I'm in the process of plating a number of 3c Washington stamps from the 1851-1857 series. Per Chase and a variety of online sources, I have not found a reference to the right inner line going up too far except for 96R2e.

The photo is of a stamp which shows what I would call the right inner line running up too far, but it is relief A and 96R2e is relief B. Are there other plate positions with a similar right inner line?

Hi mdknight,

Since the upper right corner is the only one where the inner frame line would not intersect the rosette if it was cut too far, it's possible that Chase treated this corner differently, and didn't consider the line to be cut too far if it reached the upper right triangle.

Here are four other examples where the RIFL cuts into the upper right triangle:

100L2E



43L2L



64R3



93R3

Thanks for the photos. It looks like it is more common than I thought. In some cases the right inner frame line connects with the upper right diamond block. It seems to me that would be a characteristic that one could use to help identify the plate position. I'm not sure why Chase didn't document that feature. I will make my own notes in my database if I see that for a particular position.
