I put the black mark in the middle through photoshop to hide the seller's name in case he didn't want his name out there.

Yes 1909,I found a reference to a Lake color 332 in Scott's as a 332b but no information or pricing,there is 1 used one on Seigel's website,that's the only thing I can find.

The 375b Lake is from 1910 and the 2nd revised Washington design so it's not that one.

Huffy. I was referring to the black mark through the name. You are trying to protect the ID of a person that is 108 years old?
But anyway, I notice a strange line through the stamp where the color is different on both sides. What is that?

I'm guessing you will need certification to ensure that is a true lake color and not some sort of color changeling.

Huffy, 332 and 375 are of the same design. Difference is type of watermark.

Earliest recorded use of the 1910 #375 is in 1910 so if this cover is not faked, its not a #375.

Correct but this is a 1909 cover,375's were not around until late 1910 so the only option is a 332 or 332b if this is really Lake color.
