Page B - Scott #33 (Vermilion), #34 (Blue) and #39 (Blue Rouletted)

**2013** I recently had the opportunity to examine a 1200dpi scan of a full proof sheet of #33.

I located all of the re-entries below (and more) and was able to plate all of them.

Scott #39 / 34 / 33

3¢ Blue & Vermillion

A Major Misplaced Entry

Plate Position #55

This is a lovely misplaced entry discovered by W.G. Burden of Nova Scotia. Close examination of the photos shown here reveal clear evidence of a strongly misplaced design upwards and to the right.

A second copy of this stamp has recently been confirmed by Stephen Baker, who submitted the scan below the proof to the right.

It only took me 15 years, but I finally found a copy of this beauty for myself. Unfortunately, it has a missing corner.

I have since acquired a nicer, sound copy with a scarce '2' cancel.

An examination of a 1200dpi scan of a full proof sheet of 100 of Scott #33 allowed me to plate all of the re-entries on this stamp. Courtesy of Eastern Auctions Ltd.

The bottom of the design is sharply doubled on this stamp, with slight traces of doubling in the upper corners, the outer left and right vertical bars, and the left side of the background portrait lines.

Scott #39 / 34 / 33

3¢ Vermilion

A Major Re-entry - As above

Plate Position #45

The same design for Scott #39 was used previously for both Scott #33 & 34. Both of these issues were perforated. John Jamieson of Saskatoon Stamp Centre recently found this re-entry on a plated strip of plate proofs in the vermilion colour.

It is the left stamp in the pair shown to the right, and the bottom pair of the strip below.

Scott #39 / 34 / 33

3¢ Vermilion

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position #5

This is another major re-entry, though not as obvious as the above examples. Here there is doubling in the upper left '3', the 'THR' of THREE, and the 'EW' of NEWFOUNDLAND.  The entire bottom of the design is also doubled, along with 'squeezing' in the tops of THREE CENTS' and extensions into the white space at the bottom of the portrait.

I don't yet have a copy of this one on an issued stamp.
