All of these stamps are used (with varying degrees of postal marks), and at some stage have been mounted.

Some of these American stamps have hinges or parts of hinges. Others may just have adhesive marks left over from the hinges, and some are clear on the back.

Also several of these stamps have a penciled number on the reverse. These coincide, within a few digits, with the Gibbons catalogue numbers.
