I'm no expert on these -



Would anybody like to take a stab at a Scott number / type?

Thanks,
Al

Type IIIA, Scott 8A, from Plate 4.

It is broken at top (only), which is hard to discern due to being cut in.

Nice item.

Thanks Txstamp!

I had no clue.

I notice that it appears to have the top of the adjacent stamp below showing on the lower margin and that doesn't seem to be broken.

Would that make a difference?

This is an E relief from plate 4 which has a broken top line on the relief.

To answer your question about the stamp beneath this one - it would be an F relief, which also has a broken top line on the relief.

The appearance of the F relief, is kind of funny since it appears 'shaved' - the line is gone, but what is left kind of looks like a line at this angle if one doesn't know better.

And this one doesn't qualify, but is really close to having a full plume on the left bottom, which would have been Type 1c, #6b.

Tx, it reminded me of the 87R4 I posted a couple years ago, but that one was even more complete, but still not enough.

Breefmack-- nice stamp and nice find!

Thanks Ray,

Went researching the cancellation also, and came upon this 1851 3 Washington from Cherrystone Auctions which seems almost like the same person mailed it! Note the "Mr." hand written to the right of the Poughkeepsie, NY!



Cool.
Al
