    Those mint blocks sheets in photo 3 look nice. Those should be MNH - mint and never hinged. In the US there is a catalogue system called the Scott Catalogue which has a number for each type of sheet., stamp etc..

    United States postage stamp - Surrender of Cornwallis, Scott catalogue number: 1686f (General Issue) it was first issued May 29, 1976.
