These are very ordinary stamps and sorry but not even slightly rare…

Welcome to the board! Could you add a post to the introduction thread per the sign-up instructions!

Aside from that, it's more usual for philatelic matters to be a lack of detracting factors such as ripped off or badly damaged stamps, or for the postmark to be a boost (relevant location/date for the postcard content and/or message, confirmation of very early date, etc.) than for "rare stamps" to be found, as such.

And even when the stamps are relevant to value those are, often as not, common stamps with non-philatelic usage; think, for example, hyperinflation in Germany, genuine pre-modern Chinese stamped cards, stamped cards from less frequently seen locations, etc.

Hi,

Please use the "Place inline" button when posting images to avoid the ugly white border with the word "Attachments" around every image.

Is the 'caps lock' key on your computer broken?

Asking for free advice, and then lazily loading things sideways and upside down is not a good look. :roll: :!:

The answer to your question is that the postage rates at the height of the postcard boom remained static for decades, and the same stamps were used for all of that period in many countries.

There for there were literally millions of them, and most are unlikely to be as valuable as the cards that they are on.

Apologies for poor information and photographs as it was my first time on sites. It is hopeful his tme that a better response would be given.The aim was to attempt to get a value, as have no knowledge, not an avid collector and would they be worth selling

Translating "common stamps on postcard" to monetary value for someone who has no idea where the prices are, you should be happy if you were offered 1 USD each. Without postcard their value would be significantly less. Someone with more pricing knowledge can correct that if they bother.
