Hi classic coins --

That is some really nice material you have posted over the past few days. I especially like the Chase plated pair with the Lexington, KY cds.

Continuing the "show and tell" theme of this thread -- and also a bit of plating 101 -- here is a #10A -- position 71R2E -- (and is also "the" stamp in the Chase photo).

The interesting thing about this stamp is that it shows the center line from plate 2E which Chase described in his book as "decidedly odd" -- as between the top of the plate and the 6th horizontal row, it is made up of two lines close together and of equal thickness. Then between the 7th, 8th, and 9th horizontal rows it is made up of two lines close together -- but with the right line being noticeably heavier than the left line (which the attached scan shows very well). And finally, opposite the 10th horizontal row -- the center line shows as one single, fairly heavy line.

Regards // ioagoa

Hi ioagoa, I appreciate the compliments.

That's a beautiful Chase-photo orange brown, with a nice blue Troy CDS. Thanks for posting the stamp and the interesting Chase comments about the center line.

Hi stampcrow --

Your 69-70L2L pair is a great example of the doubling of the center line on the late state of the plate.

With regard to the center line on the late state of plate 2 -- Chase notes that it "has certain peculiarities" -- and goes on to explain that opposite the 2nd through the 8th horizontal rows -- and sometimes the 9th, the center line is doubled with the right half being much heavier than the left. However, opposite the 1st, 10th, and, sometimes in later impressions, the 9th row -- the line is single.

A double center line like the one shown in your pair is always a tip-off for plate 2.

Again -- great position piece and thanks for showing it.

Regards // ioagoa

Staying on the topic of center lines, Carroll Chase wrote that the plate 6 center line is single, but it varies considerably in thickness, even opposite single stamps.

The center line left of this position 1R6 stamp doesn't show much variation in thickness.

The CDS is Boonsboro, Maryland. I love how Washington's eye shows neatly through the O.

Nice pair, Classic Coins! Sacramento CDS.

And I did like the 1R6 with George peeking through the "O".

Thanks for sharing.

classic coins --

Your 69-70 L1i is a very nice OB pair -- thanks for sharing it -- and please keep the "eye candy" flowing -- this is a great thread that you started!

Back into the recuts -- here is one that I just plated today -- a #10A -- position 99R2E -- showing recut variety #30 -- "line ties upper label to upper right diamond block and extends out to right frame line".

Regards // ioagoa

I'm trying to capture the color of the top left stamp. My camera is good for showing showing detail but doesn't get colors right. My scanner is useless for seeing details but is better showing colors.

I haven't plated any of these stamps (lazy I know) but I believe the top left is plate 1L and the other three are Orange Brown stamps.
I tucked it, the top left stamp, away with these other light OB stamps knowing I would eventually have to deal with it.

It has a touch of red hue to it but seems to brownish to be exp OB and lacks the purplish hue I see in Clarets.

Stephen, Those are three great looking OBs. Do two of them have no inner lines?

What color is that plate 1L stamp?

Sorry Gary, I edited the post after I posted the pictures.
As you can see by my dialogue above, I don't know what color it is. It looks closest to a light, I think pale is the term, Orange Brown.
