Dog - hello, and welcome. There's no point in going anywhere near a Scott catalogue. Your library - if still kicking - should have a copy of the Gibbons Commonwealth catalogue. Assume that its prices, which are ordinarily for stamps in perfect condition, will be five to ten times the real world value. Any defects will drastically reduce value.

Edit: sorry, Dog, by "defect", I thought you meant damage, rather than error.

It depends on the stamp and the type of defect. Some stamps are known for perforation errors, others color and others offset or inverted printing. If it is a known error, it is usually mentioned in the catalog. Others such as creases, and inking errors are evaluated based on the stamp and degree of error.

The page of English stamps has quite common stamps. The inverted watermarks are not much more expensive than the ordinary stamps. You, however, might check if the orange 2d stamp "488 inv" is not, in fact, SG465. The difference is that SG488 is pale orange and SG465 is orange. The former with inverted watermark is catalogued at less than 1 in fine used condition, the latter at about 20.

The bottom stamp (1947, silver wedding of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth) is the lower value of a pair. It was issued together with a 1 stamp. That would have been a stamp with a decent catalogue price.

It appears someone indeed used a Stanley Gibbons catalogue and nicely wrote up the collection.

The disturbance in the sea over "liz" in the 5d RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 stamp (SG778, Specialised W141) is a minor constant flaw noted in the SG Specialised Catalogue. It appears on all fifth stamps in the second row of stamps. The cylinder combination (1A 1B 1C 1D no dot) is the only one used. The stamp itself has a minimal catalogue price. Being a minor constant flaw, it might command a small premium, but demand for it might be low: it has not been assigned a full catalogue listing.

The "spur at the top right of the Queen's head" on the 9d "Votes for women" stamp also is noted as a minor constant flaw, as is the "flaw in lower part of S of DISCOVERY" on the 1/9 "James Cook" stamp from the same set.

The "Blister on hand" on the painting of Queen Elizabeth I is a listed constant flaw. The stamp itself (Specialised W138) was 10p in the 1998 edition of the Stanley Gibbons Specialised Catalogue. The variety that has catalogue number W138f was priced at 3. Prices won't have changed much since 1998.

Some very nice sets in the mix. The Falkands birds definitives appear mint and complete. Same with the Fiji definitives. Nauru may be complete, though 1-2 stamps may be missing. Nice start to a nice collection.

Nice Jamaica war stamps. You may have some value there if there are no periods after the "p" on some of those stamps. A better scan or photo would be nice to see. By some value I don't mean thousands, but possibly $3-25 ea. Be glad to comment more, but would need larger/more detailed scans.

I think there could be good amount of value to your Mauritius page.

Some nice looking stuff there. I use the Scott catalogue, as I'm from the US, but Stanley Gibbons makes mores sense for you, since you're in the UK.

Now for some CV's... beware that this just gives a general value, and actual selling prices would be percentage of it, but it gives you and idea..

Going from top to bottom, left to right:

If unused, $65.

if unused, probably $26

if unused, 17.5, 4.5

2.75, 2.75, 2.5, 12

1.75
