Where to find values?

I just cleaned out my attic and found a stamp collecting book dated from 1954. There are pages upon pages of stamps, mostly canceled out. I am not a stamp collector but I do know these are old and could be worth a little something. Are there any good online resources to figure what I have and what it's worth?

I've also included a scan of a few stamps.

    Unfortunately, there really is not a one-stop online site that shows the identifying factors and values of stamps. The Scott catalogs are pretty good reference books on id'ing and getting a value; although value is usually way off of actual buying/selling prices. The stamps pictured are very low value due to condition; centering is bad and if any have other faults such as a crease, tear(even just a few millimeters), missing perf, cut corner,... the value drops even more. Scott catalog values are for stamps in very fine condition.

    If you have a stamp dealer in the area, they should be able to skim through the pages rather quickly and give you a rough estimate.
