Douglas - I remember that 100L2 cover. I seriously considered bidding on it. Terrific item. Congrats.

sarcasm on
I'm happy to see that you are leaving all of the inner, body-of-plate stamps for the rest of us.
sarcasm off

You have a really nice collection of marginal copies - imprints, etc. Very nice to see them.

lukusw - working on plate 2 of this stamp is a noble pursuit.

One piece of advice - In the event that it proves to be really hard, don't get discouraged. Any piece(s) of information that you can add to what is already known here, will be an advancement of the state of the art on this plate. Write it up here and/or in The Chronicle, and you will have definitely made a contribution.

If, on the other hand, you actually reconstruct the plate, and come up with some effective ways to plate these stamps, then ..

"Douglas - I remember that 100L2 cover. I seriously considered bidding on it. Terrific item. Congrats."

And incredibly the auction house description included the suggestion that it be soaked off the cover!

Here are a couple from the inner body of the plate:

Thanks. All an outgrowth of my Dad getting me started on collecting common post WW2 plate number blocks when I was 9 years old, and my discovering plate number singles a couple years later, with my first being the low value 1908 set.

Here are two more:

Thanks for all the images and encouragement. Douglas--those pieces are amazing! I particularly love the 100L2 on piece with selvage. The #35 on cover with the #30A imprint is 80L2 (D relief and there is a dash through the left lower shell).

I hope to upload a couple more that I have plated soon. Keep the images coming!

Thanks.

The 100L2 is not on piece but is actually a full cover.

Here are a few more successfully plated:

10L confirmed Relief A due to the guide dot in the top left perf. I was quite excited and satisfied to notice that little speck of green.


51L Normally identified by imprint on the left, but the margin is too short for it to show here. Instead, the two guide dots at the bottom, combined with the dot/smudge in 'N' of "TEN" identify the position.

Douglas -- your first two "body of the plate" stamps above are wonderful specimens. The first is B Relief, not sure of the position. The second is A Relief, and I am fairly confident that it is 3L due to the guide dot position in the upper right and the faint presence of dot(s) along the left edge of the design:
