This was on a piece next to the last one, they were joined at one stage but had been folded thus the wear, I salvaged one but this is beyond hope I think!

For those in the United States -- Happy Independence Day -- show us your July 4th cancels on an 1851 - 1857 imperforate.

Here is position 15L5L with a socked-on-the-nose blue town July 4th cds -- probable town name is Andover -- but state is uncertain as there were at least a half dozen states in 1851 - 1857 with towns named Andover.

Color of this stamp "in hand" is a beautiful 1856 yellowish rose red -- but since on a computer monitor the usual disclaimer applies about differences in scanner settings, graphic drivers, monitor settings, etc. -- all of which will distort the color you see on your screen.

Regards // ioagoa

ioagoa, I love the yellowish rose reds, and with its neat light-blue Jul 4 CDS, yours is the prettiest YRR I've seen! Thanks for showing it.

Happy Independence Day!

Classic Coins, that's pretty sweet!

What's up with the LLTr, the horizontal lines fall outside of the triangle. I've not seen that before.

Hope everyone had a great forth!

Moyock13, That's an interesting observation.

The print clarity of the 2R2L is quite good. I don't think ink pull is the cause of the horizontal lines appearing to extend beyond the triangle. I think this may be an illusion because the two curved lines in the triangle fade out at the bottom right corner.

Here is a clearly-printed lower-left triangle. When compared to the 2R2L, it looks like the curved lines on 2R2L would have intersected with the bottom horizontal line if they had not faded out.

Thanks CC, but I donno. Even the LLDB looks a little deformed compared to the later. There's something weird about your 2R2L, I don't believe that it's an ink pull. I looked on stamp plating and stamps 4 collectors (unfortunately there's no enlargement) there seems to be a longer horizontal line extension at the bottom to the LLTr on several of the 2R2L's that I was able to look at. Might be noting...

Further the discussion a few days ago about the differences between stamps from plate 2E and 2L -- (which very generally speaking were caused by extensive re-entry -- and with only some minor touching-up by hand) -- for comparison to the 2R2L posted by classic coins, attached is a scan of the same position, but from the early state of the plate -- 2R2E -- (which also happens to be "the" stamp that is in the Chase photo). If you download both of the images for 2R2L and 2R2E -- and bring them up side-by-side on your monitor -- some of the differences between the Early and Late states of the plate caused by the re-entry process (all as discussed in the Chase book) should be identifiable. One other interesting thing to note is that this position on the Early state of the plate was a C relief -- but when 2E became 2L, it was re-entered with a B relief. Regards // ioagoa
