I don't have another one from this series to tell if wide or narrow between four and cents. Is it a number 11 or a trimmed 44?
Thanks for helping.
Paul

If you're using Scott numbers, I believe you'll see that 11 has "POSTAGE" in the top frame/tablet? I think you have narrow spacing, trimmed.

(If that stamp has a "wide" setting, I'm not seeing it.)

Scott does a poor job with these issues. Your stamp is a type A5 which could make it a trimmed 44, 44A, 44B, 47, 52 or 60. The wide and narrow do not apply to the 4 cent issues.

Here is an excellent exhibit of these issues:

Thanks Guys. Perfect response. Loved the link. You were correct about the "postage". Totally missed it.

"Catalogue blindness" is a known condition. We all catch it from time to time.

It doesn't have any telethons because, for most of us, at least, it's only temporary.

Agree, it does however, decrease with experience.

Telethon to raise money for chronic diseases, i.e. The Jerry Lewis Telethon for Muscular Dystrophy.
