      I was into stamps for a while, and to be honest the post cards they are affixed to are probably worth more than the stamps pictured.(minus the Jefferson) They are cancelled and fairly common issues. I may be wrong, it's been a while. I like the cancellation marks, my grandfather collected rare wartime German postmarks, along with everything else under the sun.

      MattyG, AR8Jason, Mustangtony, thank you so much for your help!
      Mustangtony, such a great explanation. :) I got myself familiar with some of them by checking many websites, Scott #, perf., etc.. very detailed and confusing :/
      It is impossible to take pics of all the post cards, but I would do 10/day (I have ~200 total)
      40 years of collecting stamps is very impressive! :) My small collection was inherited from our old neighbor , before she went to a nursing home. Never really inquired about them, so will have to dig those too.
      The 200 post cards I was talking about, got discovered the other day at our local antique store.
      I am on the mission now :) finding the values to each stamp/post card.
      Mustangtony, that was such a generous offer!! I don't want to take something you might need, but if you are sure you don't need it I would be more than HAPPY to take it :)
      And, yes all of the post cards are pictured..will start taking pics tomorrow.
      Thanks again!

      I think the prestamped Jefferson post card is this one

      Just got a Treasury of Stamps and Blackbook guide books from the library..still confused :/

      After I posted the other day I got ~150 post cards all used with stamps.
      So, here is the approximate total:
      94 1c Franklin stamps
      22 1 c Washington
      7 2 c Washington
      Other US, and worldwide stamps as well.
      My inherited collection is not included in any of these (have to dig them from the storage)

      Will start taking pics hopefully today...just hopping that out of these will be at least one, just one, that is valuable :)

      I will be posting pics soon...AR8Jason, I was not sure what to look for except mentioning Scott stamps value, but the librarian was not familiar..I took what they had at the time. Would you mind writing the exact book info, please?
