A World Stamp Catalog is often a useful starting point, but they seldom give all the variants, so you may need a good catalog for the country concernced, or you may need to consult an expert. It's also useful to look on eBay, but please bear in mind that in some cases the 'same' stamp may have differences not visible on eBay, such as different watermarks. I suggest to use first the Scott's Catalog (go to your local library). Then you can go to E Bay; but Scott Catalog is the "Bible of Stamps," and you can have a very good idea about the price depending on the type of the stamp you have. You will need to know how to identify the different watermarks, color variations, different perforations, etc.
