Are you actually looking for the combination of the stamp and the postmark online? If so, you're wasting your time. This is a very common stamp with a common postmark. There's really nothing to be baffled by or to search for.

Miss Italy, are you trying to find where this particular stamp is being offered for sale in order to get a value? If so, be aware that not all stamps are offered for sale. When I search for "netherlands stamp 6 cents gray" I get several hits on that particular stamp, but nothing for sale. As others have said, this is a common stamp with (likely) a common postmark, and therefore has little value. As Rod showed, this stamp is Scott #342 issued circa 1953 (my catalog shows 1954). It's value in my 2012 catalog is 20 cents, the absolute minimum, which means it is literally worth just a few pennies.

If you search eBay "Netherlands numerals"

Your stamp pops up first and again

Miss Italy21,

The 6 cent stamp in this design by Jan van Krimpen was first issued in 1954. It has little value because it is extremely common. The main Dutch catalogue (NVPH speciale catalogus) lists it as number 466. Petert4522 provided a link to a thread about the series. This shows the stamp. Also rod222 posted the series including the 6 cent value.

The cancellation is a so-called 'station cancel' (stationsstempel). The AMSTERDAM C.S. - until mid-1961 AMSTERDAM CENTRAAL STATION station cancel was applied at the station post office (stationspostkantoor) located next to the Amsterdam Central (Main) Station. Note: it was not a post office in the train station. Amsterdam Centraal Station is located at the edge of the historic city centre of Amsterdam.

Station post offices are located near a station and have a loading platform as the post office (PTT) sorted mail for carriage on trains at those locations. Normally, these station post offices have a sorting centre. From these post offices sorted mail was loaded onto mail trains. The building was demolished long ago.

As far as rarity: you are talking about the biggest station post office in the biggest Dutch city that had a sorting office. It will not be rare.

Since it says "Nederland" (Netherlands), and not "United States" or "USA" you can be certain it's a foreign stamp.

I beg to differ, sir.

P.S.,

You might want to change 'neverland' in the title of the thread to 'Nederland' so people searching for the countryname that appears on the stamp come across this post.

My first thought was that the thread was about an Elvis Presley stamp. Of course, I should have had a second thought that it was about a Michael Jackson stamp.

Miss Italy21, good suggestion by NSK, but it is probably too late for an edit. However, you can "send a note to staff" and they will edit the name for you

Neverland is much more entertaining, for those of us who enjoyed Peter Pan as children.

The Neverland in the title is why I initially responded with "try the Netherlands". I was not being facetious but thought that the OP did not realize the Country name.

Amazing! It is still incorrect; the country is The NetherlandS, or Nederland in Dutch

The Netherlands, the Netherlands or Netherlands. Until some kind of agreement can be made I think Don made the right choice. After extensive research I can come to no consensus. However, I am Dutch,Holland,Netherlands,The and the ignorant.

The reason I suggested 'Nederland' and am using 'Nederland - Netherlands' in my thread titles is that someone who cannot place 'nederland' on a stamp is unlikely to search for 'Netherlands.'

It looks like OP either did not know what 'nederland' is or mis-typed what OP read on the stamp.

If you want to know where a stamp that reads 'SHQIPRIA' is from, you are unlikely to search for 'albania.' I have no idea how to solve this if you are looking at a Greek stamp.
