My mom found some late 1970's, early 1980's that my dad brought home from Panama and I'm trying to figure out how much they are worth. Can anyone please help me?

Wait, he brought them home in the 1980s or they are from the 1980s. Scans or pictures would be really helpful. If from the 70s/80s I doubt they are worth much of anything (just the fact that they were printing the stamps in the hundred millions, I think) but I stand to be corrected.

That may be a bit of an exaggeration for a country of 2 million (in 1980). Still, new12collector has a point. Many of the stamps produced in/for Panama during this time.

Do please share images of the stamps you have. I (and others here) collect Panama stamps actively.

Cheers,
Smauggie

Mostly yes. Not always, though.
