Can you please tell me where these are from and rough idea if the value. Thanks. I'm thinking French and Russian and UK But the Russian looks strange. And the French have some kind of overprint. Oh and the UK I'm not sure about.

First two are French, the second of them being a post-WWI charity stamp. Third is from Morocco. Last two are GB, with the final one being a fiscal stamp. Negligible financial value.

OK, word of warning, catalogue value(CV) from a catalogue (unless are very old) only apply if the stamp is a certain quality (clean, fresh, light cancel, well-centered, no damage)....any faults can decrease value immensely...and if selling stamps, stamps usually only sell for a fraction of CV...

Picture 1: France P7, a newspaper stamp, looks mint hinged, so CV of $0.30, mint and used have same CV

2: France B12, a semipostal stamp, looks mint hinged, so CV of $0.50

3: French Morocco J17, postage due stamp, looks mint hinged, so CV of $0.80

4 Russia 62 or 81, probably 81, looks mint, I'll assume is hinged:
62 is brown violet and blue, and has vertical ribs if held up to the light CV$20, 81 is red brown and deep blue, no ribs, is wove paper, CV$0.25, is a dull violet and blue variety CV$1.40
It's not really an error, but probably was just badly printed (too little ink or bad impression or something), probably pretty common....

5 Great Britain 129, CV$22.50, but centering is not great so lesser CV...catalogue indicates badly centered and heavily cancelled Great Britain stamps can sell for 10-20% of CV..so $2.50-$5?..there are other color varieties of equal or greater CV, but it's sometimes hard to ID them...

6 Great Britain Fiscal/revenue, more specialized and not in regular catalogues, so ID and value less easy to find..
