USA Scott number 2116, the large Flag booklet issue pictured below, lists a "SCORED PERFORATION" variety in the 2020 Scott's Specialized catalog. Would some erudite member kindly define this? I'd be greatly appreciative! Thank you!

Apologies if this has been answered before but search is disabled.

"Scored" usually means that there is a deliberate colorless indented mark in the paper. In this case there should be a straight indented "line" running along and through the perfs.

Aha! Thank you! I was thinking along those lines but asking others is a great way to learn just a little bit more. The more I read the more I realize how much there is to philately.

So this would be easiest to see in multiples. The indentation would probably be difficult to detect on a used single unless a very large portion of the perforations remained.

I wonder if other USA issues had scored perfs.

I would assume that singles would almost always separate along the scoring, so a multiple would almost certainly be required. I had not even heard of this example of scored perfs; I have no idea whether there are any others.

FYI - The search function of the site is down but there are instructions for using the GOOGLE search on the search page. It works great.
