Hi

I'm pretty sure that the one on the right is a 24 (I think), but not sure about the one on the left.

I could use some help from the experts on these issues.

Thanks
Danny

Very cool site.

I think the left stamp is a 24, and the right stamp is a 23.

Did I get them correct?

Thanks

I agree with the left being a 24. I think the right one would need to be plated before confirming it's a Type IV instead of a Type II?

Anyone think the left has a chance of being a type Va?

Agree left is 24 type V ( I don't think Va)

Right stamp is interesting. For some reason I'm thinking it could be plate 4, IIIa. Need to plate since top is cut off. Could be IIIa?

To me it looks like a type II, but you are all better then I am at these. Especially from just a scan.

Hi stallzer - I think you may have it.

I only spent 5 minutes looking at it (not enough time to be 100%), but it does appear to be a B relief from Plate 4 and I think 14L4 is probably correct. If so - Ty IIIA #22.

Danny, the left stamp is indeed #24 Type V (incomplete side ornaments). Since it shows the scratches along the right side of the design it is not Type Va. The right stamp is not recut at bottom, so in order for it to be a #23 Type IV it would have to be recut at top, which we cannot tell because of the perforations. However, the scrolls under the N of ONE and the N of CENTS are more complete than is seen on Type IV stamps, leading to the conclusion that it is from Plate 4.

After looking at the Doporto image a bit more I'm about 100% it is position 14L4 and as mentioned that would make it a type IIIA.

Here is the image from the excellent Doporto Site. I believe I can see 3 of the 4 plating marks in your images.

Can't see the 4th because the perfs are tight to the ornaments on the right.
