Scott #59 20¢ Vermilion

For the following section on the 20¢ vermilion, I want to express my gratitude to Gary J. Lyon of New Brunswick for scanning his full proof sheet of 50 for me. This allowed me to confirm the plate positions of two already known re-entries, putting to rest some disagreement on the matter, as well as plating two others. Below you will find scans of these positions taken directly from the proof sheet.

Scott #59

Twenty Cents Vermilion

Re-entry 1

Plate Position #37

This is the strongest re-entry on this stamp. Note the strongmarks in 'POS' and in the crown.

This stamp was originally discovered by Earl Noss.

Scott #59iii

Twenty Cents Vermilion

Re-entry 2

Plate Position #2

(Below 'O' of Imprint)

The heavy mark in the 'P' is the distinguishing feature here, but note also the extended lines in the portrait oval below the 'PO.'

Scott #59

Twenty Cents Vermilion

Re-entry 3

Plate Position #8

Another re-entry similar to the above one, but here the doubling is only in the ‘P’ instead of POS. Also, the re-entered lines in the right side of the crown are doubled themselves.

The second example is one that came into the Greene for certification, while the third copy was submitted shortly thereafter by Earl Noss. It’s nice to have confirmation of a second and third copy so quickly!

Scott #59

Twenty Cents Vermilion

Re-entry 5

Plate Position #28

A less obvious re-entry than the above, note the marks in 'POS' and below in the portrait oval, as well as the fine lines of doubling above 'TW' at the bottom.

I find it interesting that the marks on the proof sheet are much weaker than those on the printed stamp, seen below the proof.

Scott #59

Twenty Cents Vermilion

Possible Re-entry 6

Plate Position #39

A much less obvious mark is found in the right half of the central crown. Whether this is the result of re-entry is questionable.

Scott #59

Twenty Cents Vermilion

W-E Flaw

Plate Position #15

While it is clearly NOT a re-entry, I am including it here as a reference for those who are unsure of what this flaw looks like.

You should note that there are various states of this variety, with some being very heavy, while others, such as this example, are relatively thin and less extensive. More examples will be posted to show you the differences that can be found.
