Here is a stamp I have and wish some help with its' identification.
I believe it is a type 1 as it has a top and bottom frame line.Also the C in cents is somewhat disturbed, might that be one of the Gents versions. Any information offered would be appreciated. Thanks

and here is another image with an interesting blue cancel.

Both are Type I. The GENTS variety is a Type II stamp.

I know the perfs are a bit off Chipshot, but the second stamp with the blue cancel is a fine looking stamp!
Type 1, I agree Sinclair no inner framelines

Here is another I wish to qualify if someone would be so kind.
I think it might be a 25A with the inner frame lines recut and I tried to get the color real close, might it be Dull Red?



Any comments are appreciated and I understand due to all of the variations in scanners, adjustments and monitors asking for an opinion on color is likely fruitless. Thanks all!

Chip, Yes, that's a very nice #25A with what looks like one or two lines recut in the upper left triangle.

A dog, but a partial imprint capture.
On cover with letter dated 1858.

John Becker - have you tried to plate this? All you gotta do is figure out the plate #, and it look like you might even have a muniscule part of the # at LL. I am trying to figure the cancel - my guess is (Terre) Haute, LA, but the remnant of a letter at B doesn't look like an 'A' or 'a'. Maybe 'D' in (PAI)D?? I don't know the layout of a Terre Haute cds.

No, I have not tried to plate it. I have little interest in plating. The CDS is Terre Haute. Ind.

Here's a great article in the Chronicle that would help plate that stamp.

Well, duh! I guess I mixed up Terre Haute and Baton Rouge in my head. Anyway, it is a nice imprint capture - if it were perfectly centered, you'd have never gotten the imprint. Well, maybe so - it is quite wide for the issue.

I have pulled that issue of the Chronicle off the shelf for bedtime reading tonight.

Add: based on the location of the imprint to the stamp, it matches up with plate 9 extremely well, and plate 15 as first alternate. A very useful article!

John, agreed.

It was a bit intimidating, for me at first, but after a couple of runs through it.., it clicked.

Seems difficult to find a 25 or 26 that's well or decently centered, without the perforations digging into the label blocks or frame lines.
Here's a 26 that's decently centered.
