Wmk 168 "Cyrillic EZGB & Wavy Lines"
The watermark is wmk 168 "Cyrillic EZGB & wavy Lines". Here the wmk is brought out by using watermark fluid.

The watermark is present in the issues produced from 1866-1906. It is usually not critical that the wmk be found for these issues for identification purposes.

Bump..
Wow…this wasn't all that long ago
I think I've learned a bit since this post….maybe….it's questionable ;)
Let's try a difficult one that's taken me sometime to feel like I may have got it?
(There is very little to no extra value added for partials it's just entertaining for me)


Ok so here it is.. scott#28






On quick dried paper

Someone with more experience may have a easier time thenI did.
But as you can see not that long ago I didn't even know what I was looking at :)

Ok let's dip it




This is where I got stuck….until I mirrored the image



My best guess…..again could be wrong



With a little bit of transparency



What do you think seem right?

Wrong about what? Please try to speak English? Some of us do not understand photographic rambling!
No disrespect intended, but please be a little clearer

No offence taken Peter,
I thought a picture was worth a thousand words in any language
Fix the post hopefully you can understand my question?

Justfella - Given that the 8k issue is only known with watermark 168 what were you expecting to see?

Rodgcam,
I'm not sure why your thinking I'd be expecting something else?

I just like finding the fragments of the letters and trying to see what they are.
This one was more difficult for me and I was asking if it seems right?

I like doing this lately …like a puzzle it's
Entertaining for me

Here's the two fragments from the original post..

Justfella - Your first post is as follows:


Quote:

The language "if anything" infers "nothing" as does "or not".

If you had stated in the first place what your goal was the topic may have made more sense. If you know that the stamp is watermarked and you know what the watermark is than "nothing" was never a viable option. No?

No offense my friend but your posts need a wee bit more focus and clarity and you may receive more replies.

Cheers

There was a good gap between the first post and the latest
I started off with "this wasn't that long ago" fallowed shortly by "I think I've learned a bit since this post"

Meh, I think I'll just go with my conclusion.
Feeling pretty good about it

Thanks for the pointers

I could use another perspective on this…is that a 2?




Is this a 1?

I see what you call the digit "1", but it feels more like wishful thinking (or seeing).
Maybe you should highlight what you refer to, by drawing around the figures that you see.
