Does this look like the RU-8e version of this stamp?

I think the paper is called 'granite paper'.

A lot of issues from Switzerland, to name just one other country, used this type of paper a lot.

This paper is called silk paper and they are listed in the revenue section of the Scott Specialized. Granite paper is a different type of paper, although it does have many fibers as well. The fibers in granite paper are much more "squiggly" for lack of a better word and are usually both red and blue. It also has a lot of fibers, many more than silk paper, which only has blue fibers which usually appear as they do here in this typical example.

Hardly. Can't spend 50+ years collecting stamps without learning something. Actually the more I learn the more I realize that I don't know.

Actually, we keep on learning. I will never know all there is to know about philately.

The day we stop learning is the day we die.

This is not the experimental silk paper, it is the regular silk paper. Experimental silk paper only has a very few threads and they are all short and straight.
This paper was used for some years at the very end of the Joseph Carpenter contract (Butler had died so it was no longer Butler & Carpenter), during the ABNCO contract, and for a very brief time at the beginning of the BEP printings (depending on exactly which stamps were being printed at that moment).
