Im convincing myself not to certify this stamp and to maybe throw it up for sale. I see 12 perf and no watermark. I found another one like it so I am assuming it is not rare. But could use some justification on why I should keep it. Thanks

The stamps you show are damaged, dirty and poorly centered with massive paper adhered to the backs. They are not bluish paper and cannot be perf 12 if there is no watermark. I have no doubt that someone from this forum would give you a nice copy of a similar stamp. They are worth little.

Yes,
line your first tooth, exactly in line with the first tooth of the 12 guage.
You will see the teeth below, gradually go out of sync.

All teeth should match for a correct guaging.
Practice, practice.

Looks like 12. You will never see a watermark with all of that paper adhered to the back.

I rarely advocate this, but those two stamps would be in my garbage pail. Sorry.

Thank you
I'm not sure if there is a like button to acknowledge that I read your comments so I reply for that until I learn otherwise.

Bluish paper is not anything even close to what you think it is.

Certifying is not the first thing you do. It is the last thing you do.
