Anyone know what Scott number this is so I can learn more about it? Or have any information they can give me so I can educate myself? From a collection I acquired. I am a beginner stamp collector so I apologize if this seems like a rookie question.

Thanks Don!
Do you know about this postmark? It seems different then the others I have seen.

There are two postal markings on the stamp. The black one cancels the stamp, while the red one is probably a "transit marking" indicating handling by a post office on the way to the letter's final destination. In this case the red marking was likely applied in London, since the main use of this 24-cent stamp was to pay the postage from the US to England.

The colors on this one are very difficult to determine, even by experienced collectors.

novicestamp428, here is a cover (recently up for sale on eBay) from New York to Manchester showing the same type of markings as are on your stamp (used with permission of the lister).

Interesting Dudley and Philazilla. Thank you for the information. I will continue to research. Intriguing how stamps are so different! I am sure it is worth pennies but that is okay! I like this cancellation as it is different from other stamps I have.
