Save Time and Money – Get the 1855-57 Washington Look-Alikes Set Finding these early stamps and identifying the different types can be difficult.  But Mystic makes it easy with this convenient set.

Types or varieties occur when a stamp has differences that vary from the way it was originally intended to be printed.  These differences occur when the design is being transferred to the plate for printing or when lines are re-cut.

How to Identify the Washington Look-Alikes:

10¢ Green (Type II) – Bottom outer line is missing and both lower shells cut away.  Most common of the types.

3¢ Rose (Type I) – This stamp is nearly identical to the 3¢ imperforate.  At least two frame lines were re-cut on each plate, and one can generally be seen at the top or bottom.

3¢ Dull red (Type II) – On the imperforate plates, there was insufficient space for perforations, especially at the top and bottom.  Perforations cut into the frame lines, so new plates were produced.  The top and bottom frame lines were removed to allow more space for the perforations.

3¢ Dull red (Type IIa) – The side frame lines were re-cut on this variety.
