These are just a few of the lot. The Turkish stamps I believe to be the most valuable. I'm still evaluating.

The Turkish stamps are postage dues from 1869 or 1871 (Scott J24 0r J34 depending on perforations) with a cat value of about $.15.

The Peruvian 1 dinero blue stamps are difficult to identify with the poor resolution provided. Would need to see what is going on in the spandrels and the border.

The Morales Bermudez overprints all have a value of under a dollar each. The 50c stamp from Peru is curious as the catalog says it should be green. Someone with more knowledge than I will need to help you on that one

I've long since sold my Peruvian stamps, but my memory is that there were a couple of issues of those designs, hence the colour change.

Thats the way all estate sales cook it, rare and overdone.

Everyone of us, no exceptions, holds the fascination of finding a stamp, that is relatively scarce, perhaps of more value, giving it a particular marque amongst collectors of that discipline.
And that's fine, it can drive research.

But to declare a stamp/s as "Rare" without due knowledge or research, can make one look rather foolish.

I agree with that Rod. The chances of finding that elusive "rare" stamp are at astronomical odds of having it happen. But oh to dream, your right that it drives study and enlightenment.

The Turkish stamps need to have a much clearer image... It looks like the one at the right/down has pin perfs, so would be Scott J34. I can't tell which perfs the other has, if pin perfs the value is the same as the first, if perf 13.5 then J24. In my old 2009 catalog they have the same value, $2.50. Since they are pretty common I wouldn't expect the value to have changed much in the last few years. Neither one has exemplary centering, I'd suggest a retail price of around $1.00 unless they are MNH.
