Just seeing small covers and I will post this image. If and when I get my hands on it I will check its' dimensions. I think it is under 4 inches, not an envelope but just folded paper.

Been away on travel.

Stephen, I like that 3cts Boston CDS.

mootermutt987, the OB on that New Bury Port cover look intense. Is it a color variant?

Chipshot, It's good to see you posting. That's a really nice Port Huron, Michigan FLS.

Guy's, nice small covers. Here's a small cover with an 11, relief A, 40R7, doesn't really compete for the smallest though. More interesting to me are the markings on the back.

Nice small covers. I might have one to post.

But in the mean-time I have a question about the stamp below (on cover). I have not tried to plate this yet but I am going to. The question is, should I consider this an 11A with no inner LFL? or is there a faint inner LFL?

Nice double transfer at bottom. Anything else I have missed that can be used to plate this one?

Enlarged crops of bottom and left below stamp image:

That's a nice, clear printing, banknoteguy.

Yes, If it has at least one inner frame line on either side it is an 11A.

This is a very familiar position. Let us know how you plate it.

Moyock13, That's a nice ladies cover, from a town I've never heard of. Thanks for showing it.

I think I need to clarify what I was asking.

In using the Plating Wizard, one of the options deals with Inner Lines
and the options are:




This stamp looks like it has only one inner frame line but under magnification, I see a faint partial left inner frame line. Should I select Two Inner lines or Right Inner Line only?

Ah. I misunderstood. Technically, your stamp has two inner lines.

Well done! The reason I wrote; "This is a very familiar position" is because I posted another 83L5L on page 9 of this thread.

I thought I remembered seeing one like this earlier but this thready now has so many pages it is somewhat difficult to review all the pages! And you can't search if you don't have a handle. But after I plated it, I did use the search and saw you had posted a nice example on page 9 of this thread.

This #11A is from sheet position 78L3, "three rows" Variety #8 One Extra Line at Right (Two Inner Lines).

It's a pretty clear printing, in a nice color that I haven't determined yet (possibly yellow brown)

I'm trying to figure out if this was canceled with a manuscript town name, but I haven't figured out the town, if that's what it is. Possibly South Stow* on the top line. Could it be a postmaster's name? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My guess is that it's not a postmaster, could be a clerk. I googled postmasters from 1850's and only one or two fit.

1. Samuel Stowrs PM 04/22/1857 PIMENTO VIGO COUNTY IN
2. Samuel Stow Jr. PM 12/10/1849 WHITNEY POINT BROOME COUNTY NY

Too bad it's not complete with the cover.
