DECIMAL (First Cents) ISSUE

Re-entries

Twelve & One Half Cents Victoria

The photographs below were taken from a full proof sheet of 100 belonging to John Jamieson of Saskatoon Stamp Centre. A total of 59 re-entries were found, most of which are very minor. There were a number of nice ones, though, including three of major proportions. I will start off with those, and add more of the lesser ones as time permits.

Scott #18

Twelve & One Half Cents Green

The Major Re-entry

Plate Position #94

Sharp doubling is found throughout the entire design of this major re-entry, including all lettering and the four corner numerals. The main distinguishing feature, when doing just a quick check, is the vertical line in the back of the 'E' of PENCE.

Scott #18

Twelve & One Half Cents Green

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position #61

This major re-entry is more subtle than the first, showing fainter doubling in many of the letters (note the triangle centres of the A's of CANADA). The main distinguishing features are the vertical line in the 'N' of PENCE, and the extension of the bottom tip of the '1' of the lower left '12' into the white margin between the frames.

Scott #18

Twelve & One Half Cents Green

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position #62

This is another major which is often confused with the first two shown above. Note the doubling in many of the letters, particularly CANADA and PENCE, as well as the lower left numeral.
