Thank you, Stan. Yes, Rupp Brothers' stock is amazing. I am not surprised that such a rare item came from Rupp.

Another case of recuts that don't look like recuts. I'm starting with this being 8R1L,18R1L, 28R1L

But some of the recuts - well - looking for confirmation that what I'm seeing there are indeed recuts. Thanks in advance.

Sometimes, when all you need is a 3c stamp, all you have are three 1c stamps.

When that happens, you get a cover like this!

The previous owner marked the two outside stamps as Type II and the center stamp as a Type IV, but the APS Cert (#143333) calls them out as:

"United states, Scott No. 7, three singles used on cover, New Britain CT, genuine, section of cover rejoined at upper right."

Pretty cool cover - and I do collect the 1c Franklins, just not nearly as actively as the 3c Washingtons.

Sharing today for you viewing pleasure.

The center stamp is indeed a Type IV, Sc #9, recut once at top and twice at bottom.

ETA: The APS cert given is too old to be in the online database, but it is a bad miss by APEX.

rlsny, the plating as 8-18-28R1L seems to be correct. The fact that the double recut at the bottom of 8R1L is clearly seen confirms this as a Type IV strip.

I was able to add eleven new Plate 1 Early examples to my Orange Brown Plated collection today.

I never know whether to label these above or below the image, so this time I will label them from above.

Hopefully I got all of these labeled correctly with descriptions and plate positions.

Enjoy!

rlsny - your strip is correctly plated, and the recuts are there as normal for each position.

The inking is such that the recuts don't show all that well, but they are there. On some printings, that is just the case.

StanShepp, I'd like to add your images above to the Stamp Smarter Database. Earlier you had mentioned you were ok with this provided you were credited on the image. Attached is an image where I added "Image Created by Stan Shepp". I'll wait to hear back before I upload any of these. Thanks again for posting them.

Hey Stan --

Further Harper's post of earlier today -- those 1E stamps would make a great addition to the SS data set -- but wanted to ask if the platings have been confirmed as Early versus Inter state of the plate (or if you know who plated them) -- as the only difference is re-entry which often times presents very subtly and can be a challenge to discern?

Thanks // ioagoa

I am fine with them being added.
I agree that the platings should be verified by someone other than myself.
The majority of them are marked DSW.

Hey Stan --

Thanks for sharing the plating info on your 1E stamps -- DSW is David S Watt -- who, as you probabaly already know, was one of the well known platers of the issue.

Watt sold his 3c collection back in Nov 2006 in a Matthew Bennett auction -- link to the sale catalog is here:

https://bennettstamps.com/php/toc_a...g=1&sale=309

Dave plated lots of stamps -- so hard to say if yours are "ex-Watt" -- but he would always put his initials in very small capital letters below his plate mark.
