Stamps (Philately)/LJ Gage stamps

Question
We have 5 L J Gage $1.10 stamps. Unused and still connected to each other. Are they of any value? And if so what would they be worth? Thank you.

Answer
Cyndi,

There are three versions of the $1.10 L J Gage revenue issue.  Two have text overprinted in black, either "Series 1952" or "Series 1953".  Since you did not mention an overprint, I assume your stamps are the 1954 version without overprint, specifically Scott number R668.  In mint condition, the stamps have a catalog (retail) value of $2 apiece.
