I have a great request to the honorable group of specialists. For me, the Scott 10 and 11 stamps are still a mystery and I still have trouble with the correct identification. Please rate if there is something more interesting among the stamps shown below?
I noticed the C stamp where the letter S in the word postage is somewhat similar to 8, and the H stamp where the letter E in the word cents is damaged and CFNTS came out of it. I will be very grateful for all comments and tips. Thank you very much and best regards in the New Year.

Let me understand, the badge F and G are, in my opinion, different types, and a colleague sinclair2010 wrote that both are type II Scott 11A. Where do I look wrong?

Your stamp F is cut in a bit and the cancel obscures some vital areas, so its a bit hard to appreciate it.

Here is a similar 3c stamp, from position 70L3. I haven't tried to plate your stamp, but it is similar to this, and I'm showing this to clearly point out to you that there is a right inner line but the left frameline here takes the place of the left inner line. It is a minor variety in its own right, and is certainly an 11A, since it has an inner frameline.

Well, for what its worth, your stamp F, is in fact position 70L3.

That doesn't change anything - just the plating minutia, if it interests you. It is part of what's called the 3-rows part of plate 3, where there is some very unusual recutting being done, like this.

One difference between F and G is the color. Though they are the same design type, shades of this issue are interesting and collectable. Have a look at this post: http://goscf.com/t/70251

It is quite understandable that the F stamp causes confusion. The fact that an inner line is missing on the left side does not preclude it from being called a Type II. There are many other examples from Plates 1E, 1i, 5E, 5L that only have an inner line on one side. Worse still are the stamps from Plates 1E and I that have only a short and faint bit of recutting that force the Type II classification. Due to the ironing out affect of the transfer roll, plates that have been reentered, such as Plates 1i and 5L, can have faint inner lines that are difficult to detect. Lots of fun. Collecting these stamps by catalogue number does not do them any justice.
