I have been going through a box of stuff from my deceased aunt and found a bunch of Deutches Reich stamps. I don't know if they are collectible or what I should do with them. I am not a stamp collector myself but don't want to just throw them away. Seeking advice on what I should do.

You could post some pictures of the oldest ones, but odds are that (some) Germany are not very valuable and some are pretty difficult to identify based on watermark and perforation. Looking forward to your pics, and welcome to the hobby.

Yes, just add a new response, just like you replied to my response. Scanning and uploading can sometimes be difficult. You can always review this tutorial:

If they turn out to be reasonably common,
place in an envelope, write "Free for you" and slip it into a stamp catalogue at your Library.
An act of random kindness.

Hello and welcome!

I collect German Reich and as years go by is getting more difficult to find some of them.
I would suggest that you contact some local Philatelic Club and ask for directions.
