Classic Coins, thanks for sharing. That's interesting and 73R8 is the only position that has the partial doubling of the right inner line?

Is there any reference that lists all of the constant plate flaws? I think Chase mentions 6 flaws in the imperf plates.

Hi Moyock13,

Now that I look around a little more, the flaw above the lower-right rosette appears to be present on all positions, so it must have resulted from damage to the master die.

Regarding the presence of a right inner line that is doubled on my 73R8 example, since there was no recutting of the inner frame lines done on plate 8, these lines must be traces of the inner frame line from the master die. Why it is doubled on my example is subject to discussion. I don't recall seeing a doubled inner line on positions other than 73R8 that is not the result of recutting, but I don't doubt that a little looking around might turn up other examples.

Yes, Chase lists the constant plate flaws on the 3-cent imperforates, but there have been others discovered since his writing.

Thanks, Moyock13! It's a testament to the popularity of the 1851-57 imperforate stamps, and especially to all the interesting philatelists who have contributed!

Classic Coins / Ioagoa,

Health is on the mend but I have a ways to go. I was able to get a hold of an Epson scanner and re-scanned the item I asked about above. I am posting this as a test. My scan was simple full auto at 1200. I cropped it but did no other adjustments. I see this much better on my side when enlarged but wanted to see how it shows up on the sight. I will continue to play with this and try to confirm your feedback on plating. No real question on this one just a little follow-up



As always thank for your time and the information you have already shared.

Hobsun

Hello Hobsun013 --

Great to see you back on the board -- and happy to hear that your health is on the mend.

Based on your most recent scan, I can reconfirm that your stamp (the one with the black MAR 23 town cds cancel) is position 6R4.

Again -- great to see you back on the board -- and happy to help you out with your future plating endeavors.

Regards // ioagoa

Related to the strip of four above, today I coincidentally plated this #11 on cover to position 85R7. The stamp color is 1856 deep brownish carmine.

Just showing some stamps I acquired earlier this year in a single lot. The stamps were described as #11 and #11A in the ad. Many of the stamps were cut into on one or more sides, or otherwise faulty, but as a color student, I found some color specimens in the lot that enhance my color reference set.

The colors from top left are:

Orange brown (#10A)
Brownish carmine/more red (#11A)
Orange red (#11A)
Yellowish rose red/pale and yellowish (#11)

I like finding the yellowish rose reds, as they don't seem to turn up very often.

I'm thinking your top right stamp cancel is: N YORK & PHILa RR
I think it matches Towle marking 240-B-1.
There are a couple other similar tracings that may be it - 240-A-4, .. etc

Thanks for the railroad cancel info, txstamp. I don't have the Towle reference.

It's a funny looking ampersand that doesn't match the only Skinner/Eno example (PM-RR 7, page 341).
