I am new at this and need some assistance. I have several cancelled stamps that are attached to postcards and I find it very difficult to measure. I do not understand everything yet either. I keep reading and researching though.
Can anyone tell me if this is a rotary Scott 632? I think it is and that will help me with the research of the others.
Kind Regards,
Deborah

Do you have a perforation gauge? I think it probably is a 632, but would need to measure with a perf gauge (11x10.5) to be sure. If you don't have one, I believe you can download & print one from stampsmarter.

I did that but how on earth do you measure with the stamp attached. I can't seem to figure that out.
Thank you,
Deborah

You need a gauge made of transparent plastic that you can lay on top of the stamp rather than vice versa, like this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Clear-Plas...AOSwPe1T29zN
