A nice example of the upper label re cuts. If you look at the top left side of the label, you see what appears to be, two lines re cut.

Certainly there are enough characteristics to make this stamp easy to plate. I cannot find a match.
I wonder if this stamp has more plate wear than the plating pic example, making this stamps' recuts stand out more?

As always...any help is appreciated.

Stampcrow, Interesting observation. I think I see what you're seeing. To me it looks like a split in the recut line over the period after U. This likely wouldn't be visible on more properly inked specimens from this position.

were these images acquired from a camera? For plating, it would be helpful to have a scanner image with the side lines as vertical as possible.

Those were camera shots. Here's a scan.

Stampcrow,

I'm 99 percent certain the position is 60L1L. Here is your stamp with the StampSmarter image overlaid on it. The left side is a perfect match. The right side doesn't appear to match, but it does match the Chase print on both sides. The StampSmarter stamp may be bent on the right side.

In the StampSmarter image, I think I can barely see through the cancel, the split that your stamp shows in the top label block recut.

Thanks CC.
It's frustrating that there's just enough black cancel to obscure the left side of the top label.
I'll rely on your frame line observations.

I think it was Winston that said Plate 1L is the most interesting.
With the plethora of recuts, re-entries and colors...I have to agree!
