Found these in a nice booklet that I inherited. Have many more that are older but bought these might be the most interesting.

I was looking for just information on these stamps, and maybe others around the same time period that could be worth anything. I know that they probably are not, but I thought that these were pretty interesting and in good condition except for the george washington with his head covered in black. I just have so many and are not interested in getting rid of them, but more curious to see if any have any potential.

Would it be possible for the images to be a bit bigger and upright? Impossible really to tell very much from the pics you posted.

Destinova94, Don's information is bang on for gathering info on those stamps. I wish my grandparents had saved their buisness mail and stamps from the turn of the century so that I may have inherited it. Looks like the previous owner enjoyed the hobby of collecting by taking the time to mount in an album. As far as potential, don't focus only on the dollar value as most do first. Take the time to acquaint yourself as it can likely be a valuable lifelong relaxing hobby; to be enjoyed in learning and education potential.Enjoy!
