Hi all! I just want to make sure I have this I.D.'ed right before I get too far along and forget about it. From everything I have seen and measured, I believe it is. If you have an opinion that is different, let me know so I can see where I may have over-looked something or whatever. Thank you in advance.

Thank you kindly. I am learning a lot and trying to do my research before I ask any questions. I was just double checking before I labeled it and got occupied with more.

Not so fast. I agree your stamp is perf 10, but that leaves 2 possibilities, J53 and J60, depending on the watermark or not.

Based upon the color I would bet the ranch on rose rather than carmine lake for this block.

Shadows in the selvage suggest that the block is watermarked showing an inverted "P" above the plate number. Scott J60 is not watermarked. See https://www.kenmorestamp.com/detecting-watermarks

That puppy has been dipped. No watermarks. Between where the gum ends and thin spots on the paper, it kinda gives the illusion of a P. On the top right, it looks like someone may have used a pencil and then erased it.

That is what I thought based on the color.
