Hey guys, can you check to see if I have these identified correctly?

2nd - #26
3rd - #26a (on thin paper)

I think all three are 26. The frame line on the last stamp clearly extends past the bottom of the design.

Aaah, I thought it meant that both left/right framelines are not touching the design. I guess I need to get into plate numbers as to why either the frame is wider or design smaller on number 3.
Roger that, I totally misunderstood what "extends past design" meant.
Thanks rlsny!

Thanks Classic Coins! It was a huge help.
Quick question: On one of the 26a's it shows only the upper-right most frame line continue upward..
Is it still considered an "a" if there's even one line going past the design?

I think the line there is actually broken - just a very small break.
