Question
I found a 6 cent stamp with a picture of the white house and american flag on it. Stamp never used. It was inside of an old jewelry box. Wondering if it has any value and if any value how much.

Answer
Reba,

Its a common definitive stamp issued 1968 to 1970 that was produced in both sheet and coil formats.  Depending on the condition of the gum and overall appearance, it is worth between face value (as postage) and 25 cents.
