The bottom stamp appears to be a 1912'ish (1912-1914) one cent Washington (green) also with 12 perforations - Approximate value $0.25 cancelled, or
$9.50 mint. (yours is cancelled)
Both stamps are sheet stamps (as opposed to coil stamps). Coil stamp values would be about 2x the numbers above.
I have just about every US stamp minted back to about 1851, all mint. Mom was a big time stamp collector, and I was too for a while. The sticker
type stamps pretty much killed the stamp collecting hobby. The 'forever' stamps were the wooden stake through the heart of the hobby. Stamp values
have fallen pretty much ever since due to lack of interest. Our stamp collection was worth close to $750k (maybe more) in the early '90's, now it's
probably half that or less.
Got any others you'd like to know values on?
That was kind of fun.
