rogdcam, I have been enjoying your posts very much!

I saw your Scott 9X1, Postmaster's Provisional. My wish is to own a 10x1 someday.

Rogdcam, many lovelies, but that 232 is gorgeous. I feel as though it should be a poster or something....

Here is a 1919 offset US 536 which I just added. Fairly common it would seem in unused or mint condition.

Am I correct that this is the only US stamp with the 12.5 perforation? I have read in another Forum thread that in addition to the 536, two Revenue stamps had this perforation for part of their production run. But for regular and commemorative issues, this 536 was the only one to be 12.5 right?

Jleb - That is a stunning 536! That Scott number is the only Wash-Frank perforated 12.5. It was perforated using the Rosback rotary perforating machine and the perforations were the smallest since the 1857 issue. I do not know about the revenue issues. Some recent issues come close to 12.5. The Trans-Mississippi Centennial sheet of 1998 is gauged at approximately 12.2 x 12.4. I will be interested in seeing what other more knowledgeable folks here have to say.

That 536 has unusually excellent centering! Here is a blotter card advertising the Rosback perforator. The APS has one of these machines, although it might be a different model.



The blotter is slightly larger than 3.25 x 5.5"

Yet another 536 it seems large margins were reasonably common for this stamp.

This looks a bit like the kicking mule cancel but it's reversed

Any ideas?

A Scott 1a

There is a tiny inclusion in the back side which is not visible in the front.
