I found some Edison Diamond Disc records with no labels,
some are stamped, (embeded) "DISCARDED" .
Worth, collectible?

I wouldn't assign any extra value to these unless they're unissued items. Years ago, I got several dozen of these in a large collection. Most of the material on them wasn't terribly interesting. If memory serves (and it may not), these were in-house test pressings eventually discarded and employees were allowed to take them home.

Regarding your other comment about Diamond Discs with no labels, this happens all the time. Whatever Edison used to glue the labels on deteriorates over the years, especially in humid storage. Charles Gregory published a 4-volume set of Diamond Disc labels and some collectors photocopy his labels and glue the copies onto their discs. The set is available from APS.
