2c Washington: This is a private vending machine horizontal coil stamp, Schermack Type III perfs. Various private companies like Schermack bought imperf sheets and made them into coils by pasting strips together, then punched their own style of perfs. The perfs here are two slots on either side of the stamp, here chopped on both sides by the vending machine, probably. Telling us the watermark would help in exact identification. If you know if this is a rotary (design 19 1/2 - 20 mm wide) or flat plate (design 18 1/2 - 19 mm wide) printing, even better.

This is what a very nice horizontal coil pair looks like with Schermack type III perfs:


30c orange: is as it says and is a US revenue stamp that paid customs fees, Scott #RL2, first issued 1887. The perfs are rather stained so not much value.

Brown stamp: is a post office seal, used to fix damaged letters and such. This appears to be #OX7, issued 1888-99, very common.

4c Columbian issue: by the colors shown in the scan, both are ultramarine. The blue errors are closer to but not exactly like the typical blue of the 1c Columbian.

The two 4 cent Columbian commemoratives at the bottom are Scott #233. The top appears to be a dark ultramarine shade. The bottom one is not a natural color, probably chemically altered.

That two cent Shermack looks an awful lot like the postal counterfeit. It might be a good idea to do a comparison with another example.

The top one is Philippines Scott 214 if it is red orange and 214a if carmine in my old 1996 Scott Specialized. Might have changed. Do not know if the overprint has been forged. CV on 214 is under $1.00, a may be over.
Lower three are Washinton/Franklins and that is all I know of them, other than they all have straight bottom margins, and the 2 and 4 cent have dividing lines there. Printed in sheets of 400, divided into panes of 100.

Oh they are also perfins.

No - the original large pane was cut at a printed dividing line, as Phil mentioned, leaving a number of stamps with a straight edge. Ordinarily, I think, they have a lower value because collectors prefer perforations on all four sides.

Yes. From the sheet of 400, 80 will have one straight edge, four of those 80 will have two straight margins.

the Philippines stamp come in 4 varieties of colors, all worth the same,

Do not know if the overprint has been forged


at the CV price it's not worth..... but the 5 cents with an inverted overprint is $ 6,500 ...so a forged one will be more profitable

The US 2 cents 279Bc rose carmin is listed at $ 270 ( mint ) and $ 200 ( cancel ) , With the Philippines overprint cat value is $ 1.... so I don't think someone will make a forged one with this one

istamp,

The 5 cent is a 335 or a 378 if it has a SL watermark.
The 2 cent is a 332 or a 375 if it has a SL watermark.
The 4 cent is a 334 or a 377 if it has a SL watermark.

They do not appear to be on blueish paper which would make them 361, 358, and 360. respectively. I did not verify your perforation count.
