In my USA catalog, Scott has little information about the location of watermarks on stamps. In many countries, the different location of a watermark greatly affects the value of stamps. Is it similar with US stamps? I have a nice block of 4 Cuba overprint 1 cent with watermark Inverted Reversed.
What do you think about these stamps?

Yes, I know it's 191 watermark.
The question is, is the location of the Inverted Reversed watermark interesting?

US collectors don't generally distinguish watermark orientation. Just being able to see a SL or DL watermark is a small victory.

If I recall correctly there are two types of the DL watermark having to do with the sequencing of the letters. I don't have a Scott's in front of me but both diagrams should be illustrated.

That is why I gave you the link, it explains the watermark orientations for US stamps.

Don,

Thanks for posting the watermark link. I had never carefully read through all of it. It is very informative, as is everything else on the stamp smarter site.
