I just thought this was a nice looking stamp. Perhaps grist for your mill if someone wants to plate it. Very dark blue.

Looked at the database. I'm not good at this. My best guess is 7L1L.

A larger scan would help but I think your assessment is correct. I think I can see the plating marks in the top left ornament and the "G" in postage which are also shown in the Ashbrook & Neinken plating diagrams.

Lovely stamp.

Concur, 7L1L. Here's one of my copies of this position for comparison.

I've only made a few attempts to plate so far. I'm trying. The Stamp Smarter database was great for this. txstamp narrowed it down to one plate, ten stamps to check. With the multiple scans for each position, interestingly I found the Neiken images the easiest to use. Anyway, thanks all.
