7¢ Stanton
(read how to identify your stamp below)


You have the 7¢ Stanton from the years 1871-1875. It is fairly uncommon. To value the stamp you have to first look for a what is called a 'Secret Mark' and look for an embossed pattern, called a grill (an example is shown below), on the reverse of the stamp.
