Hi, what can you tell me about the attached? how much are those worth? Thanks

Answer
The stamps in your picture appear to be a strip of three of Great Britain one penny red 1841 issue.  Centering is poor,the two stamps on the right appear to be faded, and a small piece is missing from the lower right corner of the right most stamp.  Suggested value of a used strip of three with no faults is $20.00.  Suggested adjustments to value are -75% for the centering with perforations into the design on two sides, -50% for the fading and another -25% for the nipped corner.  That leaves a retail value of about $1.00-$1.50 as an intact strip of three.  This value assumes no additional faults that I do not see in the picture.
