Hi all,

the stamp is flat plate, perf 12, double-lined watermark 191, so if im finally starting to understand identifying this is a #335?

Thanks

Correct...unless it is on 'blue' paper (rare) then it would be 361 and worth a bundle!

Sure looks like a single-line watermark.
Can you confirm 190 vs 191?

(You can do a 'wet scan' and scan the stamp while it is still wet with watermark fluid)

My mistake, it is a single line watermark.
