Hello,

I have spent quite some time in identifiying this one, but I struggle with:

- perforation at left looks strange to me?
- grill seems to be E grill, has 18 point in height (as I can see), can an E grill have 18 point?

Hi stamperix,
Wow on those perfs, yes it is a horrid reperf job. As for the grill, can you scan the back with the stamp flat?

This stamp is crying out for a good bath!

How would I make a good bath for such a stamp? Normally I just use water for some minutes to remove the hinge, but it isn't cleaned then.

I made a scan - but for me the oblique look shows more grill points.

A bath using clean, fresh water.

It appears to be an E grill to me.

Ok I hope it will clean somehow (will do the next days).
Yes, E grill should be the normal thought. But there are grill point (weak) below the last obvious line at the bottom, one or two lines.

Stamper- easy to use this rule for 99% of the grills from the 1861-8 issue:
Column count = 14, E grill
Column count = less than 14, F grill
Column count = 15, D grill

much easier than counting rows, which you really don't need, unless it's a Z grill.

Good luck, hope this is helpful. Yours is an E grill...agree with Don here..

thank you Ray, I was too much focussed on the rows, indeed. So I have a 90 with wrong perforation - nice! :)
