Hi All
Hoping you can enlighten me. Bought a framed postcard from early 1900's took it out and turned it over and saw this Ben Franklin stamp and postmark from 1909. Any help knowing if the stamp would be of value would be great. Really cool forum here and thanks in advance for the help

This stamp is Scott 300, from 1901, which is very common. The 1c and 2c stamps from this series were considered "workhorse" stamps, since they were common at that time period to use on postcards and letter envelopes. Best thing is to keep the stamp affixed, as the postcard is most likely the main value here.
