Misplaced & Re-entered Imprints

 


Not only did the siderographers have the ‘odd’ problem entering stamp images on the steel plates, but they also had similar troubles with the entering of the Imprints that appeared in the margins on most plates. What follows are some fascinating examples of these re-entered imprints.

There are many more of these in existence and I would be pleased to receive 1200dpi scans for this page!

Scott #104

1¢ Admiral Green

Major Misplaced Imprint

Plate 24 (Type A1)

Here is a lovely, strongly misplaced entry visible above the 'O' of OTTAWA and in the '2' of 24. Another number or letter was punched in where the '2' was supposed to go, perhaps partially erased, and the '2' added on top of it. I'm not certain just what the 'extra' letter or number is, perhaps an 'X'?

Scott #104

1¢ Green Admiral

Major Misplaced Imprint

Plate A135

Here is a lovely misplaced entry visible from just after the first 'T' of OTTAWA through to the end of the plate number.

Note that while the OTTAWA-No A was entered using a transfer roll, the digits 135 were manually punched in by hand. The original hand punched digits were also misplaced, partially removed, and entered again.

2¢ Admiral

Major Misplaced Imprint

Plate 2 Upper

Here we have an incredible misplaced imprint that was originally entered a full 2.5 cm to the right. It was then erased and re-entered in the proper position.

This block is also the very scarce 'Pink' shade from Plate 2, Sc. 106b, from 1911-12.
