I am very excited about jioning as I have a few other stamps I would like to show u all and may find out a bit more about them. And thankyou for the information about the stamp. My collection was originally half my grandfather's (Danish) and half my stepfather's who was born in a concentration camp u see one of the german soldiers fell in love with his mother and hid them so I have some interesting german stamps from his part of the collection both now deceased)

re: Ireland: My Scott 68b

Thanks for posting the picture of the stamp. It is definitely not a Scott #68b.

Depending on the watermark, it is either a Scott #68 or a Scott #109. Both are common stamps.

re: Ireland: My Scott 68b

I came across this thread working on the Indexing Project so I thought I'd add a scan of what I believe is a genuine 68b from my collection;

You all are so good with identification. I am trying to learn but the only difference I see in the 2 are the perfs. Are there more? Perfs might not even be the right word. One is a coil the other not.

re: Ireland: My Scott 68b

Yup - you're 100% absolutely right! Although they could have different watermarks, but the coil was only issued in one watermark type.

And we aren't born knowing this stuff - we all learn it bit by bit. I've found that narrowing the scope of my collection by specializing has really allowed me to study much more in depth.

re: Ireland: My Scott 68b

Hi Everyone;

Did anyone notice that Kat has not been back since March 2013? Thinking

I sent a PM to her to see if she would be interested in returning or has no further interests here.
I'll pass on whatever I hear from her. Wave

Just wonderin'....

re: Ireland: My Scott 68b

The only problem with getting a cert on specialist material is that you would want to get the one that is widely accepted for that stamp. My guess would be an R.P.S. cert but hopefully someone will chime in. I know that some British dealers will not accept an APS cert for oddball British stamps and would think the same would be true for Irish stamps.

The one sold at the Kelleher Auction of Specialized Irish material had an R.P.S. cert.
