I have this pair which I believe to be #26's. But I am posting it here for a couple of reasons. First it appears that the left frame line has been strengthened, and also as both rt frame lines have very slight doubling at the bottom. I hope my image is such that one of you might confirm my thinking and might indicate which plate and position I have here.

as I asked for help on the imperf 3 cents topic, and as a learning student probably will have many more questions it seemed appropriate to share some of my collection as well
starting with the #25 plate crack 47-48R7

i was fortunate to be allowed to acquire a intact pair in a private sale, none in SAN or Siegel, not sure how many are out there????

and a lovely cover to france with a 36 and 25, the 25 being 48R7. in this case I am happy the stamp is off center so the crack show nicely

Dutch, congrats on getting that cover. Its a beautiful thing. I was bidding on it as well but it blew past my budget there at the end.

These two original gum type V stamps showed up in a worldwide box (my wife does worldwide). Cool find - just sharing.

Dutch, nice crack!
I like the large margin as well.
I didn't even look at the other margin, that how much I cared that it was off center.

This share isn't supposed to be a response to your crack, but I came here to share this one and saw your along the way.

#26 Pair - Positions 71-72L18 - on cover.

The BIG CRACK as seen on the left stamp is very collectible and sought after because of how absolutely bold it is. The second (right) position, 72L18, also shows the skinny end of the crack and while it is less sought after than position 71L18, it is equally as rare.

Having the pair still connected and on a cover is exactly what my collections would want to have.

And it does.

:)

Enjoy!

Stan Shepp

Sharing today -

Scott #26 block of 3 with a NORWICH, NY "PAID 12" in a circle (Skinner & Eno - PM-PNc 41)

Simpson's lists this on pages 124 & 125 and says that it is a rarity 8, which means "Very Rare 4-6 known".

I got three right here!!

Left stamp with straddle margin and centerline.

Enjoy!
