Stamps (Philately)/1923 harding stamp


I have a used 1923 Harding 2c stamp and it guages perforation 11 not 10 but 11 would it be the unique stamp that is of value?

Most Harding stamps are a perf 11, it is a Flat Plate Printing and is value at a couple of dollars at a post office fresh unused stamp. The rare perf 11 Harding stamp is a Rotary Press Printing perf 10 and were produced from rotary press sheet waste- very rare and worth thousands. I have never seen one, and without seeing it to examined it I am not positive as to what you really have. This is the reason why many people collect stamps, to try and find that treasure. Keep collecting and have a safe holiday season.
