New to Stamps and May Need help on if I may have a Great Buy or Not!

One of the many Stamps I have found, Will Post up a Few Interesting Stamps as I find them...Hoping at least 1 Gem will come out of this Massive Haul!

Anyone Know what I got Here?...I Have a Scott 12 in 1 Gauge on Order to help me figure out Perforations and such, But Definitely am a little Overwhelmed by the Amount of Pre 1940 Stamps in this Haul!

Thanks for the Reply, Im Sure I have Mostly Common Stamps, From the Look of things it Looks Pretty hard to Find a Gem in a Collection!

Is Stamp Smarter a Good Online Referance to all the Stamps Numbers and Population Numbers?

Stamp Smarter has over 2500+ pages of info, for US stamps here is a good place to start (the 'visual identifier pages).
