Looks like the upper right is the best—-assuming backs all equivalent

Rg, The stamp that I posted is definitely a 46L12. The PF has certified something like 5 or 6 Type III, 46L12's. I am pretty sure my stamp, which is a very late impression, would get certed as a Type III.

Winston,

I assume Neinken was wrong then in his assessment of position 46L12. Should I update my book that it is swing position IIIa/III depending on wear of upper outer line in later impressions. Or is the position now always considered by experts a type III (scott 21)? I had no idea that plate 12 even had a type III position (46L12) at all. Thanks for bringing this up and showing this rare stamp.

A similar scenario (sister) position would be 100R1E type IIIa (imperf version!) as it generally has nice break in bottom line, but for this stamp Neinken points out that there may be rare late impressions with worn out top line making it a type III, although not sure if one has ever been certified.

interesting stuff. I guess more to look out for when looking for a needle in a haystack.

Here is another impulse buy from an eBay auction with no bids. I'm currently working on the British commonwealth KGVI sets and KUT is one set I'm missing. So I placed a bid for £2 and won it for £1.83, shipping & VAT was £2.27. So I got 2 marginal blocks of 15, all unmounted mint of SG 183 which cat for £4.75 each X 30 = £142.50 of catalog value for under £5.

Not Purchased, but gifted - and I mean gifted! It will take a lifetime for me to go through all of the stamps - but I am so excited to do it, and also to work on them with my boys. Here are some of the unheard of amount of Mexican stamps. Looking for any sites that might help me with these. Oh I am a newbie. Thanks.

Found my "needle in the haystack". I've had the Recut Bust position off cover since I first started collecting the 3cent stamp. Was hoping to someday find one on cover. Happy!!

rgstamp - 46L12 is a IIIA-III swing position.

More have been found since the Neinken book. Three alone, have been found and announced in the past couple years via this forum.

There are some weird looking stamps in general, on Plate 12, such as 46L.

Siegel Sale 1006, Lots 1514 - 1522 (46-56L12), and then also 1523 - 1525, illustrates some of the strange stamps one can encounter on Plate 12. That is in addition to quite a few double transfers and such.

Yes I'm one of the QV initial collectors and I can't pass up one with a decent MX cancel.

Still plugging away at the Pan-Pacs; this is the perf 10 403. I did not have a placeholder for any of the perf 10s, so I compare this one to the old used 399 I have. This one is quite fresh in appearance such that the sunset through the pre-bridge Golden Gate is luminous. No such effect with my cancelled 399.

I too hope Rogdcam will soon post another of his inspiring gems....

Here is a Scott 533 pair, among the imperforate offsets of 1919-20, now hitting one hundred years old. This pair came with an old (1979) APS cert and I then had a good time with my loupe going over it closely, covering the bases to my satisfaction. My personal inspection was made pleasant by the well organized Washington Franklin identifier section of Stamp Smarter. It is a real help, clearer to me than Scott Specialized. Thanks giving to Don!
