I'm afraid that these appear to be common stamps with virtually no commercial value, although, if the Audubon stamps are mint, they can be used for postage.

Jsmith11390: welcome to the Forum. I noticed that some of the stamps have corners or other pieces missing. Those have no value and can be discarded. Only time I keep a damaged stamp like those is if the catalog value is very high; and then, it is just a space filler until a better copy comes along..

Some are of interest (though not of monetary value).

In scan 1, you have some US pre-cancels (the ones in the top-left corner, with lines and place names printed over the top). Could be the start of a collection. You also have a postal stationery cut-out (the circular design) and a part of a dumb cancel (I only just learned about these) - the red stamp right of centre, with part of an "O" printed over the corner.

Scan 2, more pre-cancels and another cut-out. Also a few of the celebrated 'Presidents' series (the green 1 cent stamps of the left, and others of a similar design).

Scan 6 - several German hyper-inflation stamps with extraordinary face-values. And another dumb cancel almong the US ones.

If you are interested in collecting, it's worth reading up on these to understand what you have.

Understanding "catalog value" is a study that takes time and experience along with the stamps themselves. Quite fun.

Also the ones with the corners missing the corners are there they are bent underneath I'm just afraid to touch them yet and fix them because of the age of some
