Hi there,

How can I tell if the following is a plate proof or a die proof? The paper is kinda thin - seems like India paper).

There's no guaranteed way of differentiating the two types. Generally, plate proofs will often appear in multiples, while die proofs will be singles with large margins. My guess is, this is a plate proof cut away from multiples.
