I'm in Canada and looking at the 2cent QE II - Wilding Portrait Scott #338.

In the many sub-categories it is being described as Ribbed (horiz) or (vert). I finally found what "ribbed" meant. My question is can I feel the ribbing on the stamp? Or under magnification would I be able to see the ribbing?

Someone, please help this lost one

Okay, never mind I found my own answer.........if you turn the stamp over you can see the ridges whether vertically or horizontally.

Must be those cat's eyes of yours, Luree, I've been collecting stamps almost forever
and never thought of this simple technique of turning stamps over.

Also, thanks to my membership in this cutting-edge stamp club, today I learned that
there is a front and back to most postage stamps. I spell Stamporama "helpful".

John,

I'm glad I could help you. I actually saw it by accident, then realized what the book was referring to. That was after I just about rubbed the ink off one stamp trying to feel the ribbing!

On some of the stamps I still can't see the ribbing, so that is still a mystery, but the majority I could detect it.
