Whatever your damaged stamp is, it is certainly NOT on laid paper, but on horizontal wove i.e. it has a horizontal linen-binding as a wire/sieve structure.

Just ready for the "round archives" ;)

Thin to medium horizontal wove paper, from mid 1869 and later period... the commonest LQ paper

Duckworth would have put it in his "paper 10" group

Note how alignment of dimples on surface gives an unintended diagonal pattern.

Your responses are very much appreciated. Sorry for the delayed response. I rarely have a a lot of free time as I have 2.5 year old twin boys( for which I'm making an album for them from a collection of inherited stamps. So again sorry for the delay. I do appreciate the knowledge sharing. Very much so.

So withat last image, with the blue linen binding, that entire corner is the repair I mentioned. That's why I was having difficulty figuring the paper type out. It didn't seem to match the rest of the stamp...

So I've traced a kind of outline of the repair. Some of which looks to of a pulp-patch sort of repair. Sorry, again I don't know the lingo. Even the larger patch has had its edges blended in very well....

Time to pull the plug on that stamp - send it to hospice care so it can live out its remaining days thoroughly medicated and feeling no pain.

Send me your address (either through the board or through my web page (cgpostal.com) and I'll send you a replacement copy. I have a bunch left from a large lot I picked up to get a few specific ones that also deserve to go to new homes.

Doubtless I should have exercised more patience, enjoy the LQ's, it is gratifying to see a generous spirit of giving here too.

In very old collections it is common to see selvedge used as a hinge, you have this here as well as an old paper hinge. Condition was not important, as evidenced by that woofer.
