This is a link you'll want to check.





You will find info on one of your stamps there.

The 1c black Franklin is an essay for postal stationery. Hope someone will chime in with more details.

Thanks for the info on the cut square. Fascinating on how many different forgeries exist.

So true. I've been running into too many faked grills lately. It's a real bummer.

A complete listing (according to my notes) of the forgeries of 19th century US envelopes appears in Part II of the UPSS Catalog of the 19th Century Stamped Envelopes and Wrappers of the United States, 2018, 4th Edition.

I didn't find the specimen item in the UPSS Catalog of United States Stamped Envelope Essays and Proofs. It does look familiar and might be a postal card essay. I do not have a copy of the UPSS Historical Catalog od U.S. Postal Card Essays and Proofs.

All of the UPSS catalogs are available through the APRL or for purchase at http://upss.org/code/publications.php
