Scott #62ii  1897

Discovery of Newfoundland

2¢ John Cabot

Major Re-entry

Plate Position #76

This surprising find shows sharp doubling of the entire lower portion of the design, including the lower left and lower right framelines, all of the lower lettering, both 2’s and their surrounding ornaments, and the bottom of the portrait...virtually everything below the level of Cabot’s eyes.

This is the first re-entry to be reported on this stamp (Sept. 2005) and creates hope that many more re-entries on this and other Newfoundland issues are still waiting to be found.

Please notify me of others you may know of for inclusion here.

March 2008 - Purchased and examined a full sheet of 100. Only this single re-entry was found on the entire sheet (Rats!) in pp76.

August 2010 - Purchased a Plate Proof block of 4 with the major re-entry in the lower right corner. I added this at the beginning here, as the proof details are SO crisp and clear!

If you look at its position in the block of four, you will see the impression of this stamp was entered lower than pp75 to its left; even when re-entered a little further upwards, the entire impression is still too low!

Scott #69  1897

Discovery of Newfoundland

12¢ Willow Ptarmigan

Major Misplaced Entry

There is clear evidence of an 8.0mm (!) misplaced entry showing as a band across the stamp to the left of the 'T' of TWELVE. At least 7 horizontal lines of the upper left corner design can be seen extending into the margin at the left, with one of the lines crossing the 'T' itself. There are also a number of tiny markings in the somewhat 'empty' space above the head of the large central bird, extending over almost to the neck of the upper bird. These markings are undoubtedly part of the letters of NEWFOUNDLAND. A couple of marks are also found in the scroll design on the right.

This may have been caused by a dropped transfer roll.

Scott #69P  1897

Discovery of Newfoundland

12¢ Willow Ptarmigan

Sharp Re-entry

There is a sharp re-entry in the lower left corner of the design which is particularly delightful in the '2' of 12.  There is also doubling in and around 1497, the LL corner of the numeral box, and even the 'A' of the bottom inscription.

Royal Family Issue1897-1901

Scott #72a   Proof

Colony Seal   30¢ Slate

Re-entry

This is the first re-entry I have seen reported on this stamp.  The details are quite subtle, but there nevertheless. Note the doubling of the upper right portion of the portrait oval; the horizontal lines to the right of the left ‘30’; the doubling of ‘GING’ of BRINGING; extensions of vertical lines in the upper-centre design between the dates; and a dash of doubling on the left in the white oval.

Royal Family Issue1897-1901

Scott #81-82

2¢ Orange and 2¢ Vermilion

King Edward VII

Misplaced Entry

Plate Position #1

This stamp shows a marked shift out into the right margin. Marks are also seen in the 'D.'

The late Bill MacDonald originally reported this stamp to me.  However, the scan to the right is from a block found by Earl Noss.

Courtesy of Earl Noss.

Earl just confirmed the plate position as being from position #1 on his full sheet of 100. Thanks Earl!

Royal Family Issue1897-1901

Scott #81-82

2¢ Orange and 2¢ Vermilion

King Edward VII

Major Re-entry

Plate Position #91

Bob Turkowski recently sent me a scan of a new re-entry he has found on this stamp and it is indeed a lovely one! Doubling is found in and above parts of NEWFOUNDLAND, particularly in the 'O' & 'DLAND.'

I immediately contacted my friend, Earl Noss, a frequent contributor to these pages, as I knew Earl owns a full sheet of 100 of this stamp. (He plated the misplaced entry shown above from his sheet.) Within a very short time, Earl had located this re-entry in the LL corner of his sheet in position 91. He quickly sent me a scan showing this stamp with full selvedge and proving the position, along with a close-up of the re-entry details. These scans are found below Bob's scan on the right.

Yet another nice item has been added to our list of Newfoundland re-entries!

Scott #83i

3¢ Queen Alexandra

Major Re-entry

Position Not Known

This re-entry was pictured in my Canadian Re-entry Study Group of BNAPS Newsletter back in 1994, but in black and white photocopies it did not show up well at all, so its existence has been questioned.

The stamp belonged to the late Bill MacDonald , who sent it to me to photograph at that time. I just now managed to find the photos and am pleased to present them here in Bill's memory. Unfortunately, I do not have a photo of the full stamp, so there may be other details not seen here.

While there is some evidence of doubling in the upper portion, the major doubling is found in the lower portion of the design. Both 3's show doubling, as well as the bottom frameline, but the strongest doubling is seen in all of THREE CENTS. Also note the double circle to the left of the 'T' and 'C' of THREE CENTS.

This is a delightful re-entry that reminds me of the one seen above on Sc. #62. This is the only example I have ever seen, although I've been looking for it for the past 16 years. Hopefully, another copy will surface now that collectors will know what to look for.

UPDATE: April 2013 - FINALLY acquired a second, confirming copy, Courtesy of Rob Armstrong! Many thanks, Rob!

Scott #85  1899

5¢ Duke of York

Major Misplaced Entry

Plate Position #1

This is another misplaced entry likely caused by a dropped transfer roll. Diagonal lines of the engraving on the Duke's jacket are found in and above some of the letters of 'POSTAGE' AND 'FIVE CENTS.'

I located this stamp in the upper left corner of the sheet of 100 in plate position #1 when I was able to examine a full sheet owned by John Jamieson of Saskatoon Stamp Centre a number of years ago. I have since obtained an upper left corner block of 15 (3 X 5) with full selvedge which also shows this misplaced entry.
