So I inherited some stamps from grandpa who have been traveling the world in hes younger years as a sailor. Stamps from all over the world ranging from 1800s to 1999. Two full books. Only have one image now but more will come. Hope to get someone to help me out which one is worth anything. He told me that there is quit a few valuable ones. But he got sick before I inherited it

Many people who think they have a "valuable" collection are referring to one of two things (not always but often) : how old they are and how much they paid for them. Either or both of these facts may be actually insignificant. You need to look at quality, condition, rarity and what people have paid / are willing to pay for them. The latter item is perhaps the most impt. if selling is your goal.

Welcome, Acherian!

We'll have to see more of the collection to make a more accurate evaluation.

The stamps you've shown aren't valuable, but some aren't so common as to be nearly worthless, either. Notably, I see some Chinese Regional issues that are an interesting study. You may have a nice collection on your hands!
