as you see these were id as #24 on the back but my limited plating/ 1 cent Franklin experience thinks scott #20 (type 2)
letter inside confirms 1858

is it a strip of 3 or 3 loose ones?
and also there seems to be a perf missing between left and center stamp.....see my red circle. how is that possible?

what do you think?

Hi Dutchm I will leave most answers to the experts here, but answer one question. The missing perforation is fairly common, especially on older stamps. A perforator pin is most likely missing due to breaking. It still happens - I have several Transportation Coils from the '80's with perfs missing

By the way, voorspoedig 2021 gewenst,


Peter

I suspect that they are #20, but there are people much better then I am at telling these from scans.

Hi Dutchm
To my inexperienced eye they look like 3 singles as it seems some of the perfs overlap see the bottom abutting side between stamp 2 and 3
And I agree, #20 but I'm a novice at IDing these still.
Cheers

I agree, it does not appear to be a strip. Three singles.

All Ty II, Plate 2, A relief, #20. Left stamp should be easy to plate, given some time.
