That depends on your definition of "Value." The 1939 Duck Stamp is probably the most valuable at around $30. The rest are pretty common and many have quality problems.

Well pbmorris has it well covered. However the duck hunting stamp may have so issue depending what the rad coloration looks like in real life. Also the 4 cent Lincoln looks unused and if so, it has a solid full face value of 4 cents on your next letter or package.

Thanks for the information. My grandfather left me his stamp collection and I'm finally going through it. I have no clue about stamps. Lol

I am not trying to be a downer, but the 'staining' on the duck stamp implies to me that it probably has no gum on the reverse (like maybe something spilled on it, resulting in the red staining) or, at best, disturbed gum. Its real value (based on condition) would be quite low - you might get $5 or $10 for it if you could find a buyer on, say, eBay. If it is creased, torn, or thinned (can't tell from the scan, but quite possible given the visible condition) it would be worth less than that. The other stamps are quite common and not worth much (pennies). I am sorry.

ETA: A 'genuine' used Duck stamp has a signature - I don't see one here. Someone may have interest if it is canceled with a clear town cancellation, but I don't see that either. It appears to be somewhere between (or outside of the spectrum) used and unused, which is not a good thing.

I don't have anything to add about values here. But have a question for you uhoh - Are you interested in becoming a stamp collector or simply disposing of what you received? For me, the question when I receive stamps is not "how much are they worth" but rather "do I have these stamps"? And next, "do I like these stamps?" If you just wish to dispose of the stamps, don't expect to receive lots of money for them as, has been pointed out here, most stamps in general have little monetary value. They are worth something to the collector only.
