    I can't seem to find anything on A George Washington 3 cents blue stamp. I'm new to this forgive my ignorance. Could someone point me in the right direction

    Welcome! It appears to be what is called a 'color-changling.' Not uncommon for purple/violet stamps. The reds fade when exposed to sunlight leaving the blue.

    Others may check in with perhaps different ideas.

    I hope you enjoy StampExchange and continue to share with us. We're a rather eclectic group and have quite a few experts I call the Brain Trust.' (Alas, I am not one of them.)
