re: R164 Var.

What are you asking for? If you are wanting an opinion about a plate or catalogue number, what do you think it is to give us a starting point. If you want an opinion about how the stamp looks....

I have always liked the Battleship revenue series (both of them). I especially like it when they have a light cancel so that the ship shows nicely. Very nice centering really frames the engraving like the work of art that it is.

re: R164 Var.

It looks like there is a scratch running from the left side diagonally to the top. Is this the vairiety?

re: R164 Var.

@Vinman Thanks I agree.

@Michael, sorry I don't understand what you said "about a plate or catalogue number", I've already listed the catalogue number, do you think it's another catalogue number? What plate number are you referring to?

re: R164 Var.

Not plate number, but a specific printing plate, if there is one.

@Michael, very sorry you have me confused (easy to do) I thought a plate number and a specific printing plate are one and the same.

re: R164 Var.

The confusion is caused by your presenting this as a "guessing game". i.e. "study my stamp and find the variety".

Few of us have the time or inclination for that.

If you wanted actual discussion of the variety, it should have been presented like this:

Plate varieties aren't my thing, so I will abstain from comment, but maybe now those who are interested in such things will comment on the probable cause, now that they don't have to find it first.

BTW, obvious as the scratch is to me now, I would not have noticed it without the clue from vinman.

re: R164 Var.

I'm by no means an expert, but... It really doesn't look like a cracked plate to me. It seems too regular and it stops and than continues. It doesn't really look like a colour shift either. I can't imagine it as an engraving error either because of the regular nature of it. Is there any way that a fold in the paper could cause something like this, you'd think it would continue. In other words, I have no idea. But I bet someone out there can tell you!!

re: R164 Var.

This plate var. I thought was large enough and arrows would not be required, but maybe I was wrong.

How many members could not find this plate var. without the arrows?

I'll admit, I saw the "error" right away, I'm just not sure what caused it!!!

re: R164 Var.

Something like that is so typical for stamps of that era. I never noticed it myself, thinking the plate flaw was something else.

It's nice to not have to guess what the OP is trying to find more info on.

"How many members could not find this plate var. without the arrows?"

Hardly the point.

The fact is you confused 3 very knowledgable collector/dealers

Michael - a moderator of this forum and a dealer since the late 70's/early 80's,

Vince - an advanced collector of fancy cancels and auxiliary markings who belongs to the following organizations: US Cancellation Club, Fire Service In Philately, The Classics Society, Pennsylvania Postal History Society, The Peninsular State Philatelic Society, The Greater Philadelphia Stamp And Collectors Club, The Auxiliary Markings Club

Roy who makes a living as a stamp dealer and provided us with the use of his server for many years so we could have a club.

All 3 asked you to explain what you were looking for.

re: R164 Var.



I'll try this again.

I guess I'm an old time collector, who actually examine stamps. It's true stamp collecting back in the 1950s was way different then it is today, we did not have computer, scanners, etc. and etc. Anyway I learned what it takes and promise to always add arrows and description text when necessary and to use Pick Up Points (PUPs).

So now is this what is needed???
