It might be plate 24.

Yes I like the look of plate 24 also. I'm still very much the learner on plating 1d reds

For the missing imprimaturs, this is the site to go to:

Same problem here.

Interestingly, that appears to be Ian Wright's work. He is the one behind the site for Penny Black plates.

I am trying to plate for the first time. I have a nice PB copy that I am not sure about, think it could be 7 or 8, and could use some help.

The other one is on cover dated Feb 17 1841 but I am a bit lost on that one.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi azstampguy,

The TG is a plate 7 and the DA is a plate 6.

Hope this helps!

This is a site that I use to plate a penny black. It too has photos of actual stamps.

I was not able to access the site listed earlier from 'NSK'.

I'm happy if I get the right plate. But the site shows all positions for all plates if one is so inclined.
