Request your help on identifying this stamp. I spent the last 3 hours counting perforations and I'm going batty. Anyway, I hope the photo is clear enough. I used a flash, so the color might be off a bit. Thanks so much!

Quick answer: no, you have a super common stamp. Click on the search and search for "596" and see 100s of threads on this topic.

If you decide not to read the entire article, at least examine the appendix at the end.

Learning why it is not a 596 utilizing Stamp Smarter is excellent. The Sebastopol CA precancel knocks it out right away though.
