Bettie, on this specific countries stamps ( Canada ) it is best to list your question in the 'Canada' forum - you get a better response that way

It's only Scott 32 if it's on laid paper. Typically you can tell laid paper by holding it to light and seeing if you can see the laid lines (they will appear like horizontal or vertical "ribs" in the paper).

Only three #32s have been found, IIRC, out of the millions of 2c small queens out there. Some lucky fellow picked one out of an APS circuit book a few years back, so finds are not impossible -- but the odds that yours are a #32 are pretty long.

Your stamp is a 2c Small Queen Issue Scott #36. #32 is the 2c Large Queen On laid paper and is a larger stamp than yours. Also the design of the Large Queen is different.

Watermark is correct...Here is a Scott 32 compared to your Scott 36.


Robert

P.S. - Hope Watermark can come back on and tell you about the story how he found this Scott 32..Would be an interesting story for new people and those who don't know the story of his find..Fascinating.
