A Penny Red I recently purchased lettered (AF). I measured and put the numbers in on this site, came back a exact match to plate 200 a13- b3+ c3- d4+
Then i went to the registration sheet it was missing, so I went to the imprimatur project site, found a copy.
Only to find position (d) to be way out it shows it,s 2 or even 2- some 8 positions different to the book, and my stamp (d4+)
My stamp has the perfect east side and the north west 6 o clock ray flaw.
After pulling up images of all the (AF) stamps with the 6 o clock ray flaw (plates 198 to 201) my stamp seems to fit plate 199.
The only thing is my stamp is imperf and nowhere can i find this plate 199 had any imperf sheets?
Any ideas please ?

I have no copies from Plate 200, but one (not AF) from Plate 199 - perforated. So far I can find no reference anywhere to imperforate copies from either plate.

under gibbons book for sg17/18 (C1k) it states imperfs known of plates 200 and 203 but i have not found any for 199.
Only thing that comes to mind is has someone used a imprimatur from the original sheet on a letter, possible i suppose.

Yes, I missed the reference in Gibbons to Plates 200 & 203 - was concentrating on 199 I suppose ;)
