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 suspect that it is a 3 as well.

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!

this appears to be a trimmed stamp and the nicks perforation remains. I believe the date to be 1863.
