This one is causing me problems. I'm getting Relief A-B-A. Unfortunately, the right edge, including any B relief plating dot, is cut off. I don't know if the bruising is hiding plating marks or I just don't see what I need to.... Based on the length of reengraved lines, 40R-50R-60R is a maybe, but I just can't convince myself.

middle stamp is definite B relief.. must come from rows 3, 5, or 7 (cannot be 9th row, since there appears to be another row of stamps under bottom stamp). Due to quality of scan, I also went solely by length of re-engraved/cut lines. I believe you are correct in 40R-50R-60R.

There do appear to be horizontal plate scratches above your bottom stamp ornaments w,x,y,z consistent with 60R1L.

Not that easy.

Thanks for the input, RGSTAMP. If only the right border had not been cut off and we could see the full designs (including whether there was no guide dot present for that middle B relief--confirming it was a 10th row stamp). Of course, if it had been full margins, I wouldn't have been able to win it for $30 on eBay

Difficult scan - one quick estimate: 55-65-75L1L.

Middle stamp has numerous points that resemble 65L.

Bottom stamp top recut doesn't seem to match 75L exactly, but that could just be the bad scan .. hard to be sure.

Reliefs certainly are A-B-A.

I think I've got it! More looking and a better quality scan provided the solution: 15L-25L-35L




Shows split top of B Relief--25L


Shows double transfer in letters of B Relief--25L


Shows split top of A Relief--35L
