Is This Stamp Stamp 499.e


No, for the quick, short answer.


If you want the long detailed answer, keep reading...


499e is a booklet pane of six stamps (360 subject); as such the single stamps have one straight edge at a side (4 positions) or a straight edge at the side and bottom, a corner, (two positions).

Scott 499e:




Now the fun part. 499f is a pane of 30 with singles having one straight edge top or bottom (18 positions), at right (one position), at the top or bottom and one side, a corner (two positions), and perforations on all four sides (nine positions). Thus your stamp could be 499f or just a 499 sheet stamp which can have a straight edge at the bottom. It is either difficult or impossible to tell a 499 sheet stamp single from a single from a 499f booklet pane. See: https://www.stampcommunity.org/topi...PIC_ID=35348

Scott 499f:




The line across the bottom of your stamp can occur on both booklet panes e and f as well. Only certain booklet panes from the printing sheet will have such a line.

Most likely just a plain, regular used 499, not lake in color, "499" with no letter following. I won't guess at color over the computer and, even then, I would expect "lake" to be a darker color in your image.

Booklet stamps of the 3rd Bureau Issue, including those of the AEF panes, have shorter and wider designs than their sheet stamp counterparts. So these can be differentiated by the different aspect ratios.

PPGuy, in reference to the 499f positions, one minor edit: "at right (one position)" should be "at one side (one position)" since the 499f pane can be left-tabbed or right-tabbed.

You are completely correct and I knew better , especially with the 360 AEF plate diagram to the right of my keyboard while typing. But stupid me just glanced at the pretty picture of the pane I have no interest to own, tabbed left nor right, and forgot to allow for that reflective change. Thank you for catching this.

Don't beat yourself up, PPGuy, it was a minor error. I have done far worse myself, including on this board!

Thanks, Rhett.

However, having written for publication during a bit over four decades I much rather confront myself that have to deal with the comments and questions one of my boneheaded comment may produce. How do I know? Personal experience!
