Question
Small box with cancelled stamp
Small box with cancell  
I found this small box while shopping can you tell me anything about, for instance possible date of use in the U.S., rarity if any, it has a cancelled 3 cent Lincoln stamp it measures 3 1/8" X 2 1/8" X  3/4".

Answer
Hi Sharon,

 This is a common US stamp from the 1920s-30s period, worth very little. But it is a nice usage on a box rather than an envelope and would probably be of interest to a collector of 3rd-4th class usages, such as this. But finding such a specialized collector would be like looking for a needle in a haystack.  But you COULD go to www.virtualstampclub.com and post a message & image there and ask for advice.  Mine is to not waste much time on this, as even if you did find an interested collector, the value would be under $10.
