Hi guys. Am I correct on ID'ing these 3 stamps as a 24 or am I missing something? From going to sites, including Stamp Smarter, that is how I came up with my conclusion. I just want to make sure I did not over look something. As always, I thank you in advance.

Bakerj, would you mind sharing with us how you reached your (correct) conclusions here so we can see how the StampSmarter resources are used at the practical level?

I started out by assuming that the stamps were the most common. I read through the whole article on Stamp Smarter. Then I did a split screen with the image of my stamps enlarged on one side and the tips from the article on the other. Then I used the tips to come to my conclusion. After I concluded that they were #24, I compared my stamps to images from past auctions from Siegel Auction Galleries. Once I was sure my conclusion was correct, I posted here to confirm, just to make sure I did not overlook something.

The best first step that is too often skipped.
