I should at least start here. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! This series does start with Washington and I have each one up to Kennedy #35. Thanks again everyone!

Sorry, those aren't postage stamps - just stickers

I believe they were part of an educational series with the chronological order of the US Presidents.

Welcome to Stamp Collecting Forum!

The scans you provided are not actually stamps, but more accurately described as labels. Stamp collectors often refer to them as "cinderellas" or "poster stamps", in that they serve no postal use, but yet are perforated and gummed for inclusion in the introductory section(s) of a stamp album.

They were usually available only in a set of all of the US Presidents and were produced by HE Harris & Co. (now a division of Whitman Publishing). Back in the day, the set used to cost under $1; nowadays they are $3 or $4 for a version of similar labels that have been a bit modernized in appearance in recent years. In any case, they have no philatelic value other than the fact that they are very colorful, which was especially pleasing to a child or novice collector.

Here's a link to an old thread that shows the stamps/labels along with some further discussion about them:
