Here is one that was easily narrowed down to two positions. However, these two positions are nearly identical. The stamp is relief A, double recut top and double recut (EC) bottom. The only two positions that match those requirements are 52L1L and 79L1L. Then I noticed the guide dot from the stamp above (42L1L or 69L1L). Looking at these two stamps, it became obvious that the stamp is position 79L1L.

I agree, 79L1L.
The top inner line recut on 79L does not completely cover the P in POSTAGE, whereas on 52L it does.
I agree that the 69L1L guide dot is a give-away.
I had several copies of that position, and its a big dot.
69L1E also shows the big dot.

This stamp is relief A, single recut top and double recut (EC) bottom. Indication of stamp on right eliminates column 10. The only two positions that match those requirements are 53L1L and 72R1L. Looking at position 72R1L, the EC recut at bottom seems to dip low and give more of an angled impression. Position 53L1L has an EC recut that matches better. On 53L1L there are two plating marks between Orns A and B that seem to match the examples shown on Doporto's site (image 2). I would consider this one as a good match for 53L1L.

This stamp is a relief T or relief B. The heavy cancellation makes a quick relief ID difficult. I am leaning toward relief T. Stamp to right eliminates column 10. It is single recut top and double EC recut at bottom. This narrows it down to 16 positions. As I notice the stamp to the right is lower, this eliminates 2nd and 7th column on left pane and 4th, 6th, and 8th columns on right pane. This drops it to 12 positions. As I start checking for plating marks, it becomes evident that the first position that I checked is a match, 6L1L.

Agreed, 6L1L. The degree of incompleteness of Ornament U and completeness of Ornament Z together point right away to Relief T.

Dudley. Do you also agree with the 53L1L?

The 6L1L was a good example to show how to narrow down choices.

53L1L looks correct to me.
I see the dots between ornament A & B.
The EC recut on 72R is more jagged, and does not appear to match.

I agree with 53L1L. The bottom recut does not look like 72R1L.
