I'd say so. The cv difference between the R37a, b & c is considerable.

But interestingly, the blue dot on the lower left margin seems to show up in all of the R37 variants. I have a b & c both with that little blue dot.

'Fresh'? The stamp, at least in this image, looks like it has been cleaned.

It's a dry print. It's also the wrong shade, even on a computer screen. Since Imperfs, part perfs, and perforated stamps were all printed from the same plate, the same position would show the same characteristics.

Get a writing stick and a piece of paper.

Write an "8" in a way that results in a tail coming up and to the right like the scan.

Now repeat as a "3" instead.

I believe it is a "3" - not an "8".

I'm just curious if you all would humor me and provide your 3's and 8's.
Here's mine.

Moyock13,

Compare the left edge of the numeral in the canx. There are 3 distinct "bumps".

Using your exemplars, a "3" has three left bumps, and an "8" has two.

I have horrible handwriting - my "8" is simply two Os; one on top of the other.

I went through my calendar collection to review manuscript 63s and 68s. I will scan a couple hopefully later tonight.

Sorry, but I have a salmon fillet, 4 chicken quarters, 10 chicken thighs, and a dish of onion and asparagus about done in the smoker.

At the moment, stamps take second place to smoked meat!
