Im back with a update's I want to tell you about,I don't have a conclusion at all, but I think you might be interested in new facts that I have found and I want to share with you .I also want to say being that no one has found a used Taylor 181 it doesn't look good,but it is the fun of the hunt.
I think I read they made over 200 to 300 of these stamps I my be wrong let me know ?But anyway they did find 10 unused 181's I don't think they would make just 10 stamps.
I have this book called Identification guild to US stamps by Charles N Micarelli and in this book it says the way to the "1875 printing is determined by its paper" so maybe that means it has to be hard ,white and wove which it still has to be determined.
So what I figured out maybe a way to do this was to compare my stamp to other 181's and see what the difference are.
So I found this web site https://siegelauctions.com/display_...hp?catno=181
that has most of these 181's the only problem is I cant see the reverse side of the stamp to check out the paper.
But I was amazed how some of these stamps are very detailed like the hair and the arch around the top of the US postage and some are not so precise .I know the color will always change with the photo problems with color preciseness but it showed me some some color's were close to mine.What I did see were the perforation's some cut sharp some had the fuzzy tips like a soft paper stamp.
This makes me wonder why so many differences, it all should have been pretty close to the same ,being they were done on one plate one color one time ?
That's all folks , thanks for checking it out I did this for people that have a interest in this stamp and may have some of the same problems I have in identifying this stamp .May be you have that stamp and would like to know about it and make your 450,000.00
The first is my stamp and the rest are the amazing 181 unused
