I've been going through a small accumulation of early issues & came across a few Harding issues. I always like to take a REAL close look at this issue to see exactly what I might have. When it comes to the SC#613 I find insufficient information in the SC, blogs or other resources to definitively identify the SC#613. I have a perf gauge, use a 5x+ glass, read the descriptions & still left with a 99.9% not a 613 but it's that 00.1% that always leaves me wondering. Since the 613 is noted as a rotary press printing & printer's waste, I am wanting to confirm that the design dimensions measurement would determine that the 613 issue is mm taller than the flat press printing. I am going to reread the Stampsmarter section of this issue but need some guidance. I'm really not wanting to certify a 610-612. (I think there is a 613 on a post card framed hanging in the little bakery/café cross the street from the North Attleboro MA Post Office... really good coffee &). Anyway, I believe if I had some info on what else to look for I can put my 0.1% doubt to rest. I am working under the premise that it is not a SC#613. but

U.S. Scott 613 (rotary) has the perforation 11 gauge of U.S. Scott 610 (flat) and it has the design frame dimensions of U.S. Scott 612 (rotary).

In other words, U.S. Scott 613 (rotary) is a U.S. Scott 612 (rotary) stamp that has the perforation 11 gauge of a U.S. Scott 610 (flat) stamp.

[U.S. Scott 611 (flat) is an imperforate version of U.S. Scott 610 (flat).]

find a perf-10 (612) stamp and use it as a template - the 613 design should match it exactly... the reverse of both should show no telltale black ink spots that you will find on 610 and 611.

To All: Thanks for the info. I did a more thorough reading of the description in Stampsmarter yesterday & found that the 613 is 1/4mm taller than the flat plate issue which is noted to be no larger than 22mm. Upon measuring the design it is a SC#612... Oh well guess I'll take a ride to that little bakery/café & cause a scene when I measure the stamped postcard hanging on the wall...(just kidding..)
