KING EDWARD VII ISSUE

Misplaced Entries

Two Cents Carmine


Regular viewers of these pages will notice a difference in my arrangement of my 2¢ Edward stamps. I have amassed a number of very nice misplaced entries on this issue over the years, so I decided to break my 2¢ page up into two separate pages: Misplaced Entries and Re-entries, ranging from Major to Minor. There are SO many of the latter, that I will only show a handful as examples, concentrating instead on the more extensive ones.

Misplaced entries exhibit details that are found to be significantly far enough from their normal positions to be extraordinary! These occurred when the transfer roll made contact with the plate far enough away as to be extremely noticeable, though some may be quite subtle in appearance. Others may be the result of what is called a ‘dropped transfer roll’ where the roll might make heavy enough contact with the plate to leave evidence of engraved details in a small area of the design where it doesn’t belong. Misplaced entry number 5 below is a fine example of a dropped transfer roll.

You will also note that in a number of cases I show multiple examples of some misplaced entries and re-entries. This because so many of them are used copies that have portions of the misplaced or re-entered details hidden by portions of the cancels. To help you view as many of the details as possible, I have included multiple copies, if I have them, so you can gain a fuller view of all of the doubled or misplaced details, to make it easier for you to identify your own stamps. This is also why I have included as many full-stamp images as I can, so you can see all of the areas of each stamp. I have had numerous requests over the years about stamps for which I only showed the main identifying feature, asking what the rest of the stamps looked like, as someone may have a stamp that appears similar to one I have shown, but their stamp also shows details in other areas of the stamp. Hopefully, this will better aid viewers in identifying their own stamps.

"... 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.

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, as well as the left border is partially seen in the outer margin.

Misplaced Entry 3

This is a misplaced entry showing evidence of a shift upwards in the top margin. Doubling is seen in all of the lettering in the portrait oval and in the lower left numeral box.

Most interesting, though, is the doubling of both ermine tails on the right side of the cape. there are also several horizontal lines crossing the white oval from the upper area of the left numeral box into the lettering band. These are seen at different strengths in the several copies shown.

Misplaced Entry 4

This misplaced entry is most noticeable in the lower portion of the design, with a vertical line in the lower left margin opposite the lower left numeral box and  multiple lines of doubling in most of TWO CENTS. There is also a portion of the top frameline doubled in the upper margin.

Misplaced Entry 5

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 does appear on a booklet copy, but whether this is actually one is not certain.

Misplaced Entry 6

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, touching the tie of the King’s cloak.

Misplaced Entry 7

I came across this photo of this stamp in my files. 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.

Near the end of 2016, I saw one of these in an eBay auction. Unfortunately, I was out-bid on it. If the buyer happens to see this, I would really like a full-stamp scan to include here.

I anyone has one they would like to sell, please contact me!

The following stamps show entries that are misplaced to the left, with numerous duplications of lines and curves out in the left margins, along with bits of evidence of shifting in other areas of the design.

Scott #90

Misplaced Entry 8

This is the first of a number of misplaced entries showing multiple lines out from the left vertical framelines. There may also be other areas showing various markings in portions of the designs. Some are more subtle than others.

It would be interesting to know if these all occurred on the same plate and even if they are in the same column.

Misplaced Entry 9

Here is a strong example of the above-mentioned doubled framelines in the left outer margin, though this one also has a strong guide dot at left-centre. There are also nice extensions of the lines above the ‘C’ of CANADA and the upper lines of the upper portion of the lower left spandrel into the white oval to their left.

And another, though this one also shows signs of marks inside the upper right outer frameline, as well as marks in and below the lower left numeral box, as well as markings in the bottom margin with a line up into the ‘C’ of CENTS.

This example also shows the heavy red ‘blotch’ on the King’s cheek! This is a known variety.

If anyone has any different examples of this type of left margin misplacement, please send me 1200dpi scans of the full stamp and I will include them here.
