I believe this stamp has one line recut in both lower triangles.
This is found in only two plate positions. 32R3 and 95R3 according to the USPCS site.

My stamp wants to be 32R3. I can't say for certain, it's a match for the images available to me online.
Plate 3 was used to print a lot of stamps, so maybe I'm seeing differences *edit* - due to plate wear.

Any thoughts?

I'm sorry, it must seem like I'm trying to bump my own post.
But this is the second time I've reread this and for the second time, can see I need to edit my dialogue.

It should read, "I can't say for certain that it's a match for any of the images available to me online".
That's why I'm asking for help.
Sorry.

Stampcrow - After comparing it to the ones shown on the Stampsmarter site I'd say it is 32R3. Though the top left diamond block looks considerably different that could be an inking issue. Everything else somewhat unique to the 32R3 checks out against yours!

Caper, my thoughts also.
My fear is, since it doesn't match completely, I'm missing something obvious that would eliminate that position like..., that's not a recut line in the lower right triangle.

I understand Stampcrow. Still there are quite a few positions that have either not been plated or have no photo in Stampsmarter. There are sooo many tiny similarities that I think unless proved otherwise you have a match!

So, this used to be a Pair of Scott #9's

Winston, I did see ttreens post about the Chase Plates being available online.
That is obviously news to me.

I can't promise I wont make other annoying inane posts.
