The first step to valuation is identification. Typically this can be done with a catalogue available at many public libraries.

Looking in my "SCOTT Specialize Catalogue of U.S.Stamps and Covers," I would say these stamps are:

  • 1/2˘ SCOTT # J69 or J79 (precise identification is based upon perforation measurement)

  • 1˘ SCOTT # J70 or J80 (precise identification is based upon perforation measurement)

  • 2˘ SCOTT # J71 or J81 (precise identification is based upon perforation measurement)

  • 3˘ SCOTT # J72 or J82 (precise identification is based upon perforation measurement)

  • 5˘ SCOTT # J73 or J83 (precise identification is based upon perforation measurement)



In my personal experience, the J80 series is readily available in mass surplus. Personally, I have not seen many of the J70 series. I will not quote values due to the age of my catalogue.

The 2 and 5 cent are J81 and J83 respectively. The others are most likely J79, J80, and J82. J69 - J78 were printed on the flat plate press and J79 - J87 was printed on the rotary press. J69 - J78 are perforated 11x11 and J79 - J87 are 11x10˝. You'll need to check.

I should have mentioned the resource at StampSmarter.com, specifically the identification tool 1847usa: http://www.stampsmarter.com/1847usa/1847Home.html

Within the 1847usa identifier, this page references the depicted stamps. http://www.stampsmarter.com/1847usa...Due1930.html
