Position 91L4, Scott #19, Type Ia. Without getting another mortgage on the house, I decided that this is about the nicest #19 that I could afford. The centering is much better than many I've looked at, and the 1981 PF cert mentions only a light right lower corner crease. I'm not sure why the short perfs on the bottom weren't mentioned, but I guess small faults were just more accepted back then.

I would be prepared for the PF to be FAR less generous the next time around.

Here is a fun (and rare) item that just came in today. Position 81-83R4, Type 1c-1c-III, Scott #19b-19b-21. Position 81 has the curl on shoulder.

sinclair2010 - That is an interesting (and rare) strip, and it's a great position piece to own.

As for my #19 - I know the bottom perfs are pretty bad, but this is a stamp that I judge on a relative scale, and I didn't think it was THAT bad. So many of these have so much of the plumes cut off that you can hardly recognize them as #19's. I'm still debating, though, whether I want to keep it.

Widglo46, I sent you an email but just so you and everyone else realizes, I wasn't trying to disparage your stamp or make any attempt at quantifying how good or bad the stamp is.

A #19 with the full design mostly showing is a scarce item, and certainly worth having. Usually the design is cut into by the perforations.

The strip of 3 is a nice printing. It would have been interesting to see what the bottom(s) of the designs looked like on this printing.
