5p1L "Lobster" plate variety

Looks like there is only one of these in the plate, and because it shares a scratch upper rite with a more common variety of the same era, it is possible that this is a very late state of the plate. The watermark looks like the 1L3, with square RA.

It has the following flaws

Period upper left edge

Small scratch below 'REPUBLICA'

The scratch it shares with a more common plate variety

And another scratch, this one in the background...truly a great plate variety
