Here are most of the Washington stamps that came with the others. I know its almost impossible to tell the types by pics. Having researched for a couple of days on how to tell a more rare variety from the workhorses, I'm finding that it's going to take a little more time then I have at the moment. So I was going to post them on one of the local buy and sell apps and was wondering if $50 would be a fair price or if there is anything from the pics that anyone sees that my be worth looking further into first.

I don't know why, but Poughkeepsie is one of those American names that
seems to mean something to me, along with that other name Oxenard

checked all my stamps, and the only stamp I have is a 1c Poughkeepsie Precancel.
Weird.

I think you will be hard pressed to find a buyer at $50, but then stranger things happen all the time.
ps. to Rod no "e" in Oxnard

Definitive stamps of the mid-1900s were printed in absolutely HUGE quantities as the workhorse stamps of their era. Even the modest showing here is evidence to that. From what is visible, they are worth about the cost of postage to ship them somewhere. Sorry.

No problem. You don't need to apologize. I had an offer of $50 for them already and so it sounds like it was a fair offer. No worries it wasn't on any stamp collector forum, it was from a local buy sell app. I may consider selling them cheaper then that to the person, if they aren't worth $50, then they just aren't. I do appreciate all of the responses. Short and to the point is absolutely fine, I do understand.

There's nothing that I should watch for as far as rare type or line pair in any of them right? I know I saw a couple of line pairs in the ones that there's so many of in the box but if they hold no collector value then I'm okay with that. I have a ton of stamps and cut squares from the early to mid 1900's and was thinking that I may be able to make some awesome looking album covers out of them. It's sounding more and more like that may be a good use for them since they're really not collectible.

OK guys, I'm a newbie here and trying to understand the differences in the routine Washington/Franklin stamps and the more collectable ones. What is it that you are able to see so easily from these pics to know these are the more common variety without measuring the perforations or whatever it is you look for?

They're quite common stamps that you could have a bundle of. Just keep them on paper. They worth more like that.
