Welcome.
You can read and learn more about this series of stamps here

Why do you think this is a #596 (with about 15 known) and not, let's say... a #552 (with over 4 billion printed) ?

I'm sure you've been reading for quite some time before joining. If so, you've seen many threads where we encourage people to assume that they have the most common stamp until they can prove otherwise. Please use the tools mentioned and come back with your findings. Good luck!

First off I'd edit your email before the harvesting bots grab it. 2nd, don't worry about watermarks on the 4th bureau issues because they are not watermarked. 3rd, pay no attention to the measurement of the stamp, it's not a accurate way to determine catalog number. Use the search in the classic US stamp forum and type in 596 and study the threads.

Excellent suggestion. I usually start with that, and find my answer is in there somewhere. Good Luck.

Fellow community member Chris Palermo wrote the article linked above http://stampsmarter.com/learning/ID...arities.html
and it is perfectly suited for threads just like this. It contains everything anyone needs to know when trying to understand the W/F rotary press rarities.

My suspicions, are, as have been the case with the majority of 596
hopefuls, is, in many cases they've only measured the horizontal perfs
and not the verticals, where, they're surprised to find out they need
to also measure the verticals, to eliminate #'s 579 and 632.

Secondly, for the most part, the majority of these posters are unaware
of the trait of flat press, and never talk about (nor show) the back of
their stamp, to elminate #554... and, quite frankly, from what I have
observed over time, most of them are unaware of the existance of 554...

While the stamp is not a 596 it is not a fake. Now with the information you have which stamp do you believe it to be and why?
