It's a US stamp of the early 20th century -- common letter rate stamp as far as I know. You might have more luck getting answers if you post it in a US-related area not one that's about GB stamps.

Hi,

Your stamp was first issued in 1922 in a set produced between that year and 1932.

There are some varieties to watch out for, such as the 1929 type II issue or the 1923 19.75 X 22.25mm issue.

Early American stamps can be a minefield and it is best to consult a good stamp catalogue such as SG.

Thank you Alex and Maurice, I have inherited thousands of old stamps, most sealed away for 40 years, I know very little and it's a massive subject
