Hello,
can someone help me with this question?

How much do you think is the value of the stamp on the left side?
I found it on a page writen "grey brown 1882", could ist be a #205c?

Thanks for your help and opinions!

It's really hard to tell.
Here is the note under the listing of 205C in my 2014 Scott Specialized Catalogue;
"Although Post Office records indicate that 2,463 examples of the 205C Garfield Special Printing were sold, almost all of these stamps appear to have been from supplies of the regular issue No 205.
The actual Special Printings, No 205C, came from a small supply sent to the Third Assistant Post Master General before the regular issue was available. Only 22 examples have been certified as genuine Special Printings."

It is a regular 205. Do not let the color description and difference between the two fool you. The so-called "yellow-brown" looks just like your stamp for the most part.

As rogdcam said, Do not let the color description and difference between the two fool you. Here is a block of 205's that I have. It is that gray brown color.
