Honestly, the picture tells us nothing. The binders themselves are obviously homemade, in very poor condition, and worthless.

What matters are the stamps inside. Where are those pictures?

The 4800k blue stamp with portrait of Wilhelm Kress appears to be Scott C11. Scott value (2013 catalog) $3.00 used or unused.

The binders and pages are by Yvert, rather than being homemade - with a protective paper covering on top. Usually worth leaving material in old albums if you're planning on selling via eBay.

About what I'd expect given the condition of the binders, but you could find a few small treasures. All in all not a fortune by any means, but perhaps a nice dinner or two, if you find the right buyer(s).

I would advise against a quick judgement with this album. Many more pics are needed.

Where was the original collector of these albums located. I would look at Countries from that region. I would also like to see the US and Canada sections. These are the type of albums that can produce sleepers.

I look forward to more images Pancho. Any Latin American countries would be great to see since your Grandfather collected while living there.

British Guiana, Brazil, and Peru are all good to show—the oldest stamps. And the UK, if present.
