First image is perf 10 all around, Scott 583.

Second image of a stamp in fluid is a different stamp. No need to watermark the definitive issues of 1922-37 era, also known to some collectors as the 4th Bureau Issue.

This one don't fit your perf gauge, the gauge seems printed on a piece of paper, may not be accurate too.

Sorry, you are measuring incorrectly. Start the measure from center of the hole to center of every hole, not the edge. Or use the middle of a perf tip to every other perf tip. So, ignore hole size on the gauge as perf holes vary in size from issue to issue or even for the same issue.

And the standard gauge is in mm; perfs on US stamps are based on inches and do not line up perfectly with a standard gauge. Measure US stamps against other US stamps of the same issue/time period or you can buy a specialist US gauge.

I have no clue as to what perf gauge you are using but as mentioned earlier it is a perf 10. This is where reading the intro in the Scott catalog really helps one understand things. Scott states that the standard measuring is how many perf "teeth" within 2 centimeters. If you take an accurate measuring device you will count 10 perf teeth within 2 centimeters, they also round up I'd imagine if not exact. For US stamps you should get a Kiusalas gauge.
