This particular example caught my eye. At first glance, I thought that this might be a framed example of the type 90a, as the top part of a margin outline is marked on the host adhesive. However, I don't think that this is a framed variety version,. More likely, the edging effect had been produced by a rolling action in the stamping causing the inking at the top edge of the chop to be registered on the adhesive. This is the first time I have seen such a "framed" margin mark on the Group I - Meyer & Co security marking types, which normally appears as unframed.   Frank Drake.
