3c Washingtons are still a weak area for me. I ask for your wisdom. Thanks!

But not a Type IV. Appears to be from the bottom row of the plate. Most dealers have never found a bottom row stamp that wasn't a #26A.

I was afraid of that - I've already eliminated a few "26As" from this bunch - was hoping this was going to be an exception. Nope. Thanks though.

It looks like the left FL just barely goes up beyond the top of the stamp design, making it a continuous line going up. It is just hard to see the continuation with the perf hole being where it is. Bottom row stamp.
