Hello everyone. Cool story I bought my daughter a wicker picnic basket filled with old and new newspaper clippings and
The one that lined the bottom was a small calender from 1933 wrapped in paper and plastic about 5 times so interested of COURSE we opened it and inside was a message that said save for a rainy day
Along with this stamp. After exhausting research and measurements that have all came out the same which are 19.25 by 22.5
So I believe it is a Scott 596. Any help would be wonderful thankam you

No it's not scott 596. The perforations vertical to horizontal doesn't match.
Scott 596 has perforation 11 on both sites. It's foremost scott 632 (rotary printing).

Thank you for your input so fast. So this is not 11/11 19.25 by 22.5.I used the perf gauge 11/11 and have measured countless times. Not doubting you just curious how 632 Came about I believe it is 11/10.5 19.25 by 22.8...please let me know and thank you again.

You ought to throw your ruler out - the measurements do not mean much.
Best thing to do is follow Don's link and follow that site

Measuring is meaningless, the dimensions are far too tight to use for identification. Many folks fall into the 'measurement' trap, if you search this forum (or read the article linked above) it will reveal just how many people try to use measuring as an ID method. It is not how you ID these stamps. As stamphunter posted above, your stamp is a 632.

Your photo shows that the perfs do not line up. Note the shift from the left to the right.
