I'm based in the uk and recently inherited a small collection. Could it be possible that I have a rare gw stamp?


Thanks in advance,

MJ

The "rarest" this perf 10 coil could be is Scott 456 which has a catalog value of $170 used if centered VF. A scan of the back would be helpful to look for setoff.

setoff is immaterial on this one, it will not have one, what you need is a watermark for the scarce one

A watermark will not indicate a valuable stamp. You should check for one but what you really need to do is go to the Stamp Smarter link given above and do some research first. Go to Stamp Smarter.

Thanks, will do. Once I received this book of world stamps I thought it would be interesting to see if a little gem was hiding in amongst the rough. I appreciate any info from all on this site as I've had little help or interest here in the UK
