After a quick glance, the blue stamp with the Cincinnati postmark (next to the 30 cent dark brown buffalo stamp) on page two may be your best.
It's known as Scott's catalog number 124, or 145, or 156, or 182, or 206 depending on which variation you have. The stamp was issued between 1880 and 1891; again, depending on its variety.
If there is a page filled with stamps before the ones you have posted, I wish you would post a pic of that page.

Unfortunately, I started with the first page of the U.S. Stamp section. (This album's full of stamps from all over the world.) Are there any from other countries I should look for? I do have one more pic of the last page of U.S stamps.

Interesting, the Album, itself, may have collector value. I'm guessing it from the early '50s.
Don....

Don, that's a statement which gets my attention.

Somewhere on here I'd mentioned (I think) that over 30 years ago I'd purchased a WWI veteran's collection, which includes a couple of albums intact with a whole bunch of affixed stamps. I'll leave the collection to my son, won't be selling it. Your statement does add to my thoughts of valuation.....

mdj, what album are your pictures taken from? Like Scotts or someone else?

Edit: Oops, I just scrolled up and got the answer!

I'd have to dig through my boxes to find my collections right now, it's hotter than heck up here right now and I'm on the lazy side of things and will look when I'm not sweating my arse off!
