    Do I need to protect this one

    Hello, Have read in this area post that American Stamps in general have little value except for larger amounts and a few rare ones. I know next to nothing about this topic but while doing research trying to find a street name that no longer exists I remembered that I had a deed to one of the pieces of property that the city took away from my parents. Found what I was looking for but this stamp was on the deed and would like to know is this just a run of the mill common stamp or do I need to protect it. If you have any idea of a value would you let me know so I can put a note with it for information.

    Thanks Jim

    It looks like this stamp is over printed in black - series 1952.. If it is the 1952 series it should be placed in a show gaurd as the value is 25.00.. The appropriate number is Scott #R600..
    If its series 1953 the value is only 2.50, but still collectable.! I would leave it on the cover either way.
