I received a ton of stamps the other day, I'd say there's probably a good 400-500+ stamps, all from different time frames and countries. Some are labeled with dates from the late 1890's and early 1900's. I took a few pictures last night, is there anyone that can help me get an idea of what I have, or if there's anything more than face value?

I did do a bit of looking last night, I found out quite a bit about this one stamp that I really liked. The stamp looks like a mini vinyl record, but apparently it can actually play music as well, which I thought was really cool. I think the Wikipedia page said it was from Bhutan, around 1976. Couldn't find if it was valuable or not though. Again, if anyone knows more that would be great!

I'll try my best to get pictures posted.

Edit: Just realized most of the pictures I took last night were mostly of Bhutan stamps, mostly because those were some of the coolest looking stamps that I saw while doing a quick look-through. There's many more from all different countries... Cook Island, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Malaysia, USA, Canada, etc.

Thank you! :)

They are really cool looking stamps. I edited my original post with the pictures I took last night, I can take more tonight as well. There's just so many stamps, mostly in sleeves like above, but then there's post cards and envelopes, and stamps not even displayed as well. There's so much to go through, haha.

You could check out the site; www.stampworld.com that lists all of these stamps and give approximate retail values

500 stamps are going to be well short of "tons"
Most collectors here would have tens of thousands.

Most of what you show are fairly common, the stand out piece for me is the Bhutan Postmark, lovely stuff, but not valuable.

A good start to a world wide collection.
You don't say what you paid, but if I were buying, I'd probably see your collection shown for perhaps $10 - $25 depending on the venue.
I am not aufait with the Tongan notes, not seen them before.

The Canada are common and of no value.
