I have 4 Washington 2¢ Type III Single Line Water Mark stamps from the 1894-95 Bureau series. I cannot find any of these stamps listed with a SINGLE Line Watermark. Can anyone help me with this?

Check out your scan of the backs - the single line watermark is visible there.

The single line watermark is what is confusing. All of this series is listed with Unwatermarked or Double Line Watermarked. I can't seem to find anywhere a Scott issue of (Red) Washington 2¢ Type III with this watermark

Sorry, my bad, I didn't read the original post very carefully. I thought you were trying to find the watermark on the stamp, not the stamp with the watermark!
PS I really suck at watermarks! Trust Webpaper below, he is much more likely to know what he is talking about. I usually farm my watermarks out to my local dealer, he is much better than me. When my wife was alive she did the watermarks, I did the colour shades and perfs.

Those are double line watermarks on your stamps. The illustrations below from the Scott Specialized catalog show the difference between the single line and the double line - the single line is smaller and usually more well defined than the double line.

The bottom 2 stamps are type 4.

Thanks. I should have caught the difference in the U of USPS. Also the hair line does show the 3rd and 4th stamps as type IV not type III. Went through about 150 of these stamps and guess I should have taken a little more time. Appreciate the help.
