There is probably offset on the back as well.

- Posted 6/13

I thought that your original items were going out the week of 5/28. When are you going to send these in? We'd love to help celebrate your historic finds. Please keep us informed.

Certainly a better date than 5/28 or 4/1.

Sending the pictured Scott 610 examples to be certified as Scott 613 is an avoidable expense, perhaps better spent on basic reference books about US Stamps. Information about rotary press and flat plate printing and perforations is readily available on the Internet. All it takes is a willingness to spend a few minutes to learn before before posting.

stuckonstamps,

If you have a relative or friend who knows how to post a picture maybe you could send a smartphone photo through text messaging. It's real easy, only one step extra if you have ever texted anyone.

Pictures go a long way and most of us would be thrilled to have a member find and share some truly rare stamps. We all enjoy the hunt and sharing the finds online.

--Jim

This is exactly what previous posters have described as the problem with trying to measure fractions of a mm (the flat plate is 19.25 x 22.25 millimeters. The rotary plate is 19.25 x 22.50 millimeters) with a ruler:

Look at the ruler at the bottom of the stamp. See how the bar is not parallel with the stamp?

Look at the top of the stamp. See how the ruler extends just a little bit more than the stamp?

Yep, those are tiny mistakes. But they add up to the difference between a lat plate and rotary plate stamp.

Try laying a straight edge paper along the top border of the stamp and place your ruler up to and touching it on the center of the 10mm line and measure toward the 32+mm point. It will be truer than hoping the end of the ruler is true.

ps - a micrometer is best

It is the angle of the picture. I have measured the design with dial calipers and I come up with22.5 or a tad bit under 22.5. I most definitely would not post something I was not sure of.

Or if you could take a picture of the back of the stamp that would help.

Enough of the speculation trolling. Send the stamps in for a cert and post when you get the cert back.

Find a 610 side plate block of 6 and compare the height over three stamps. There is no substitute for comparison with stamps that have a known identity. Believing that the height or width of a stamp can be effectively measured could lead to costly errors. Always compare with a reference first. It will save time and money.

If a stamp is kept in a photo album for around 8 years what damage to the gumming on a mint never used stamp will occur?
