How does one price a USED stamp, when the catalog only lists FDC and UNUSED ENTIRE?

What catalog are you using? In the United States the most common catalog it the Scott catalog.

Example line:
62 A6 1sh orange & blk 2.10 3.25

62 is the number
2.10 is the unused evaluation
3.25 is the used evaluation

It is worth 3.25 if it is in excellent condition and used in the proper time period. Otherwise someone could take unused 2.10 stamp and make it worth 3.25 by using it.

I should have been more specific. I am referring to UN Postal (Envelopes, Air Letter Sheets, and Post Cards.) I am using the Harris catalog with Scott issue numbers.

Got ya! Generally the items you are referring to are not collected used, but if they are it is very difficult to put a price on them.

Thanks to both of you. I sort of figured that, since they were not listed.

I have a load of thes UN items mint. I picked them up when I first started collecting. They cost me only pennies per item. I haven't seenor heard of any for about a decade. Though I haven't looked. I suspect they are so common or unpopular they paradoxically become scarce.
