Haven't had many 3 cent threads lately. so I thought I'd bring this stamp here.
You can see the mark in the oval near the bottom left rosette. It's similar to the scratch on position 27L2L... But I can't seem to plate this stamp.

To me, that seems like a Plate 1L stamp.

I do see the scratch in the colorless oval as you state.

27L1L

The plating wizard over at http://stampplating.com is pretty good.
I plug in Plate 1L, 11A, B relief, and no guide dot, and this was the 3rd position out of not too terribly many options.

The mark we were looking at, as I suspected is a printing variety, clearly.

27L1L looks good.

That's a funny coincidence (to me anyway) that position 27L2L has a scratch in the oval and a stamp from 27L1L has an ink splatter that mimics it.
