Laurie, even though the right-side ornaments are partially cut away you can see that they are more complete than they would be on a #24. Also, the break in the top frame line is much smaller than is the case on #24. This is a Plate 4 C Relief, which as sinclair said produced both #21 and #22.


Thanks Dudley, I missed out on this stamp unfortunately.
With your assistance and also from the other posters/Oracles on this thread, I'm slowly learning what to look for.

Need some help plating this stamp very recently received. Though listed as a Type V I am not convinced it is not a Va.


Caper, you are correct that this is a bottom-row F Relief, but I do not believe it is a Type Va. I do not think the right-side ornaments (esp. Orn N) are as complete as the Doporto example. It is not from Plate 10 (the C in CENT does not have the characteristic mark of bottom-row Plate 10 stamps). I will take a closer look tomorrow.

Dudley - As you indicated ornament N is less complete on mine. Assuming it is a bottom row stamp (which seems fairly clear) and the straight edge is where the left and right pane were trimmed (a bit of a guess) then that leave only 5 possibilities. From my review it is clearly not from plates 7,9,& 10 and it does not match better to 100L8. Soooo...

Thanks for your help in advance and anyone else's who wants to chime in!

It is 97L8. There is a curl between ornaments P & Q that gives it away.

The copy at the 1c plating archive does show this.

Those are some really nice covers, Ecostic! It's nice to see the interesting variety of advertisements. That Spruce Creek PA CDS is really neat!

It looks like you've got a #25 on the paper dealers cover.
I didn't look closely at all of the rest.
