I have an idea of what each stamp is but each one has something that I can't figure out. Starting with the 2 cent Washington. It is either Scott 406 or 358 but I can't find a watermark to identify it by so now I'm trying to decide if it's bluish or not. Washington is on the left of the two stamps on the back and you can see it is darker then the Webster but was wanting others opinions on if it's bluish or just darkened with age or something. The second stamp, 10 cent Webster, i believe is Scott 273 but when I was looking the bottom left corner I noticed the decoration of the 10 overlaps the inner circle. I attempted to get a picture using a microscope and you can see it definitely overlaps. All pictures online of 273 have the decoration not overlapping with the inner circle. Sorry if my questions are confusing and please feel free to ask for clarification.

I somehow managed to combine 2 CENTS 2 and TWO CENTS so please ignore my first question but still wondering about the 273.

The 10c is #226 -- no triangles in the upper corners.
