Default Stamp ID if possible

Hi, I'm curious about this stamp.
Is it a 1950s stamp?
Thanks!!

Appears to be a 60's stamp Kevin. You can measure the height of the stamp. To be a 3 dot Large Stamp from the mid 50's it would need to be 1-7/8" or so. 1.25"-1.50" range would be 60's.

Looks like the 1.5" tall version of the 60s stamp to me. My methods aren't 100% to tell all 1.5" 60s from 1.25" 60s unless you put a ruler next to it. But they are pretty good:

The 50s version with 3 dots in a triangle is fairly easy to distinguish from the 60s. Here is how I do it:
