Recut :April-May 1852 timeframe seems likely.

EKU of 1L is June 5, 1852.

I have a 1E used on May 31; although of course, they could be used later.

So the April postmark would indicate that the year would most likely be 1853.


I agree.

Thanks Dudley and Txstamp!
I am going to try again to add more stamps to my plate recreation.

I negotiated back and forth with a seller on a strip of 3 stamps until I got a price I was willing to pay. A second strip I eventually passed on. I noticed at the last offer that there was a possible crease across the top, maybe to a point that it was a repaired tear at the left part of it. Have to look closely sometimes. I switched it and made an offer on a group of 3 singles that I needed to fill some holes. Awaiting the counter offer.

Here is the strip that I purchased.
It is 26-28L1L. A nice, clean, used copy.

The seller took my offer on the 3 singles. They are 3L1L, 61L1L, and 83L1L. I also picked up another strip of 3 that is 16-18L1L. It will fit right above the last strip on my sheet. That gives me 47/100 on the left pane. I am pushing for the half way mark on my reconstruction.

This one will be much more difficult to plate. It is a #9, relief A, Single cut top and bottom. That would only narrow it down to 72 positions. There does not appear to be a shift, so that would remove 16 more positions, down to 56 positions. Would knock off 2 more positions knowing the stamp above was recut on bottom. That would leave us at 54 positions. I will look at it closer and see what I come up with.

I think its probably 57R1L - note the thick bottom recut from 47R1L at top.

I need a bit more time to get fully happy with this plating but it appears correct.
