Hello, and welcome. I'm afraid that these are very common stamps - essentially worthless in money terms.

Well, "Introduce Yourself" is the section where new members are supposed do exactly (and only) that, though very commonly also post more substantial questions. The various other categories/sections are home to discussions within their respective areas.
Your stamps are very common, and interestingly given inflation, may actually have face values less than the paper they're printed on (mostly but not entirely joking ). We approach valuation the same way as any rational actor might: by factoring and weighing such things as catalog (Scott, Michel, Stanley Gibbons, etc) value, condition, provenance, and historical sales transactions.

ianod62,

Enjoy having fun with stamps! That is the name of this game.

Collecting for the enjoyment of collecting, whatever that might be, is the name of the game. Don't hesitate to ask questions especially if you need basic information and especially more advanced sources of information for any possible topic. You should be able to find folks on this board a little further along on their collecting journey glad to share experiences.

My personal bias is a used stamp loses the story of its journey in the postal service when it is removed from the cover it transported to its destination. Collecting postal history adds a whole new aspect to your journey in our hobby.

Wishing you many enjoyable future days in our hobby. Russ
