can u please tell me how much the value of this stamps. .. Thank you

Answer
Karim,

The most valuable stamp on the stockcard appears to be the 8 "Kans." overprint issue.  If the stamp is in sound condition with original gum, it is valued between $72.50 and $145, depending on whether the stamp was previously hinged to an album page.  The least valuable stamp appears to be the 2 Washington coil pair, valued at 85 to $1.70, again depending on the gum.

The page with the 1922-1925 flat plate issues is a different story.  While there are potentially some valuable stamps (like the $2 Capitol issue which appears to be unused), the majority of the stamps appear to be affected by tape stains.  If this is indeed the case, then the potential value of the stamps is greatly reduced.

I recommend showing the stamps to an experienced philatelist who can personally examine each stamp and give you an accurate assessment of your holdings.  Take care when handling the stamps, as any kind of damage greatly affects their value.
