Here is a Scott 369 with an odd perforation.
Usually the perforation is assigned 12.0 x 12.0
This one has a perforation of 11.85 x 12.0

All my other Scott 369's are 12.0 x 12.0
Can any one else find another for me...??

Robert

Here is the perforation of a normal Scott 369 with perf. of 12.0 x 12.0


Now here is the top/bottom perf. of this stamp.

Gentle suggestion ... Why not start very simple and show a normal stamp aligned with the stamp in question. Introducing the perforation gauge as a secondary item complicates the comparison and introduces inaccuracy. Then perhaps introduce the gauge in later images after the direct comparison has been made.

I find it hard to believe that soaking is the cause.

Is the image the same width or also differing by about the same amount?

Trying to find production varieties by studying used stamps has an added level of challenge than studying mint examples.

Robert, what drives you to perf-check a common modern stamp with only one listed production type?
