Newfoundland Re-entries

Pence Issues 1857-1864

Very few re-entries exist on the Pence Issues of Newfoundland. Here are the ones that I am aware of at this time.


*1.

Scott #1

1d Brown Violet

Major Re-entry

Plate Position #25

Here is the re-entry that has been listed in the Unitrade Specialized Catalogue of Canadian Stamps for many years now. I would say this is a major re-entry rather than just a ‘re-entry’ as the catalogue does. Note the line through all of ‘NEWFOUND’ as well as both numeral boxes and the frame above the central crown.

Scott #15A & #1

1d Violet Brown  1861

Major  Re-entry

The Unitrade Specialized Catalogue of Canadian Stamps has long listed a major re-entry on the 1861 issue of the Newfoundland One Penny, but until now (Aug. 2005) I had never seen one.

A line of doubling can be seen through ‘NEWFOUN’ and in the upper left numeral box. A faint horizontal line matching the amount of the upper shift can also be found in the lower left numeral box.

Confirmation of this re-entry by a report of another identical copy would be appreciated.*

*CONFIRMED: Just today (August 29, 2006) I was outbid on a copy of this re-entry on eBay that was described as a die proof. There is a scan of this re-entry below the enlargements to the right. As you can see, the markings in the UL numeral box and NEWFOUND match exactly.

Scott #1

1d Brown Violet

Major Re-entry

Plate Position Unknown

This one was just submitted to me after posting the confirmation copy of the second major, found above. The most interesting areas are found on the right side - Note the marks in the margin next to the upper right corner numeral box, as well as the lower right numeral box. Also, the marks next to the lower right ‘1’ clearly indicate the remnants of another ‘1,’

While examination of any large pieces of this issue show the alignment of the entries was not at all precise, this one was obviously TOO far out of alignment to be satisfactory (or acceptable), and the first attempt was erased and re-entered in its present location, with these bits remaining visible.

A very nice item!

Scans were sent to me by Jean-Claude Vasseur of France.

Scott #1

1d Brown Violet

Re-entry

Plate Position Unknown

Here is the only other re-entry I have seen on the 1d. There are signs of re-entry in ‘St. John’s,’ particularly in the ‘T,’ ‘J,’ ‘N’ and ‘S.’ There is also a smudginess in the numeral box to the right that may or may not be a part of the doubling.

Scott #5, 12A & 19

5d Brown Violet

Major Re-entry (Fresh Entry)

Plate Position #34

Here is the re-entry that has been listed in the Unitrade Specialized Catalogue of Canadian Stamps for many years now...I had it included because it was listed as existing in Robson Lowe's "The Encyclopaedia of British Empire Postage Stamps - Part IV, Newfoundland & British Columbia." Up until now, I have never been able to confirm its existence. However, Tony Maresch recently provided me with a 1200dpi scan of a full sheet of 40 (8 X 5) of the FIVE  PENCE from his recent auction and I was FINALLY able to confirm the fact that there is indeed a nice re-entry in position #34 on the sheet.

I have provided a scan of the full sheet, as well as a closer view of position #34 (second from the left in the bottom row) with its surrounding positions showing how it is out of line (misplaced) with those around it.

I have then provided a close-up of the re-entry itself, along with an identical copy, but with the re-entry details pointed out with red arrows, for comparison.

Now the good news...With this new knowledge, I was able to spot a copy (with lower selvedge) on eBay and was successful in my bidding. This one is shown below the scans from the full sheet.

My measurements show the shift to be about 0.4mm, just short of the 0.5mm point of a misplaced entry. Therefore, this can be called a major re-entry.
