There are many very interesting re-entries to be found on this lovely little stamp, many of which can be considered major.

I was extremely fortunate to be provided with a 1200dpi scan of a full Plate Proof sheet of 100, Courtesy of Tony Maresch, of R. Maresch & Son, Toronto,

and it is thanks to him that I am able to provide all 100 positions for you here. Some have re-entries and some don't, but the various guide dots and other markings should help you with the plating of your copies.

If you find these pages useful, you might drop Tony a note of thanks.


I have confirmed the positions I identify as being constant re-entries using an enlarged set of colour photocopies of a different proof sheet in my reference collection, Courtesy of Saskatoon Stamp Centre.


   

It appears the siderographer encountered some difficulty in the laying down of this plate. There are a number of 'typical' sharp re-entries to be found, along with one lovely misplaced entry, but there are also numerous examples that suggest either the dropping of the transfer roller onto the plate (many times), leaving some faint impressions in numerous letters, or, entries that were badly misplaced and necessitated their removal and re-entering in the proper positions, leaving remnants of the previous designs behind, showing in numerous parts of the lettering.


Of the 100 plate positions, I have identified 47 that are of interest to re-entry collectors. The other 53 may also provide guide dot information to platers.
