I believe this to be U484, but not positive.

Thanks in advance. John

Looks like a nice clear embossing. Should be easy to measure. looks like white paper.

Per UPSS:
Die 132(A) Head large (9 1/4 mm from tip
of nose to back of head); left figure '1' tilts
to left; heavy lettering; all 'T's have shorter
tops (1 mm).

Die 133(H2) Head small (8 3/4 to 9 mm from
tip of nose to back of head). Right figure '1'
tilts to right; fine lettering; all 'T's have long
tops (1 mm). Not used for window envelopes.

My take is that it is a U481 (U484 comes only in small size envelopes).

If OP would show us a scan of the reverse (or choose high back or low back) and identify the watermark, we could provide the exact UPSS number.

ThomasGallaway, thank you so much. I will write all that good information down on a self stick piece of paper and put it on the slip that this envelope is in.

I do not collect envelopes but it's nice to take a blank piece of philatelic material and put a name to it.
