Question
I found a shoebox filled with letters from all over the world (cancelled stamps) and then a bunch of "Dedicated to the Hobby Industry of America" envelopes with various single cancelled stamps.  All are late 1960-early 1970s.  Tom Sawyer $.08, The Charles W. Morgan $.08  Are they of any value?
Thank you

Answer
Generally speaking, stamps from that era are relatively common as stamps and somewhat too modern to have caught the interest of postal history collectors.

There is always the possibility that some collector would find some of your covers of interest but unless there is something really special probably in the 25-cent to $1 range.  

Most dealers will probably not be interested in making an offer, at least without examination.
