This is a U.S. Express Mail instruction marking, which was applied to mailed items, probably from the 1850s or so. This marking would be applied to an envelope or stamp. As for collectability, it is best for the marking to remain on the mailed item, instead of being cut-out.

Here is a page I did for a client for a cover with that marking.
