Nice little #37, horizontal wove. It seems to have a compound perf. Top=12.25, bottom=12.0, sides are 12.1

Are compound perfs uncommon, or just a result of the quality of production in the early SQ era?

Would you agree this is even compound?

All comments appreciated -


Here is the stamp:

Here is a GIMP image with the top and bottom. P1 and P3 line up, but then the different perfs start to show.

Hi Lars714

There are many compound perfs associated with these stamps. Below is a list that Jogil put together for the 3 cent Small Queen.

I redid your perfs again and darkened it for a better look...Both TOP and BOTTOM look the same to me....

Just my opinion...Robert
