Laurie 02, Could you also post an image of the back of the stamp. CC asked you for a better image because the stamp is a 10A. Sorry CC to let the cat out of the bag!

Laurie, Thanks for showing the closeup of the Cincinnati stamp. The two stamps labeled by color at the bottom of your stock page image don't seem to be correct. The Cincinnati stamp, on the other hand, looked like it had a chance of being an orange brown (#10A). After seeing the closeup, however, it doesn't appear to have the ink quality of a #10A. The stamp almost certainly was printed from plate 2L or 3 (therefore #11A), but I can't tell what the color is.

banknoteguy, The heavily recut line indicated by the green pointer at the top of the upper label block (without recutting in the upper right diamond block) is typical of plate 4 stamps, which is what you have there.

Thanks, Laurie 02. I had a reason for wanting to see the back but your Cincinnati stamp is just an ordinary 10A.

Ok I'm confused now, is it 10a like Sinclair says or 11a like CC says?
Please note it is a smartphone picture and not a scan and my phone tends to yellow the pictures a bit!

CC should look again. It's a 10A like Sinclair says.

Laurie, Your images of the Cincinnati stamp aren't good enough for me to confirm whether it is a #10A or #11A.

Nice pre-print fold, Stephen. I've got a couple of those, but not as extreme as yours.

banknoteguy and stallzer, I can claim no credit for putting together the big crack reconstruction . It was acquired intact from sinclair.

I'd have to agree with Winston that it is highly likely that Laurie's Cincinnati stamp is a 10A.

Also the back does not exhibit the mesh paper pattern Winston found on 1855-56 stamps, which eliminates later plates.

dudley that's a great crack reconstruction.
33L2 is always the key stamp.
