Here is one that was even easier to plate. A bit of the imprint helps a lot.




31L4

Yes, I don't think I need to look that up. Nice stamp.
Plate 4 imprints are tough to find, especially imperforate.

9-19L4 Type II and Type III combination pair.




The 9L4 has a tear but the 19L4 is sound.




Aside from the bruise and the dot shown in Neinken, there is a faint guideline in L and M.

Yeah, I was wondering how that bottom stamp would turn out. Pretty much what I figured... I was the one on your heels. The bottom break must be pretty much right on the edge of being large enough?

In the eye of the beholder I guess.






Couple of dots and dashes.

My secret friend thought that since it is shown as type III in Neinken, it would probably get a cert as a 21, but I do not generally seek certs unless I was to sell something.

Funny that it was offered as a #20 pair cat $625.

Nice pair.

That 19L4 is indeed a close call.
It might depend on who sees it at the PF as well.

Very close to a IC.

In Neinken, it looks like its the left ball that is slightly incomplete. Not visible on yours, so have to assume same, aka IIIA.

Nice.

There is also a really good mark under the N of "ONE".

Yes, but I did not see that mark on other copies of 29R4.

You can see it on other, but surely not all, copies of 29R4 without using too much imagination. It shows quite well on the lead specimen on the Doporto site.
