Scott #108 Brown

3¢ Admiral

A Misplaced Entry 1

Scott #108 Brown

3¢ Admiral

A Misplaced Entry 2

Plate Position Unknown

This stamp is extremely similar to the one above, but the position of the details is slightly different and fainter. Note the higher line in the ‘N’ of CENTS.

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

Misplaced Entry

Plate Position Unknown

This is a most interesting stamp, with odd-looking details found only in and above the ‘AD’ of CANADA. They do not appear to be random scratches, but rather like engraved details. Indeed, the first time I saw these on the screen at 50X, the first thing that came to my mind was an ermine tail from the cape of King Edward VII. But to suggest THAT would be a little TOO far-out!

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position 6UR88

(From the Hans Reiche collection)


*4

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position

This is another nice re-entry, showing doubling in the ‘N’ of CANADA. The marks in the white oval above ‘NA’ look more like engraved details, than smeared ink or splashes.


*5

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position

This is a major re-entry showing doubling across the design, through the ‘A’ of CANADA and in and below the ‘AG’ of POSTAGE.

 


*6

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position

This is another nice major showing in and above the ‘CA’ and to the left of the outer frameline, as well as below the ‘GET’ on the right.

 


*7

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position

This re-entry shows in and below the ‘CA’ and in the ‘E’ on the right. There is also an interesting bulge on the outer right frameline opposite the ‘GE.’


 

*8

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Major Re-entry

*10

*11

Scott #108

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position

This shows doubling in and above the ‘CA,’ but nothing on the right side.


 

*12

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position

This is a more ‘typical’ type of re-entry, showing a strong doubling of the LNB (left numeral box), the 3, the maple leaf above, and the ‘T’ of THREE.

 


 

*13

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Strong Re-entry

This stamp shows doubling in the top of the ‘A,’ while the curved line through the centre of the ‘A’ is likely an inked paper fibre.

 


 

*14

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Strong Re-entry

This stamp shows doubling of the right leg of the ‘A.’

 

 

*15

Scott #108 Brown

3¢ Admiral

A Strong Re-entry

This stamp shows the bottom portion of the design completely doubled, including both 3’s, both numeral boxes, inner and outer bottom framelines, and all of THREE CENTS.

Following Paul’s submission, I found two copies of this same re-entry in my own collection and have provided three close-up scans of the bottom of the design.

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

A Strong Re-entry

This stamp shows sharp doubling of the entrie bottom frameline.

 


 

*17

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

Re-entry

This stamp shows doubling of the left vertical line of the LNB. It may well be a slipped retouch, rather than a re-entry.

 
*18

Scott #108

3¢ Admiral Brown

Retouch

This stamp shows what is unquestionably a curved retouch of the left inner vertical frameline. There also some interesting marks around the 3 that might indicate re-entry.

Vertical String of Dots - HERE

This is an odd gathering of varieties. In the vertical white space between the upper left outer frameline and the inner upper left spandrel, there are strings of dots to be found. They are definitely engraved and the number and position of the dots varies. They resemble a column of marching ants! Cause is uncertain. Perhaps they are a result of some sort of transfer roll/re-entry, or possibly a result of retouch - a ‘skipping’ sort of retouch.

Hans Reiche mentions such a variety in his book, CANADA Steel Engraved Constant Plate Varieties, page 35, #108-4, “Fine vertical dashes between left frame and shading lines.”

I have never seen anything quite like this before, and so I am including them here. Any further information would be appreciated.
