(read how to identify your stamp below)

This is the 30¢ Franklin. It is quite common and usually worth no more than a couple of dollars when used, however it can have reasonable value when unused. As there are only three variations of this stamp, identification is by counting the perforations at the edge of the stamp and is relatively easy.


Count the perforations along the bottom, its as simple as that! Below is a chart indicating the perforations of each Stamps Catalog #.
