Scott #195-200  1932


Return to Index     Return to Listings Page

There are only two re-entries on the Medallion Issue.  I would love to know of any more.

*Note that there are many copies that 'appear' to be re-entered at the top and bottom of the design, but are actually Shifted Transfers, not re-entries!

*See my Terminology page for an explanation of shifted transfers.

Scott #199  1932

5¢ Medallion

The Major Re-entry

Plate Position 1UL10

This is one of the better-known Canadian re-entries, as it has been catalogued for many years. Doubling is found in all of the letters of CANADA and in the white oval below. There is also doubling in the upper right crown, particularly on the right side. (See red arrow.) This is an important part of the re-entry, as you will see from the next description.

Scott #199

5¢ Medallion

The Retouched

Major Re-entry

Position 1UL10

Here is the actual retouched version of the Major Re-entry shown above. The doubling of the lettering of CANADA was corrected, as well as the doubling of the portrait oval lines. There ARE still signs of the re-entry, however, the main one being the line in the crown on the right side (see red arrow above), as well as the other doubled details of the corner design. Another more subtle sign is the size of the centre portion of the first 'A' of CANADA.

Scott #199

5¢ Medallion

The ‘Bluenose’ Re-entry

Plate Position 2UL79

This re-entry gets its ‘nickname’ from the fact that the shift resulted in a doubling of the horizontal lines on the King’s nose. There are also extensions of lines in the S.E. portion of the portrait oval.

Scott #199

5¢ Medallion

Another Minor Re-entry

When I first found this stamp I thought I finally had the Retouched Re-entry, that resulted from an attempt to correct the ‘Bluenose’ re-entry. However, a close examination of the photos will show that the two horizontal blue lines in the nose do not line up with any of the lines in the actual Bluenose. This, then, must be another more minor re-entry from a different plate position.
