Yes, those look exactly as they should for watermark 166 numerals.

Thanks rodgcam,
I would also like to find more information about the process,
All I found was it's in the drying method.

(Bump)
Sorry 22crows, didn't see your reply, yes I've been there :)
I think my catalogues provided more, but not exactly what I was looking for.
Ended up finding a paper online about the subject that sort of explained, Still not a picture perfect though.

I have had a very poor response with Signoscope.
I have not had it very long,
so I feel I may be missing something.

I know the stamp back, has to be pristine, no part hinges
No watermark fluid

For something so expensive, I am surprised at the results.

Thanks rod,
Can I ask what brand and model number your using?
I was recently given some information that I'm questioning,
(probably shouldn't it comes from a good source)
Just feel I should double check, could have been a generic response,

A most generous gift from SCF member "Calstamp"

Employing on 2 AA Batteries, have not tried the 3v plug
do not have the AC adaptor.
At this stage, I would not recommend it.
That image in the lens on the boxcover, is misleading in my opinion. (photoshopped)

The next watermark detector I would like to road test,
is the doohickey with replaceable coloured lenses.

These 'Safe' guys also offer a similar digital contraption that counts perfs on any stamp...

Thanks rod,
I was looking at the SAFE T3 but for what it cost $$$
Thinking I'll have to pass, (for now) not being sure if it would do The job.

I'm hoping that it was just a generic reply I got,
Maybe it was thought I was talking about WMK #168
That would make more sense to me.
