 "... the most interesting re-entry of the Edward issue."

On page 123 of his classic work, THE EDWARD VII ISSUE OF CANADA, 1975, The National Postal Museum, George C. Marler wrote,

"Some time later the author had the opportunity of again examining the same proofs and found that he had overlooked earlier what must be regarded as the most interesting re-entry of the Edward issue. (Figure 2.35)

In it the King's beard and the collar of his uniform are doubled and the lines of this second entry appear nearly 2.5 mm below their normal position on the vignette. The point of the beard shows below the first ermine tail of the cape, other lines of the beard may be noticed below the collar, three lines of the collar appear within the circle of the knot fastening the cape and two or three other lines of the left side of the collar run diagonally upward from the third ermine tail. These elements are not as easy to spot, however, as (i) the horizontal lines of the oval band of which the ends are in line with the vertical line of the lower left spandrel; (ii) the 7 or 8 horizontal lines running across leaf 1, two of which continue through the white band and invade the T of TWO; (iii) the 3 other lines in the white band which seem to be extensions of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th lines above leaf 1; or (iv) the 2 lines and a dot above the S of CENTS. There is a bulge inward of the frame opposite leaf 1.

This re-entry is 86UL93."

The photos seen below were taken by me in 1990 at the Postal Archives in Ottawa. They are, of course, of the same proof sheet that Mr. Marler had examined while working on his book. Unfortunately, Mr. Marler passed away before I discovered the incredible Major Misplaced Entry on the 5¢ Edward showing the lower left 5 in the upper left crown, 3R79. I'm sure he would have loved that one as well, and would likely not argue that it is even more spectacular than this one.

*** July 4, 2014 *** After almost 40 years, I FINALLY have a copy of this rarity in my collection!!! I acquired it in a recent auction by R. Maresch & Son and I am THRILLED to actually own one! Scroll down below the photos I took from the plate proof in Ottawa back in 1990.

Scott #90

Misplaced Entry 2

This is a nice misplaced entry showing a 0.5 mm shift to the left and slightly upwards. The nicest detail is in the left numeral box and the second leaf, while beautiful doubling is found in almost all of the lettering. The top left margin also shows the upper frameline doubled above it.

July 2014: Added a much nicer-looking copy, seen to the right.

Scott #90

Misplaced Entry 3

This is either a major re-entry, or a misplaced entry. A strong upwards shift is visible, resulting in doubling of the top frameline and most of the letters of CANADA POSTAGE.

Misplaced Entry 4

Position 86LL67

The next three stamps show strong shifted entries to the left, with sharp doubling of the left framelines visible in the margins.

Scott #90b Booklet

Misplaced Entry 7

Dropped Transfer Roll

The extent of this misplaced entry is very limited and I suspect it may be the result of a dropped transfer roll. The only details visible are the marks in the portrait oval below the third ermine tail (above the space between the 'E' and 'N' of CENTS), and the 'N' itself. Fortunately, this is an extremely clear printing.

Dr. Michael Sendbuehler reports that this variety also appears on the booklet stamp.

Note: I neglected to mention that my stamp here has a straight edge at the top...it is uneven, so I wasn't sure if it was a trimmed copy or booklet copy. Dr. Sendbuehler's comment above confirms that it is a booklet copy.

Added a full stamp scan, Aug.17/14.

Misplaced Entry 8

I came across this photo of this stamp recently. I wish I could show you the whole stamp, but this corner is all I have.

You can see the left frameline doubled well out into the left margin, but the main feature is the group of dots in the bottom margin. These are obviously from the oval containing the lettering above. I have never seen anything quite like this before.

Misplaced Entry 11

This is a subtle, but strong misplaced entry. Note the mark above the left 2, the vertical marks in the maple leaf above the 2, and marks in TWO.  The most interesting feature, though, are the two horizontal lines to the upper right of the 'O' of TWO.

Major Triple Entry 7

This is something not often seen...It is a position that was re-entered twice, with both re-entries being out of alignment. The bottom line of the numeral box is clearly tripled, as is the 2 itself.

Scott #90

Major Re-entry 8

This major re-entry shows a strong upwards shift, resulting in doubling of both 2's, heavy marks in leaves 1, 3 & 4, marks in the portrait oval above the lower left spandrel and to the LL of the 'C', much of TWO CENTS, and the bottom frameline in the lower left corner.

Major Cracked Plate

Okay, I know this is not a re-entry, but it is so spectacular I just had to include it here. While many issues show hairlines from cracked plates, this one is the nicest I have seen.
