I am having trouble determining exactly what is the minor and major double transfer versus the regular stamp. The specialized catalog does not do a very good job pointing out exactly what the difference is. I have been collecting for several years and can figure most things out, but am baffled by this. I have two certified # 2875a's and they look just like #2875. Can someone please help me out? Thanks

Assuming the 'specialized' catalog you are using is a Scott's US Specialized version, in the examples shown for Major and Minor Double Transfer.... count the white lines at the bottom of the image.

In the Major, there are 3 white lines; in the Minor there are 2 white lines.

In the Minor, the line below the 'point' is virtually invisible.
