Multipart question on the subject of re-perforated stamps. Consider the attached photos of U.S. Parcel Post stamps for this discussion.
1) Can we expect to see uniform dimensions on stamps of the same issue, or is some variation inevitable? Note the $1 specimen in the set pictured below. To my eye, its vertical dimension seems shorter relative to the others, suggesting a re-perf of the top or bottom dimension.
2) The diameter of each perforation on the bottom edge of the $1 issue appear more "shallow" than those on the others. The holes seem less uniform. More evidence of a re-perf, or are these acceptable anomalies?
3) Does anyone think the 5c specimen's left border may be re-perfed?
I've already read the Philatelic Foundation's excellent article (http://www.philatelicfoundation.org...erforation/)
plus a number of threads in this forum, so your replies here may reinforce my suppositions. Or not...*** Moved by Staff to a more appropriate forum. ***
