Not sure why you started a second thread for the same topic.

The stamps are common and some are damaged. No rarities. Sorry my friend.

As others have stated, the stamps you posted are very common. And are likely to be found in every "beginner" collection.

As such the market value is very low. For reference, check eBay. Likely you will find numerous similar offering priced at pennies per stamp.

There is so much more to our hobby than value. Your stamps mean the most to you because they are family, from your father.

Collecting for the enjoyment of collecting, whatever that might be, is the name of the game. Don't hesitate to ask questions especially if you need basic information and especially more advanced sources of information for any possible topic. You should be able to find folks on this board a little further along on their collecting journey glad to share experiences. Russ

At first sight, the same here. Those small stamps with Queen Elizabeth II (UK) require a check of the watermark and of graphite (black stripes on the back) and phosphor to see if there is a rarer variety. The mix of face values suggests these are ordinary sheet stamps that were used on millions of letters and will be the common types, even if they have phosphor or graphite bars.

The 2 Castle might be worth something (not much) if it is a specific printing. This picture shows too little detail to be sure. But my guess is again it is a common stamp.

The photograph does not provide sufficient detail to assess the quality. Nice stamps for a collection. As hoosierboy wrote: you determine the actual value. But most likely they are of little monetary value.

Fadi.

Thanks for sharing. While relatively common (and therefore of modest catalogue value), your stamps can form the foundation of a starter collection. Similar to how many other Forum members started.

Suggest you obtain a nice pair of tongs, perforation gauge, and watermark detector. You will then be equipped for a lifetime of stamp enjoyment.

And if you have a uv-lamp (long wave will suffice for most of these) you may even enjoy finding variations in phosphorescence and fluorescence. Those larger-sized Spanish 100 and 200 ptas stamps exist on ordinary and phosphorised paper. The latter type would be the rarer type.

That's quite amazing NSK.

I'm always pleased to see something completely outside my usual collecting interests!

Since you're beginnng with a wide variety of countries, you might want to look at the International Society of Worldwide Stamp Collectors (ISWSC), a very active group. http://www.iswsc.org/
