Your photos include stamps from four popular French stamp series. Popular among French stamp collectors because they may include various subtle varieties. Further, your photos include some non-postal stamps which may be of interest to revenue specialists, etc.

However, condition is a very important consideration/value factor. And it appears that several of the stamps you posted are damaged.

As I am confident you will agree, the concept of "value" is a subjective one. Further, "value" is a topic which receives periodic coverage on this Forum; often quite animated.

If your chief objective is to identify your stamps there are numerous online resources available. Also, many community libraries have the popular Scott postage stamp catalogues in their collections. While Scott includes pricing information re most of the stamps shown in your photos, most collectors understand there can be a significant difference btwn "catalogue value" and "market value".

Some nice stamps there,
I was immediately drawn to the Christmas cancel (for want of a better word)
the "11" in a circle. I like and collect those.
Be careful of the stamps caught in the page bindings, that is not good for them.

Nothing to add regarding value, but I did want to comment on the set of six stamps shown in your second post, the two on the right on the second to last row, and the four in the bottom row. They make up the set issued for the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes, an international show held in Paris in 1925, and which gave us the term Art Deco. I started a collection a couple of years ago of Art Deco stamps, and this set adorned the first page I printed for the collection, and thus were the first ones in my album. A very nice set. A postal card was also issued using the design on the 25 centime value.

Thank you, Vayolen, for sharing the "Exposition" postal card.

Have seen reference to the card. But like the unicorn, no actual sighting.
