There are multiple slightly different dies for this design -- this design was in use for decades and was recut many times. Further, there are differing color shades for both the stamp and the envelope paper. The differences between the dies are minute (slightly thicker or thinner letters, the shape of the neckline, the position of the top of the head, etc. all vary). I don't think any of yours are rare, though a couple scarce varieties do exist.

Pick up the Scott Specialized Catalog of US Stamps, or the first volume of the general Scott Catalog containing the United States. Under stamped envelopes, both catalogs list the different dies and how they are distinguished (the specialized catalog has bigger illustrations and additional information, and is generally the better reference). These books will quite likely be available at a local library.

RCstamps, may I also suggest you check with the United Postal Stationery Society at www.upss.org ? They have issued a catalog of these covers two years ago that has great info on IDing these.
