I have tried but failed in plating this stamp and could use some help.

I am leaning toward Orange Brown but not certain
It is Type II
Top label and UR diamond block are recut
No lines recut in triangles
Frame lines appear recut but not heavily (and are straight)
Have only the Oct 7 with no year on cancel

It's on a cover so can't provide a dark background...sorry

It isn't an orange brown stamp. It is from Plate 2L or 3.

Sinclair2010 - thanks so much for your reply!

I have now been thru all Relief B options on the Stamp Smarter site that had no recuts in the triangles and found only one that was somewhat close, 67R2L, but it's not the one. I am curious what you based your recommended choices of plates 2L & 3?

I specifically looked at the spacing between the frame and inner lines, the interaction of the right inner line and the top right triangle and the spacing of the upper and lower right diamond block and the frame lines and labels.

As far as color goes, my basis for the comment I made is as follows. As always the scan does not reflect what the eye sees. I have looked at it side by side with all my 10's and 11's and my lone 10A that has a cert. Sadly my 10A has a bit too much oxidation to compare well.

I only have a second to respond right now but I just want to make sure you realize that the stamp is an A relief stamp.

No patience required. You did all the work. I checked my Chase reconstruction photos and can go along with your plating. Good job.
