Scott #65

Five Dollars Olive Green

Re-entry

Plate Position #10

Clear marks are found in the ‘P’ and ‘T’ of POSTAGE. There are also additional markings found in the central crown. The is the clearest re-entry I have seen to date on this high value Jubilee.

Michael D. Smith has just acquired a beautiful used copy of this re-entry and a full scan of it can be seen to the right.

Oct. 2010: Eastern Auctions Ltd has a right margin plate proof pair showing this re-entry on the right stamp, indicating that this re-entry is from the right column of the sheet of 50.

A scan of the pair is shown, along with a close-up of the full stamp. Note that besides the markings in the 'P' & 'T' of POSTAGE, the diagonal slash between the 'E' & 'D' of FIVE DOLLARS is also constant.

A Thanks to Tony Maresch, I now know the plate positions of both re-entries on the $5 Jubilee! This one is from pp10, the right stamp in the second row on the sheet of 50. Scroll down to see a scan from Tony's plate proof sheet of 50.

Scott #65

Five Dollars Olive Green

Re-entry

Plate Position #11

Clear marks of a re-entry are seen in ‘PO’ of POSTAGE, as well as the ‘IR’ of VIR.

I have now seen two identical copies of this re-entry, so I am certain of its constancy.

Thanks to Tony Maresch and his proof sheet of 50, now know the plate position of this re-entry. As you can see above, it is #11, the first stamp in the third row.

Scott #65

Five Dollars Olive Green

Re-entry

Plate Position #8

I was recently contacted by Gilles Morel who included scans of a $5 Jubilee he had just acquired which included a very interesting mark in the 'O' of POSTAGE. I had not noted this during my examination of the proof sheet so I went back to the 1200dpi scan for another look. Lo and behold, there it was in position 8! I think the light colour of the proof sheet was responsible for me missing it, so I have increased the contrast on the $5 proof scans, making the details more visible.

The shape of the mark in the 'O' clearly looks like that of a re-entry to me.

Thanks, Gilles, for bringing this to my attention!

I have seen another $5 with a slight shift to the left, especially noticeable in the middle ‘A’ of CANADA and the ‘P’ of POSTAGE. All of FIVE DOLLARS is slightly doubled as well, especially the ‘V.’ I do not have a scan of this one, though.
