Here is a Type IV with right inner line recut - position 24L10E. I sold it on eBay about 4 years ago and have missed it ever since!

Very nice! Sharp detail. Are there recut lines in the upper left triangle?

Caper, Yes, those are a couple from the famous "three rows" of Plate 3.

3193, No recutting in the triangle on that stamp.

Here is one I have with a faint inner line on the lower left side. I have classified as a #26, Type III, but now noticed that inner line.




It may be in other places along the side, but I need to get home to scan in a higher resolution to be sure. What is it? A recut of some sort?

Thanks,

Ken

So having a look at my #11,#11a's I came across this?
3 vertical lines on left?
I'm a novice at this so please bear with me!


And a bit closer...

This is an 11A from the 3-rows of plate 3. See a mention of it above in this thread.
It's some excessive and interesting recutting to say the least.
Quite collectable, but also common, so not much, if any significant premium for it.

Thanks TXStamp, it's not about the value really it's about the stamp and it's beauty, and variations on the beauty!
Cheers

And I also found this? I thought it was double transfer at bottom, could it be a re cut?


And close up...

Ken, That is not an inner line but you are right about the stamp being a Type III, Scott #26. The stamp is from the bottom row of the plate and that little short piece of line is very common in the lower left corner of bottom row 26's. We call it a "relief line" and it actually comes directly from the transfer roll. These faint relief lines show why it was necessary to manually strengthen the frame lines after the plates were made. Here is a bottom row pair from Plate 9 that shows a relief line on the right stamp.

Hi Winston - thanks for the explanation. Now that you said it, I think I may have come across a discussion somewhere in the past day regarding the relief lines and the issues surrounding. I just did not correctly connect the context. (I have been reading a lot on the issues - a lot to absorb....)

Thanks much,

Ken
