There were 160 plates of 400 subjects each used to print the sheet stamps of the 2¢ carmine, and as a result there are 64,000 individual plate positions and a great many re-entries to be found. Indeed, there are a great many major re-entries. I consider a re-entry to be major on this particular issue if some of the letters of CANADA POSTAGE show doubling or areas in the white portrait oval above or below it do. Others exist in the lower portions, of course, but the ones showing doubling in the lettering are especially appealing. The stamps are not presented in any strict order here, so there are also some majors to found on the third page, along with the more usual doubled numeral box lines. I have not provided detailed descriptions in most cases, as they are usually quite obvious. If you have any questions about any, please feel free to email me and ask. I also welcome 1200dpi scans of major and strong re-entries you may have that are not shown here.

2¢ Admiral

Misplaced Entry 1

Plate Position 140LL31

(From the Hans Reiche collection)

This stamp was recorded by Marler as being on the proof sheet (p.274 #16, Figure II.80).

Sorry I don't have a scan of the full stamp to show here.  I photographed this stamp back in the early 90's with my 35mm close-up equipment which was not suited for full-stamp photography.

Note: July 2014 - Full stamp scan provided by Leo Beaudet. Thanks Leo!

I finally found a copy myself, though not nearly as nice as Leo's, but it's down below the close-ups.

Scott #106

2¢ Admiral

Misplaced Entry #2a

Plate Position 140LL80

This is a lovely example of a dropped roll, wherein the transfer roll was dropped or placed down on the plate, impressing a narrow band of detail across the design. We can see sharp evidence of this here in the white portrait oval to the right of the left two largest maple leaves, and also in the white oval to the left of the two largest maple leaves on the right.

This is the other stamp found on the proof sheet by Marler (stamp #17, page 274, Fig. II.81) that is extremely similar to the one shown below.

This is the stronger one of the two.

Misplaced Entry #2b

Plate Position 140UR7

This is another lovely example of a dropped roll, wherein the transfer roll was dropped or placed down on the plate, impressing a narrow band of detail across the design. We can see sharp evidence of this here in the white portrait oval to the right of the left two largest maple leaves, and lesser so in the white oval to the left of the two largest maple leaves on the right.

This stamp was found on the proof sheet by Marler (stamp #15, page 274), along with an extremely similar one in pp140LL80 (stamp #17, page 274, Fig. II.81).

Misplaced Entry #3

Plate Position 157UR92

The plate position of this stamp has been confirmed by Leopold Beaudet during n examination of the proof sheet in Ottawa. The position also explains the straight edge along the bottom.

My thanks to Leo Beaudet.

This one has numerous markings throughout the design, indicative of a misplaced entry. Note the marks in both numeral boxes, significant marks in TWO CENTS, the lower left portrait oval, and in and above 'CA', and below the 'C' in the white oval.

2¢ Admiral

Major Re-entry 13

This is a nice example of a counterclockwise twisted re-entry, showing the LR corner of the frame out in the margin, the bottom frameline angled downwards with marks in some of  TWO CENTS, and lines inside and outside the portrait oval at the low right side, as well as extended spandrel lines inside the margin at the lower to mid-right.

Major Re-entry 14

Note the doubling in the 'G' and inside the right frameline above it, as well as the extension of the upper right horizontal spandrel line into the white vertical spandrel space. The red mark in the lower right bottom margin is doubling of the bottom corner frameline, which is clearer in the second copy..

2¢ Admiral

Major Re-entry 27

This is an extremely delightful major re-entry, showing strong doubling on the entire left side of the design. The upper left crown and all of the horizontal spandrel lines are doubled, as are the lower left '2' and the maple leaves above it. This is the result of a clockwise twist of the transfer roll. Interestingly, none of the lettering appears to be affected!

There is also a characteristic break in the outer vertical line of the right numeral box.
