Hi Laurie. Thank you.

The image of your stamp is a little blurry. I don't think I could plate it without a clearer image.

The level of (lack of) detail in that scan is really rough to work with for plating. No worries - my scanner is no better, though, sadly.

Anyway, since there's scant detail to see, the one major thing that pops out to me is the spacing to the stamp at left. It yells out to me that its very possibly the 4-5R column spacing on plate 1L. That is a well-known narrow column.

I would start my elimination effort on this stamp with 95R1L, and I'm thinking you might finish there as well - meaning that may well be it. That position is Ty IV, by the way, with a small recut at top, which you probably wouldn't be able to see anyway on your stamp. Good chance its that one, but a hi-res scan could probably confirm or disprove.

CC - your Baltimore covers are nice.

I can definitely say that Baltimore was used to using two different colors - one for CDS and another for killer.

Maybe not as much in the 1851 era as prior, but your cover is 1851 - early in the era.

For reference to what I'm talking about, refer to a cover I just posted from 1850, from Baltimore, and note the differing colors, only about a year and a half earlier. The "R" was applied in Philadelphia on arrival, and not in Baltimore.

Thanks for the clearer image of your 1-cent stamp, Laurie. I was unable to find any distinct plating marks. I initially thought 93R1L might be a candidate. Direct examination under high magnification might be needed to confirm the position.

Thanks for your input, txstamp. Your experience with the 1-cent issue exceeds mine by far.

txstamp, Thanks for your comments on the Baltimore covers.

Thanks also for the link to your interesting 1850 cover. I reviewed James Milgram's fascinating article in Chronicle 249 titled Unofficially Registered Covers Franked with 1847 Stamps that you referenced in your post on the Frajola site. I also found it interesting that the color of the Baltimore hand stamp on your cover matches the color of the "R" stamp applied in Philadelphia.

CC - I'm glad you enjoyed the article and cover.

I had wanted one of those early Philadelphia Registered covers for decades. Last year, I finally decided it was time.

Laurie 02, if you crop the black area around the stamp to the edge of the stamp and even crop the lower portion below the ornaments it should provide the detail necessary for plating. Also, do you upload to the site or through a 3rd party hosting?
