Got a couple of perforations that need people to verify for me...Any help appreciated

First - I got a B17a "Puzzle Piece " stamp that has a perforation of 13.3 x 13.4........Hope some one can verify this perforation.


Second – Got a 165a {Die II} that has a very odd perforation....I am getting the perforation of....
T-11.2
B-11.0
R-11.0
L-11.0



Any help is much appreciated.

Re: B17a

[I believe you have asked about this one before, but I am unable to search back far enough to find it.]

What you show is not a B17a, the perforated single from a souvenir sheet.

Your example is a self-adhesive die cut single from the quarterly pack - B18i

Here are examples:



Big difference between a perforated stamp and a die cut stamp.

The arrows point to the 'nibs' that are characteristics of single stamps die cut from booklet panes.
