I thought I'd reply here, on behalf of another thread, where pos 95R1L was posted. Reference thread:
http://goscf.com/t/72775&whichpage=88#667527

Here is a reference 95R1L, which is a clear match to the stamp posted (not my stamp, just for reference):


The horizontal spacing and vertical alignment to the stamp at left, really only matches 95R1E/L and is close to 93L2 but not a match.

There are several vertical blurs at right on the submitted stamp and the comparison copy, which match. There is also a small dot right of ornament P, on the reference copy, which seems faint but maybe visible on the submitted stamp (Laurie's).

The blurs only appear on 95R1L, and not 1E. Also, the re-entry of 1L appears to have strengthened some of the left side ornaments overall above the 1E variety, which makes the submitted stamp by Laurie_02 pretty clearly position 95R1L for sure.

It is Ty IV, Scott #9.

Nice pair Stallzer! Yours shows the cracks well too. I have one on cover but the cracks are not as well defined.

Very nice item.

A study of the evolution of the cracks on Plate 1L would be an interesting project.

I once had a 58R1L, perforated, #23, so very late impression, that showed the cracks on that position about as strong as I'd seen them. Pretty striking item.

So many of these crack positions usually either don't show the cracks, or show them very poorly defined. When you find one with a strong crack definition, its definitely a good find.

Stallzer, here's my 41R1L. Actually, the crack lines do show up better than I remembered.

This cover is franked with a pair of #9 Ty IV, pos 95-96L1L, and a strip of 4 10c Ty II #14, pos 37-40R1, including part imprint capture on 40R.

This is paying the 42c Prussian Closed Mail rate to Sweden.

The right most 10c stamp was originally folded over to the back of the cover. The cover was cut and the stamp folded out for display.

Sweden is a scarce destination during this time period. I have only found 20 1851-issue stamped covers to Sweden so far in my looking.

Also, 10c stamps with an imprint capture are very tough items to find.

Both 1c stamp positions show rust marks.

Here is a cropped rotated image of the 95-96L1L.
Both of these positions show a split-top recut.

The rust marks at the bottom center of 96L1L do show plainly though.

Sorry for the poor quality scan.

I'm not sure why, but Ashbrook described the surface crack on 61R as "an extremely nice variety". The crack shows up quite clearly in the example below.

It is a nice variety. Real cracks like this, that show well are very collectable items.

Your stamp shows it quite well.

Nice carrier cancel to go with it !

Too bad about the margins though.
