I am new at this. I found some old letters. I wanted to more about them. I ventured down a rabbit hole of stamps and maps.




Thanks for the help

Which stamp do you refer to? What makes you think either has a grill?

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.

The top stamp is clearly grilled but likely only an F-grill, Scott #94. The other 3c stamp is a Scott #26, which you would never find with a grill.

A stamp with a grill should have a rectangular series of "puncture wounds" in the stamp which you may be able to see or even feel. Tilt the stamp, use a magnifying glass, all the usual things. The slightly darker or "stained" area on the first stamp appears to be a grill, but only you can be sure.
