First one is part of a UK franking machine impression.

Second one is part of a UK registered postal stationery envelope. These were reissued frequently to keep up with changes in the registration fee.

Third one is a piece of Indian postal stationery.

If they are all pieces, rather than complete items, I doubt they would have any value.

Agree, even if he had bothered using a more intelligent heading and GOOD scans, in the CORRECT Forum, still all landfill.

As a general rule you should never cut any postal items to shape, whether they be stamps, postmarks, postal stationery cutouts or whatever. It decreases their value, sometimes substantially (eg early imperfs of UK, India).

Its a bad habit to get into, as even an apparently worthless stamp could have a more valuable cancellation.
