Hello Mr. Leon,

I greatly value and appreciate your detailed responses.

Ive got a descent count of green franklins such as the page attached. I am in search of # 594. How would should I handle this?

Many thanks,

Leslie,

I, too, am searching for the elusive Scott 594.  It's best to start by researching what genuine 594's look like.  Here's a link to a stamp auctioneer's website search tool.  Type 594 in the blank space next to "Catalogue #" and click the green "Search" button.  The result should show you pictures of 594's sold over the last several years:
