Greghoro, one of the reasons you haven't heard anything yet is, in my opinion, you posted too many stamps. It is OK to post this many, but do a few at the time. Makes it easier to answer the question.
Most of your stamps are easy to ID. May I ask you, do you own a catalog of US stamps? The Scott catalog has a very nice identifier in the front, that would help you tremendously. You can pick up one of a previous year cheaply on eBay, or your local library may even have one.

Please do not apologize - you did not do anything wrong. Again, if you would list just a few here, it would be easier for us to keep them apart.

I find it to be an excellent source of ID information.

Another suggestion is to sort out a selection of your stamps that interest you the most and concentrate on those first. You may find a number of duplicates and so forth. Secondly, you may want to visit your nearest library to see if they've got a Scott's catalog available for checkout. Third - investigate if there's a local stamp club meeting close by for you to attend. I'd bet a few of the members wouldn't mind lending you an older catalog - or at least use one during the meetings.

And most importantly - have fun, take your time, and remember that it's a journey - not a destination!

I'd be very reluctant to clean stamps, though I don't think one could hurt a postally used stamp by soaking it in water for a bit.

A bath is clear, clean water is recommended. The stamp shown in the first post appears to be toned, cleaning will not help this discoloration.

And adding to Don...it's COOL water, not hot. Be sure to use wide blade tongs, not needle nose types. Have a good drying book or other method to dry the stamps, including, if necessary, with a bit of weight to keep the stamps flat. Leave them drying for quite a bit of time to ENSURE they're fully dried. If they're removed too soon, even if they just feel dry enough - they may tend to curl anyway!

Mind of their own, sometimes...
