Stamp collections may have value if:

* fresh and true colours, not stuck to the page, no portion of the stamp missing, no creases or other damage
** in British “old” money, generally stamps above the 1/- (one shilling) face value

 
Stamp collections are less likely (unlikely) to have value if:

Other notes:

British Penny Blacks (1d black) are famous, but unfortunately are neither fabulously valuable, nor rare. 68 million were produced and sold. Depending on condition (and other factors) they are currently worth typically £40-£100 each (less for poor quality, much more for superb).

Older stamps still on the original envelopes may be worth a premium (sometimes a considerable premium) over and above the value of the stamps used to frank the letter.

Decimal currency British stamps (with face values in £p and not £sd) are (legally) widely traded at prices well below their nominal face value.

Stamps with genuine errors of production (for example missing colours) are often worth considerably more than “normal” issues.

Common stamps frequently have less common varieties, such as shades of colour. The one you have in front of you is statistically much more likely to be the common and cheaper variety, than it is the rare and expensive one.

Sale by auction will ensure that your stamps fetch a competitive price. Selling directly to a dealer may achieve a better net result.
For the highest possible price, sell them yourself (such as on e-Bay), but if you do so, bear in mind that the best items always sell first and dealers are unlikely to want to buy a “rump” or “remaindered” lot, when the best stamps are no longer there.
