14¢ American Indian
(read how to identify your stamp below)
You have the 14¢ American Indian (and my favourite US stamp) from the years 1923-30. It is a somewhat common stamp and is worth no more than a dollar if used.
To determine the difference the two varieties of the 14¢ American Indian one needs to look at the perforations. You will need a copy of the very common 1932 3¢ Washington (#720). A picture of which is shown below. Follow the instructions below
There is another way of determining the difference between #565 and #695, that is to look at the type of printing. #695 was printed using the Rotary Press Printing which makes the stamp wider and longer than #565 which was printed using the Flat Plate Printing method. An illustration of the degree of difference between the two printings is shown below;
