Maybe someone knows this issue of the 2 cent stamp Washington! Only the profile is recognizable?
Maybe it was a proof print?
Unfortunately, I can not find comparative photos on the internet!
Only the article in WIKI:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washi...nklin_Issues
maybe it's a fake?
I am from Austria - for a tip or help I would be grateful!

Welcome,
This is a 'cutout' from an embossed envelope.

Before it was cut from the envelope, it looked like this

Thank you for your prompt reply! That was the puzzle solution!
I did not know the English expression for "postal stationery"!
You say "embossed envelope"?
I think since this stamp has been cut out, does it no longer have any value?
I still have such a cut.
I now found examples and exact numbering on this website:
http://dubinweb.com/USstampedenvelopes/0.02.html

My cut is the design U 93 and U 86

In german we say "Ganzsache " = "postal stationery" - see Picture

This is my Website with US-Stamp "one Cent" "Washington / Franklin" issue:
***Please no 'drive-by' links***
(use Translation buttom!)

Yes, an embossed envelope is a type of postal stationery.
Collecting 'cut squares' is not as popular as it once was, the trend has moved towards collecting the entire envelope. As such, cut squares are not valued highly but US specialized catalogs do still publish cut squares values.

Many thanks for the excerpts from the catalog.
It depends on how rare such a cut is?
In Austria you do not get anything for a cut of a postal stationery anymore! But also in Austria there are rare goose things or very frequent occurring!
I attach two photos to it: one with the old emperor of Austria - very common
and one with the young emperor - rarely ...!

What is a good stamp catalog for the USA?
I only use "stampworld" online

The Scott Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps is the best one-volume catalog of US stamps. It includes detailed listings for all US postal stationery issues, among many other things.
