Still have a LOT of coins to go through, but I wanted to start looking through the stamps as well. I can take a better photo of it, but here is the first stamp I selected from 1 of 2 books. I inherited a huge collection from a friend as a Christmas present.

What would you like to know about it?

It is from the 4th Bureau issue and it's a used stamp.

Welcome to the forum. Why don't you scan some of the oldest US stamps and let us comment on them?

Sorry, forgot to add that XD

Thanks for the welcome

It's a bit difficult to scan them, the book is almost falling apart.
The book is really thick and some loose stamps are falling out. I have the urge to gently cut the pages out...
Here are two photos. The second one has the stamp in question. It's looks a bit lighter than it should. I think...

Nice job loading the images

The group you show is the 4th bureau issue. They were printed 2 ways, flat plate and rotary press and the 1 Franklin stamps colors will be lighter (Yellow / Green) for the rotary press printing.

First thing you will need is a perforation gauge, you can find them on eBay for a few $. Then I'd check my local library for some Scott catalogues, most have them.
