stallzer - difficult stamp to plate, made more so by the blue colored cancel. Give 47L a look also as well as the top of 57L which looks a lot like the top of the stamp below in your scan.

Since I'm thinking about the sale of Dick Celler's remainder material at Rumsey this past week, I thought I'd post Dick's former 99R2, Scott #8 that I obtained last year.

99R2 is a Ty III, with top and bottom lines cleanly broken, with the massive right side double transfer.

Posting a couple more of Dick Celler's stamps that I obtained last year.

Position 100R2 is a really interesting plate position. It is a bottom-row (misplaced) A relief.

We had a discussion on it here, previously -
http://goscf.com/t/58151#508483

Here are two copies of it that Dick had. Note the 11th row effect, where you can see the top of the B relief in the bottom margin, from the over-rocking of the transfer roll. It is very visible on the pen-cancelled stamp. The stamp with the New York CDS, is ex-Wagshal, and was lot 940 in his Siegel sale 994.

This one has all the markings for 60L2 but I could not find anything to match the marks in the two "S"s in "US POSTAGE". I even checked plates one and three. Any ideas"

jaxom100 - I looks to me that your stamp is lower than the one to its left. If so, it can't be from the left pane of plate 2.

Sometimes you find extraneous ink marks that look like consistent plating marks but in fact are not.

jaxom100 - On closer look, I can't really say your stamp in lower than the one to its left. The little bit of ink that I see could be even with the ornament on your stamp. The diagram in Neinken's book shows column 10 higher than column 9 on plate 2, but his diagram exaggerates exactly how much higher. I think 20L2 may be a match. Yours shares the same plate marks in the RLC ast Doporto's, and the incompleteness of ornament "H" is also the same as 20L2.

I agree with Dudley and with 60L2. The marks opposite Franklin's nose are perfectly consistent with a reference scan that I have for 60L2 and it matches my copy in other respects.
