If not mistaken the O.B. is for official use - Official Buisness. Why not leave it until you find the actual one for the spot or at the very least put it in the blank spot alongside. Your album, your choice.

Yours looks like a typewritten overprint, not listed by Scott. That's commonly done even in recent years. There are also handwritten ones.

Thanks for the reply I decided to leave it in the same spot, reading about few replies and looking thru internet its considered same stamp with OB stamped and periods typed. Found multiples without O.B in the collection I guess when u looking for just one stamp in the collection they just keep poping up
