As you can see from this link, a number of stamps along the cut lines were available, so mathematically they are less common than fully perforated stamps from the same panes. But in terms of value, they are worth less than a fully perforated stamps (silly eBay sellers aside). The reason is demand, most collector prefer fully perforated stamp instead of a 'straight edge' stamp.

There are a few (very few) collectors who seek out straight edges and reassemble them like this...

And years ago some dealers would sell them as this ad shows...

Since very few folks collect 'straight edges' today this is a great specialty for someone get into, stamp are available at very good prices. Plus, you do not end up with 'just another US collection' but rather something that is far more interesting and less common.

re: Franklin 12 cent stamp

Don did a great job of highlighting the stamp, how it came to be, and what a collector might do with it.

He is right that it is a far rarer, and far less desired, stamp than most. In a pane of 100, there will be 20 stamps with guidelines and 40 total with straight lines, vs 60 with pefs on 4 sides. Still, while rarer, less folks like them. go figure.

I always choose a stamp that has information on its previous life in a litter of stamps.
