hi all,
hope you can help. I have the scott 2016 catalouge I work from and only at 10A is gives a list of various frame line recuts, like this one:

only recut right side frameline



my question is:

does this only occur on 10A, as it is only shown at that catalogue number, or can it be 10, 10a, 11, 11a??

Plates 1E, 1i, 5E and 5L exhibit this recut variety.

5L is an 11A, the others are 10As.

Yours is a 10A.

The New York cancel alone almost guarantees that this is a 10A, based upon period of use (Oct 7) 1851.

By definition, a #10 or #11 are Type I stamps and cannot have any inner frame lines.

The NYC cancel does guarantee the stamp is an orange brown #10A. I think you might be able to find that cancel used in OCT of '52, and I think I have one. I don't think OCT 1853 is a possibility. Plate 5L was not put into service until late 1855.

Winston, I have seen either the 2-bar or 3-bar variety of this used as late as March 1853.
I do not recall ever seeing a 4-bar used past 1851.
I would be very interested to see yours at some point.

I pretty much agree with you regarding the 4-bar slug. I was talking about the device around the slug insert. In other words, one canceling device, multiple slug configurations/appearances.
