This marvelous example of a siderographer’s mistake first came to my attention back in 1985. Over the years, it was mentioned in numerous articles in the literature (mainly BNA TOPICS) and was the subject of several articles by me in the newsletters of the Canadian Re-entry Study Group of BNAPS.

To read three of these articles, reprinted here without photos (see them below), click HERE.

This stamp was finally identified for its true self and plated by me in August of 1990, during a visit to the Postal Archives in Ottawa. It is exceedingly rare.

BREAKING NEWS: May 2003 ... A pair is discovered with BOTH stamps showing a 10¢ on 1¢ foreign entry!

Photo is of an issued stamp showing the right detail and centre detail.

Detail on the left is missing here, probably due to wear of the plate.

 


Detail on the right and centre are almost gone, as the plate continued to wear.

 

NOTE: This has since been determined to be from a different plate position than 1R82, as the line through the necklace is LOWER then on 1R82.

 

**See the note below for more information.
