Does anyone know of a source on the internet to help me identify and price saudi stamps.

I am seeing some on eBay go for around 600/700$

I have some simmilar ones. with king Faisal name on them.

I just cannot seem to find any source to help me out.

I would like to sell them.

Are they priced to buy at $600-$700 or sold for $600-$700? Are they certified? I find only 2 single S.A. stamps sold on eBay in that range, no Faisal.

If you don't have access to a catalogue, have a look at Stampworld, which will give you some idea of relative scarcity (although prices will often be over-high). If you're identifying definitives, remember first to identify the cartouche.

yes they a definitive's, could you please explain what is meant by cartouche?
and how to identify a cartouche stamp.
I read Arabic but not the tangled up kind on these stamps.
The only ones I can differentiate are the Faisal stamps because its clear at the bottom.
thanks!

The cartouche is the somewhat oval design representing the individual Saudi king, which appears at the corner of the stamp in the definitives from the 1950s and 1960s (oilfield, dam, aeroplane).
