Thank you again. I am confused re: the fugitive ink in relation to this stamp.


Fugitive ink just means it is soluble in water, most are not, but some like Netherlands Indies, the stamp image completely disappears in water.
Your is probably fine, I just don't like to presume to others.

If you have stamps from many countries, then get a copy of scott standard postage stamp catalogue for you local library. It comes in 6 volumes based on alphabetical order of the countries. This will be your best resource. For US Scott specialized catalogue for US works the best, also available from your local library. And remember that most stamps with catalogue value of $0.28 are usually worth a penny or two in a real world, with some exceptions.
