QUESTION: Hello i became a new owner of Scott' American Album for United States. I had the whole collection for a year now.i noticed i have the HARDING MEMORIAL ISSUE - #610 the size is 19.25 by 22.25 and     the #613 size is 19.25 by 22.50. all i want to know is do i have the #613 or is it a #610. thank you.

ANSWER: Filmon,

The stamp on the right looks to me to be Scott 610.  I cannot see the stamp on the left clearly enough to make a determination.  If you could email a close-up of that stamp to usmints@cox.net I will be able to tell if it is Scott 610, 612, or a candidate for 613.

QUESTION: hi this filmon , i took a nicer picture of Harding stamp with a  i phone i hope its a lot better for u to look at .

Answer
Filmon,

The new photo is clearer and shows a sharp impression on the left stamp, which indicates the flat plate printing method.  My opinion is that the left stamp is also and example of Scott 610.
