Hello. Can anyone help identify if this is a Special Delivery US E13 or E16? I have a full sheet of 50 and was hoping it was the better E13. Any help is appreciated.
Thank you,
Robert

They didn't produce the E13 in anything except plate blocks of four, so this means you have a sheet of E16.

Robert,
If you can't find your gauge can use another stamp with known perfs to compare.

Thanks Don. Did not think of that, but I am sure it will turn up quickly.

How easy is it to look ant a stamp and determine if it is Flat Plate or rotary press. I looked at the glossary terms and understand how the two are printed but don't know if there is an easy way to determine which is which when looking at a stamp.

Thanks again,
Robert

But it would be easier to either do a perf comparison or lookup the plate number.

WOW! Great information everyone. Stampsmarter is a great site. I just need to utilize it more, as long as I know what I am doing. I never knew about the look up by plate numbers.
Thanks again,
RObert
