All of these stamps appear to be very common.

What do you mean by "some look rare"?

When you say "I'm sure I counted right" is that what you are doing - counting the peaks? That tells you nothing. I'm assuming that is what your bottom picture is trying to show with the circled area and the horizontal lines and that is not how you do it.

You need to use a perforation gauge to determine what the perforations are.

Stop counting. You need a perforation gauge. There are printable versions available.

Clear "rare" from your mind. It's blinding.

A couple of "better" printable gauges can be found athttp://www.stampsmarter.com/learnin...rfGauge.html

No substitute, however, for a professionally manufactured gauge.

Having tried many, I can personally recommend Stanley Gibbons' Instanta Perforation Gauge.
