I just picked up an old A with what looks like the 50s small stamp, but it has the small center hole. Just curious about that transition date (range). Thx!

You're right in the transition period for that change, late 50's Small Stamps. I think it was '58ish when the change took place.

Just to tie a bow on it and confirm what you’ve said, this one is definitely an SSA. I’m charmed by the amount of variety in the grooves and ripples in this one, as well as several “inclusion” impurities.
