Hello everyone.
This is my first post so please go easy on me :D
I have 4 books of fairly old stamps which span every country from around 1900. I know old doesn't mean valuable and I wont post pages of photos but I thought some of the stamps from the USA section of the books may be of interest/value. Below is a selection of the stamps in that section.
Can anyone tell me if any of these stamps are of value or are of interest please?
Thank you for your help.

The 10 Special Delivery, Scott No. E3, in used condition catalogs $50 (2019 Scott Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps & Covers). Looks to be used with some light ink smudges, great color and very nice centering. Dave

Thanks for the info Dave. I've been trying to find that one on the stampworld.com catalogue (catalog) but can't find it at all. The photo does that one no justice. Anything over $5 in my stamp collection is a result for me haha.
Thanks again though.

Note that catalog values (including stampworld) typically do not reflect actual market values. For example, currently used E3 are selling in the $2-$7 range.
