So I've inherited 3 stamp collections in my life and I just broke my foot and thought id catalouge them, see if there was any value, find good homes for them etc and may have stumbled across a gem or just as likely i've misidentified it

Scott 473 is an 11 cent stamp. Try again?

Edit to add: the original poster had a catalog # of 473 in the title, which has since been changed/deleted. I took this as a "Scott" number. Apparently is was a Stampworld number, which means nothing to me, so I'll stop and advise Don's link to stampsmarter as a much better starting place.

You use a perforation gauge. You can download a paper one here https://stampsmarter.org/learning/F...rfGauge.html until you can purchase a better quality one.

There is also a 'How To' video on how to use a perf gauge on this page
