ClassicCoins started the imperforate thread, and it has held my attention during this time of social distancing. And, to be honest, I prefer the imperforate issues to the slightly later perforated issues. But let's see what you've got from the slightly later period! To those of you that prefer the later issue: show me what you have and try to convince me that I should take up the later stamps!!!

That's beauty, Stephen! The cancel being just clear of the facial features really gives your stamp good eye appeal.

If this weren't an error cancel, this stamp would set back the #26a EKU (11 Jul 1857) by almost six months.

FWIW, to complement this thread there already exist specific threads for each of the plates that produced Scott #24.

Couldn't find one for Plate 7 or Plate 10, but I thought we had both at one time.

Another superb #18, widglo46! I love the red cancel. I'm curious about the second cancel on your second #18.
