I am trying to identify what exactly "vertical laid lines" are on the Scott #73. I have found some auctions online but cannot find any actual description. I understand this was the first printing. Other than that, I can't find any real information. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi hac5x3. The "real" information can be found in the Scott specialized catalog on the Introduction pages.
You can also use the search function button on the top of every page

Searching this site is like searching my son's room for a clean shirt. Countless "is this laid paper" posts but no real explanations. Many of the posts don't even conclude that a stamp is or is not on laid paper. But, I did some internet searches and found some pretty good images. Thanks for the reply Peter.

And my white paper on expertizing a Canadian laid paper example. I did reach a conclusion in it.

Laid paper doesn't exist! The paper manufacturing does NOT produce anything like that. Later fooling around with paper might get some structures pressed into it, but it is not stable and can be squeezed out ;)
