I too would appreciate your review of these stamps which I sorted out as not having continuous frame lines. That being the only criteria for my sort and with my limited knowledge here. Comments are appreciated. I have seen the squashed images but need more training before I would try that. TIA



It seems that less defined frame lines are better candidates for 26A, is that correct?

Chipshot - though difficult to see too clearly it appears 5 or 6 of the stamps shown on the large batch you posted are Scott #25's.

It appears there may be several 26A candidates in the last batch you posted. The ones you feel strongest about should be scanned with a higher resolution and posted individually. Look for a clear break in the continuity of the side frame lines. Seeing color above or below on the perf tips when there is a break is a big give away there was a stamp above or below the break.

Here are the first 2 in that group rescanned at 1200. I see some similarities in them with a bend in the rt frame line and position where there is evidence of the stamp above. I do not see any breaks in the frame lines.




I think they are both B reliefs however I would like confirmation of that and I know I have a long way to go to make that call with confidence.

This is a copy of the middle stamp in the group which has a bend in the left frame line which might help a plater identify it.

This left frame line has a couple of breaks and the right is perforated such that it is barely visible.

Here is a detail of the left frame line which I am pleased to post with my limited imaging skills.

I noticed that the very dark color stamp I posted (last of the three) is not a bottom row stamp as a portion of the next stamp is visible. Given the obvious frame line break I think I'm comfortable calling that a 26A.

Chipshot - the 2 stamps posted together are 26A's.

My guess is the single one shown below the two is a 26.
