Looks like it's perf 10, so no, not #596. Notice how, in your last photo, the perfs don't line up with the dots at 11 on the gauge, along the entire top side?

The perforations along the side do not align with "11", They are half a perforation off from one end to the other. You will find the top/bottom are perf 11 and the sides are 10.5, thus a Scott 632.

Nope. Wrong shade and not perf 11 on the sides. I would guess a 632. Forget measuring the design. It is not going to be meaningful. Finally, the cancel does not fit into the pattern of known 596's at all.

Believe me I never thought it was. But I have seen how others have thrown stamps up here and got pounded for not doing their work. I promise I did work hard at this. Still trying to figure out how to line up these perfs. Thank you all for your input. I still have roughly 100 to 150 to go through just like it. Thank you for your help. Rick

Put down the calipers in this case. More research.

This is one of the stamps which color makes it fairly easy to ID, the yellow-green color was used in 1927, so it is a #632. But even if a hobbyist does not know this, the first step is always to check the perfs. Your stamp is not a 11x11, it is a 11 x 10.5.

Aligning the perforation tips with a rotary press stamp like a 3 cent Presidential is quicker and more effective than matching to a metal perforation gauge.
