The scanned stamps are extremely common and essentially worthless. They, like a lot of Eastern Europe stamps were sold in kiddies packs of, for example, 1000 different stamps for $1.00, or 100 for 5 cents from the '60's on.

You will find them in almost every general stamp collection on the planet.

"Once upon a time", well in fact a bit over 10 years ago, I sold a box of well over 100,000 stamps for $A200 and there would have been probably dozens of stamps of your three, which were actually stamps from two much longer series - about 40 different stamps in total:

Well Magyar Posta indicates that these are stamp issues from Hungary.

Top left: Hungary 1953 50f buildings.

Top right: Hungary 1952 50f Buildings of the Five Year Plan in Budapest

Bottom: Hungary 1963 10f Means of Transport (Ship at Chain Bridge).

Now with that info, you'll be able to look them up in a catalogue. Have you got Stanely Gibbons Stamps of the World? Worthwhile, and it's great fun even just flicking through the pages and looking at the stamps you don't already have in your collection. Also some useful references or further information to the postal history.

A catalogue will also tell you the slight differences between issues. I'm wondering about this now because Colnect suggests that the stamp in the top left was also issued in 1958. Care to spot the difference?

Most of the building stamps were issued in two sizes, where the image size (but not the stamp size) changed by 1mm or so. Without checking the catalogue I would say the image was reduced. Typically both versions are common and cheap.

It may be worthless, but I think it makes for a very attractive and well presented set. And they they don't look like the usual CTO examples.

I have been building a good set of postally used examples with clealy displayed town/city names.
