I found this letter stamp in my Egypt collection. I did not find it in Scott. Is it worth anything?

"British forces in Egypt" should be a tipoff this is a military stamp. This is in Scott as M5, 2016 catalog value at $55 for mint.

British Forces in Egypt, 1934/35. There are two perforation varieties 14.5 x 14 (GBP55) and 13.5 x 14 (GBP5.5). They were sold by the army as approved stamps for postage, and we're used by troops in lieu of the postage stamps of Egypt until the end of 1935. Sorry I don't have the Scott number but they are SGA7/A9, found after the main Egypt section.
