Serious students of the Two Cents Numeral now have a marvelous resource that will enable them to determine the plate that was used to print just about any 2¢ Numeral in their collection. Peter Spencer, of Ontario Canada, has just had his book, “Pretty in Pink: The Plates and States of the Canada 1898 Two Cent Numeral Issue,” published by BNAPS. It can be obtained from the BNAPS Book Department, c/o Ian Kimmerly Stamps, 112 Sparks Street, Ottawa, ON K1P 5B6 <http://www.iankimmerly.com>

TWO CENTS PURPLE & CARMINE


 

Scott #76

Two Cents Purple

The Major Re-entry

Plate 1, Left Pane,

Position #5

Re-entries on the 2¢ purple are rather scarce, particularly in comparison to the carmine issue, but this is a rather nice major re-entry. Doubling is found in the lower two-thirds of the design, including the 'CA' of CANADA, the 'E' of POSTAGE, much of TWO CENTS (especially the distinctive mark in the top of the 'E') and below, and both 2's.

The position was easy to determine, as it sits directly beneath OTTAWA of the upper imprint.

 

 



The Two Cents Carmine is an extremely complex issue. There are two different Dies, different papers, and numerous types that are beyond the scope of this site. However, there are also likely more re-entries to be found on this single value than any other Canadian stamp. To help give them some semblance of order, I have arranged them into 9 basic groups, starting with Misplaced Entries. I have given each example a 're-entry number' (R1, R2, etc.), with a misplaced entry number being followed by (M).
