Publicity Issue 1928

Scott #145

1¢ Map of Newfoundland

The 'Normal' Stamp

THIS is an amazing stamp for re-entries! One of my goals is to find a complete sheet of 100 of this stamp in order to study the many, many re-entries there are to be found. If you have never looked for re-entries on this stamp, do so! You won't be disappointed!

While doubling can be found in most areas of the design, including framelines, numerals, main title, map wording and shorelines, the easiest place to look first is at the lettering of 'NEWFOUNDLAND LABRADOR' on the mainland. As you will see in the numerous examples to follow, delightful doubling of these letters can be found, shifted either upwards or downwards.

The first stamp shown below is a NORMAL copy, without re-entry. The purpose of this is to familiarize you with what the normal, unre-entered design looks like. This will make it much easier for you to distinguish the doubled shorelines and lettering to come. And indeed, there is a spectacular Misplaced Entry of a full 2.0 mm to be found in one of the stamps below. ENJOY!

A Major Misplaced Entry

Plate Position #60

Here we have the 'ultimate' of shifts on this stamp! There is very clear evidence of an entry misplaced upwards by a FULL 2.0 mm. It is the most distinctive in the doubling of 'NEWFOUNDLAND LABRADOR' where you can actually see OUND & LABRADOR *above* the word NEWFOUNDLAND! Misplaced details are also seen in NEWFOUNDLAND at the bottom.

Believe me, it was a real thrill finding this beauty!

NOTE: This just in (Feb.27/07)...Jean-Claude Vasseur of France, a regular correspondent with me on this issue, has just acquired another large plate piece of this stamp that not only allows him to conclude that this plate was indeed re-entered, and that most of these re-entries did not occur on the original state of the plate, but that this marvelous misplaced entry is found in position #60 on the plate.

1¢ Map of Newfoundland

A Major Re-entry

Position #12, State 2

This stamp is somewhat typical of the many re-entries that can be found on this issue. Doubling downwards can be seen in the Eastern shoreline of the mainland; in NEWFOUNDLAND LABRADOR; in NEWFOUNDLAND on the island; of the lower frameline; and in the scroll and the 'N' in the lower left corner.

1¢ Map of Newfoundland

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position #7

This stamp is an example of an upwards shift in design. Note the doubling this time above 'NEWFOUNDLAND LABRADOR' and 'NEWFOUNDLAND' on the island; as well as doubling of the dotted border above the word 'QUEBEC.' The lower left corner of the island itself is also clearly doubled.

My thanks to Jean-Claude Vasseur for providing the plate position.

Scott #145

1¢ Map of Newfoundland

A Major Re-entry

Position #10, State 3

This stamp is an example of a heavier downwards shift. Note that more lettering appears to be doubled, including 'BATTLE HARBOUR,' 'QUEBEC,' and 'GLUF OF ST. LAWRENCE.' The line of latitude just to the right of LABRADOR is doubled. Doubling can also be seen in the tops of all the letters of NEWFOUNDLAND at the bottom of the stamp. The lower frameline is also doubled.


*9

Scott #145

1¢ Map of Newfoundland

A Major Double Re-entry

This stamp is an example of a double re-entry. That is, there is clear evidence of an upwards AND a downwards shift. Note the framelines at the top and bottom. At the top we see evidence of an upwards shift, while at the bottom we see a downwards shift.

 


*10

Scott #145

1¢ Map of Newfoundland

A Major Re-entry

Position #96, State Unknown

This stamp shows another downwards shift, but this time it is so strongly shifted that we also see doubling out in the letters of 'ATLANTIC OCEAN.' You can also see doubling of the inner outline of the map and letters on the mainland.

15¢ First Nonstop Transatlantic Flight

Major Re-entry

This is a lovely major re-entry that was discovered by the late Bill Macdonald of Saskatoon. Doubling is found throughout the design, but is most obvious in the 5's of both 15's in the lower corners.

I am still searching for a copy of this re-entry. If anyone has a copy they would be willing to sell or trade, please let me know.

15¢ First Nonstop Transatlantic Flight

Major Re-entry

This lovely re-entry, only the second one I have seen on this issue, turned up on eBay recently and I just had to have it. Notice the very sharp, clear doubling in the lower right corner, including the LR '15' and its surrounding ornaments, as well as the adjacent lettering and lines.

Scott #160

3¢ on 6¢ Surcharge

Major Re-entry

Position 16 of 25

This is the strongest re-entry I have seen on this issue. Note the strong doubling of much of the left side, particularly to the left of the THREE overprint. The lower portion of the scroll ornament is doubled to the right, as well as the outer frameline, which is seen inside the column on the left.

Two scans, one with red arrows and one without, point out the significant areas.

Note there is also a little doubling seen in the NEW of NEWFOUNDLAND.

3¢ on 6¢ Surcharge

Major Re-entry

Position 6 of 15

This is another major re-entry extremely similar to the one above, but the marks in the lower part of the scroll ornament are slightly different.

You will need to compare this one to the above to detect the differences.

3¢ on 6¢ Surcharge

Re-entry?

I am uncertain as to whether this is a re-entry or not, but it IS constant. Notice the strong slash in the N of NEWFOUNDLAND and the mark in the upper left margin.
