Some of my stamps are on the list with the rarest stamps from Ireland, some of them I didn't find at all online, maybe because I'm new to this. I will upload some images, maybe someone can help determine the valor pls, so I can put a reserve limit at the auctions where I will try to sell them. Thank you.

I'm not sure what list you might be referring to, I at least see nothing rare, monetarily valuable, or special in these pictures.

You'd struggle to get a Euro for these, I'm afraid.

I am with both previous posters. I have no idea what list you have seen, but your stamps may be on the list with most common stamps of Ireland. Furthermore, most are severly damaged.
There will not be a serious auction house that will list these stamps. They would not be worth the cost of postage for any buyer.

You might want to read the descriptions of those rarest stamps. They are variations that are rare. Your second block in the first picture is perforated. The rare stamp is a block that is imperforate.

It is the only issue on that list.

Please, read the entry and note it says imperforate left corner block. Your stamps are perforated.

Jerry, many of us have been where you are after receiving, inheriting, finding, stamps.

There are many factors that go into the rarity of a stamp, including design (including missing sections or inverted), paper, perforation (or lack of), watermark on the paper, quality (centering, damage,etc.), number printed, and more.

In the case of your stamps, although they appear to generally resemble one that is rare, they are very common because they lack something that makes them rare.

Most of your stamps are extremely common and in a terrible state. They are not even what is called "space fillers;" i.e, stamps that are defective and used to fill an empty space in an album until a better one can be found.

Philately can very much be a hobby of details. A slight change in color, or perforation, or a single missing or additional line on someone's face or border in certain print run. And that's assuming what you have is genuine to begin with. It's also a hobby of odds, read that description again carefully: not only is the valuable specimen imperforate, it is "the only recorded block." Which means that finding another isn't impossible, but the odds are certainly astronomical.

Similarly: highly common stamps. Mostly in bad condition.
Postcard value often depends on what they show, but by what is printed on the address sides, I expect they are mass-produced postcards aimed at tourists.
