Could someone ID these for me please. I cannot find in my 2011 Scott's Specialty--

I think the Playing Card is Style RF2 #RF9x. Could someone fill in the 'x'.

Don't have a clue on the 'Cigar' or 'Cigarettes.'

I need call upon the knowledge base of people waaay smarter than I. I really appreciate your help. Nice folks here!

On the playing cards stamp, there are two varieties: RF2 is the Ultramarine variety; whereas RF2a color is Blue.

Monitors can reproduce colors quite differently, but this comparison may help (taken from Eric Jackson website):

Yes, it is the RF2 Ultramarine.
It is the "precancel" that has me buffaloed.

Also, thanks for the other reference on the tobacco products!

Just for fun, here's a 1959 newspaper article on the Cigarette Stamp featuring the image of Dewitt Clinton and arguing that his image has appeared on 500 BILLION stamps, more stamps than any other person (at least at the time the article was published in 1959):

It probably was second, even then. George Washington has him beat in US stamps, especially if revenues are included. Even without them, how many 26,301,332,375,406,425,499,etc. the list goes on and on. Now it's Elizabeth of course.
