Scott 528 var, 2 Type Va, Plate Number 11333 T with manuscript initials

Beginning with plate 11329 in May 1920, initials began to reappear on Washington-Franklin issues.  Initials had previously appeared only on flat plat printings, but Otto A. Myers (OAM) inscribed his initials directly above the left top plate number of several offset plates.  Through July 1920, various printers' initials were intermittently inscribed on 30 or more different plates that were used to produce Scott 528 and 528A (perforated) and 534 (imperforate).
