Thank you very much for your time gentlemen.
I'll guage my stamps tomorrow,
Genuine guaged at 11.5
Reprints guaged at 11.8
Frustratingly, Mr. Hahn has outlined the "G with crossbar" and failed to say if it was genuine or forged.
From Perf12, (appreciate the link) I am assuming mine are genuine, albeit the rays are thicker in design.
