Hello... Do you know how much this stamps is worth?

Answer
Hi Martin,
Thanks for the question.
Martin, the stamps you have are known as revenue stamps, these were used to pay taxes on various documents and other items. Although these are very old (around the 1870's), they are still pretty common. I wish I had better news, but unfortunately all of these have a catalog value of under $1 each.
Thanks again for the question,
Mike
