Page 3 Re-entries

 


There are a great many re-entries on the lower values of the Admiral Issue. Many of these are recorded and illustrated in George C. Marler’s masterwork, THE ADMIRAL ISSUE of CANADA, published by the American Philatelic Society in 1982. As wonderful a resource as this is, it was based mainly on examination of the Proof sheets held by the Postal Archives in Ottawa. It therefore does not take into account the many instances when the plates were re-entered, and thus a far greater number of re-entries exists than is covered by this book. It does, however, provide a fine foundation on which to base a collection of Admiral re-entries, as long as you realize you are likely to find many re-entries not included by Marler.

This first page includes Misplaced Entries along with Major Re-entries. The second page continues with Major Re-entries, while the third page is for  lesser Re-entries.

As I have mentioned elsewhere, I believe that for a re-entry to be considered 'major' it should show evidence of a strong shift and usually doubling of some of the lettering, as opposed to just framelines or bits of spandrels. A major does not necessarily have to show doubling of a large area of the design, but in many cases can just be confined to a narrow strip across the design. Many such examples will be found below.

A 'normal' or minor re-entry is usually the case when the transfer roll is a little 'out of alignment' or shewed, while a misplaced entry shows elements of design well away from their normal positions.

I would be grateful for 1200dpi scans of any other misplaced or really major items you may have for inclusion here.

1¢ Admiral Green

The Major Re-entry

Plate Position 12LR35

This gorgeous stamp is one of Canada’s best known re-entries. With a strong clockwise twist, doubling almost every element of the design, this stamp stands out as one of our finest. While the marvelous doubling of the lower right corner numeral box and ‘1’ is its most awesome feature, you should note also the doubling of the left ‘1’ and the letters of ONE CENT. Not to be forgotten, check out the ‘TAG’ of POSTAGE, particularly the delightful ‘twin peaks’ of the ‘A.’ Of course, the surrounding leaf elements and the portrait itself also exhibit fine examples of re-entry doubling.

This is a highly desireable stamp, and I shall always regret parting with my copy, seen second one down at the right, in order to make a computer upgrade several years ago. (I was desperate for a new Macintosh!)

Below the close-ups of the single stamp is a scan of a newly discovered dated pair with the re-entry on the left. Making it particularly interesting, and even more scarce (if that is indeed possible) is the fact that the circular date falls on the re-entry stamp. Few of the known copies of this stamp are dated. This is a North Bay duplex cancellation dated "DE 3 12".

This pair is courtesy of Eastern Auctions, with a nod to Leopold Beaudet for bringing it to my attention.

UPDATE: A mint block of 4 containing the major recently surfaced in Eastern Auctions February 22-23, 2013 sale! Scroll down to see this block.

 

As an aside, it has always been my contention that there are many copies of this major that have not yet been discovered due to the fact that they are all hiding out on the backs of picture postcards, which were so popular at the time of this stamp issue. Indeed, one of the copies known to me is on such a postcard. And we all know how postcard collectors don’t really care much about the backs of the cards or the stamps! So next time you see a pile of postcards at a dealer’s table, take some time to check out the backs...you just might be in for a wonderful find! And remember, you heard it here!

Major Misplaced Entry 1

Plate Position Unknown

Here we have a shift of a full 2.0 mm upwards of the entire misplaced design. Evidence abounds over the entire stamp, but the most obvious feature is the line through the bottom of ‘ONE’ which is actually the bottom frameline. Markings are found in both right and left maple leaves, including part of the ‘1’ in the large leaf on the left. Part of the portrait oval can be seen in the top margin.

This is by far the best example of a misplaced entry on the ONE CENT Admiral that I am aware of.

It was discovered by Dr. Warren Bosch many years ago, who found two copies, one sound (the upper photo) and the other with a piece missing due to careless handling of scissors. The latter resides in my collection. (See last photo.)

I have yet to hear of another - Bill Burden has foundanother copy! It is the first image shown here now! Thanks, Bill!

Major Re-entry 2

Plate Position  7UL6

This major exhibits a shift in the lower portion of the design, with lovely doubling of both 1’s, much of ONE CENT, the bottom frameline and right vertical frameline. All of the spandrel lines above the RNB are doubled into the white frame.

The plate position of this major re-entry was discovered by W.G. Burden of Eastern Auctions who found it in a lovely imprint strip of 4. Scroll down to see it.

I now have two single copies of this beauty, along with a copy of it on a postcard. (See below.)

Major Re-entry 12

This major is much more pronounced, with doubling in just about all of CANADA POSTAGE, as well as in the tops of both upper left and upper right spandrels, indicating an upwards shift. There are also signs of doubling in the inner and outer white ovals near the top of the lower left spandrel and to the right of the middle leaf.

Misplaced Entry 3

Plate Position Unknown

This stamp shows an interesting set of lines in the upper left corner extending from the tip of the crown out into the left margin. There is another line through the top of the 'P' of POSTAGE  which extends through the white portrait oval to the upper spandrel.

These are too exact to be tool marks and may be the result of a dropped transfer roll. I now have two copies to prove contancy.

This one is very subtle, with a vertical line in the 'C' of CANADA, as well as a vertical line out in the right margin on the opposite side. There are also extensions of lines into the white oval just below the 'E' of POSTAGE and further down opposite the upper leaf.

This may or may not be the result of a misplaced entry, or a dropped transfer roll.
