This stamp has plating info on the back, from what I can tell it doesn't make sense. Plate 7 I think are mostly type 5 with side ornaments cut away. This is not that. Any suggestions?

The stamp is a Ty IV from Pl 1-Late.

The plating on back says 84R1L.
The stamp is recut once at top and twice at bottom.
I don't have time now to check if 84R is correct, but it may well be.

Yes, that looks correct to my inexpert eyes. Thanks for the old style 1 reminder.

84R1L confirmed. The inside recut at bottom and the guide dot are distinctive.
