January 2015 - I recently acquired a 1200dpi scan of a full sheet of 100 of the Six Cents Red Brown Small Queen, Scott #43. Since there are many collectors who delight in plating these stamps based on their position dots, I decided that rather than just showing the re-entries I found on the plate, I would show all 100 plate positions to allow platers to really enjoy themselves. The images you see below are actually thumbnails that have been re-sized to my usual 12” wide images, so if you click on each image, you will be taken to a full size image which may fill your screen. This will allow you to do really close-up examinations of each and every position on the plate. I have included portions of the stamps to the left and to the right of each plate position to show the relative alignments of each design, as well as the position dots to the right of each stamp. I have made note for the positions that show evidence of re-entry and also associated Reiche & Sendbuehler numbers. (Coming soon.)

NOTE: Since this sheet is from the re-entered state of the plate (it has the backwards R in the upper margin), it can be assumed that virtually every position on the plate may have received a re-entry to strengthen worn details. This has resulted in a great many of the entries having a ‘squeezed’ appearance at the top, with the result that most lack the normal space at the top of the design above ‘DA POS’. While some of the entries do show the normal space with a fine frameline above, most appear to have a solid band of colour at top-centre. I have not noted these specifically as ‘re-entries’ even though they are, as there are just too many of them. The ones I have mentioned show at least some more obvious distortion of some of the lettering, in particular, ‘DA POSTAGE’, or parts thereof. I do hope you will find these pages of use.

My sincere thanks to THE BRIGHAM COLLECTION
