it reads " universal postal union 1874 - 1974 " on bottom too.

Answer
Hi, Joe,

Your stamp is one of a strip of 8 different stamps issued to celebrate an anniversary of the Universal Postal Union.  Suggested market value is 20-cents, which is a minimum handling value and indicates that if your stamp is unused it has full face value if used on mail and if used has negligible value.  This is unfortunately true of most stamps issued in the mid and late 20th century.
