Where is the watermark on a one cent Liberty Head 1870's postal card, Scott's UX4?? I see where there is a huge difference in value and want to be sure I categorize them correctly. Thank you

The watermark on UX4 is similarly located to the watermark on UX3. Often only a portion of the watermark is visible. I see many hopeful UX4 submissions to APEX which are UX5. If you feel you really have a UX4 please submit it to one of the expertising committees for confirmation.

Thanks but I still don't know where to look! I acquired 1000's of stamps, covers and postals from a gentleman that was more a hoarder than a collector. As for the UX4's, there are about 30 of them mixed in with 100's of postal cards from the 1880's to the 1900's. I just want to correctly identify them when selling so as not to waste a true collector's precious time. Thank you!

Whoops! I apologize. See now that there was an answer to this query on a UX3 watermark. Either none of mine have a wm or my $1 flashlight isn't strong enough to show one. Thanks!

I use my Ott light, inverted, with a mask cut from cardboard. The usual way involves a 100 watt (or equivalent) light bulb.
