I have a stamp that I can not find any info on and was hoping someone could help me! I found this stamp in a dresser that I purchased at a flea market and I know that stamps can be valuable in some cases.

This is what's called a 'cinderella'. It was never intended for postage, and is most likely a locally made 'stamp' that allows someone to save $1 under some circumstance. There may have been a Gold Week in Podunk, Nebraska, in 1950, and this would have been worth $1 then. (Bear in mind, I just made up Gold Week, Podunk, and 1950) You will have to wait for someone else with local knowledge (from where the stamp is from) to fill in the blanks. Generally, they are worth very little (or ess than that!). **IF** there is any market for it, it would most likely be where it was from - even that is a mystery without any indication on the stamp.
Anything is possible, but you shouldn't bet on this being anything of value. Keep looking/digging, though.
Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example. I collect for enjoyment, not investment. APS Member #223433 Postmark Collectors Club Member #6333 Meter Stamp Society Member #1409
It states below" Your golden opportunity to save". I believe it probably is only a one cent or 1 point stamp. The F and S in the black boxes top and bottom suggest that it is a "Food" " Saving" stamp used by many grocers years ago, similar to the points reward system everyone wants you to use these days.
