Question
i have a colubus in sight of land stamp is it worth anything? im new to this

Answer
Hi Stephen,
From your description, you could have one of 2 stamps. It is either Scott Cat# 230 (has 1892 at upper right) or Scott# 2624a (has 1992 at upper right). Unfortunately both are fairly common used and have a catalog value of 40c & 25c respectively in used condition. The #230 has a list value of $14 in very fine mint condition (retail is usually less) but the #2624a still only lists at 25c mint. Hope this helps.
Thanks again for the question,
Mike
