I find the 3/8 and 5/8 stamps interesting, as I simply do not have this series in my collection. (Typically, I do not buy stamps and therefore am not seeking to buy these.) The 3/8 stamp appears to be a 1914 revenue/proprietary stamp, SCOTT # RB34 or RB46. The 5/8 stamp is SCOTT # RB35 or RB48.

I have attempted to identify approximately the first half of the photographs posted this morning, utilizing an old edition of the "SCOTT Specialized Catalogue of U.S. Stamps and Covers." I possess no knowledge of older stamps and therefore leave further commentary to the experts.

  • 2 red brown (or pale red brown) George Washington, SCOTT # 210 (or unlikely 211B), issued in 1883.

  • 3 violet (or similar color) George Washington, numerous varieties triggering several SCOTT #'s, originally issued in 1908. Due to the tiny holes within the stamp, it is called a "perfin." Perfins are created by institutions or companies to mark a stamp as private property, thereby preventing theft. Thus, the pattern of tiny dots identify which company owned the stamp.

  • 5 blue George Washington, numerous varieties triggering several SCOTT #'s, originally issued in 1908.

  • 3 ultramarine or blue Locomotive, originally issued in 1869. Due to multiple printings and potential high value, I hope an expert chimes in with further commentary.

  • 1 green George Washington, numerous varieties triggering several SCOTT #'s, originally issued in 1912.

  • 10 ultramarine Specialy Delivery messenger on bicycle, numerous varieties triggering several SCOTT #'s, originally issued in 1902.

  • 4 black Silver Centennial, SCOTT # 1130, issued in 1959.

  • 3 violet Battle of Brooklyn, SCOTT # 1003, issued in 1951.

  • 1 ultramarine (or similar color) Benjamin Franklin, numerous varieties triggering several SCOTT #'s, originally issued in 1870.

  • 5 bright blue Chinese Resistance, SCOTT # 906, issued in 1942.

  • 50 carmine (or dull carmine) Postage Due, SCOTT # J76 (or J86), originally issued in 1930.


The previously referenced Zeppelin stamps, and other oldies, would probably be of interest to people within this online community.

New2stamps007, Please try to post your images with the stamps aligned upright.

Since you asked if they are worth anything. . .

The 1869 3-cent locomotive is Scott #114. It looks to be in decent condition from the front, except for the rounded corner. It is one of the highest valued stamps you've shown a single photo of. According to my 2017 Scott catalog, it would have a value of $17.50 if it was undamaged with very fine (VF) centering, but it is neither, so the resale value would likely be less than a quarter of catalog value.

The 1-cent gray blue Franklin stamp with the Boston Mass cancel was issued in 1881, and is is Scott #206. It has a 2017 catalog value of $1.00, but it is damaged.

Some of the other higher values are the three Columbus stamps, but unfortunately, they had perforations cut off, rendering them worthless from a resale standpoint.

They were all given to me from my late grandfather. I have tons of WWII memorabilia loads of nazi pendants he collected and other various things. Just wanted to catalog them all and give them to my son when he comes of age
