Hello everyone, I need help identifying 8 Swiss stamps. I do not collect Swiss stamps. The different papers and fine to rough impressions have thrown me for a loop. Any help would be much appreciated. These are the second group.

Thefinfin, I might be able to be of some help, but the pictures are too unclear. Could you post scans, larger and not behind a mount? Also, just to keep 'em straight, just one at a time.
And front and back please!

Peter

Sorry, but bigger images won't help with these. These work quite well when expanded.

Going from left to right, the 10r is Scott 26 with a red thread.

There is only one 2r value. It looks like the green thread has been removed, but that might be hard to see because of the thickness of paper. A dip in watermark fluid would show if there's a thread there or not. As before, a missing thread is a major fault.

The 5r has a black thread, so is Scott 25. Getting it now?

The 15r has a green thread (Scott says emerald). The paper is thin, the impression is not all that fine, but that's an earlier type cancel so without having it in hand, I would say this is Scott 17.

I thank you both for the replies. I was looking for threads in the paper itself, like in US revenues. That makes since where it does say thread, and not silk paper. I will add better pictures sometime on Friday.
