It has taken many, many years for any re-entries to be reported on this value, certainly due to the light colour, but several have now been reported and are documented here.

Update: I have now examined a 1200dpi scan of a full sheet of 100 of Plate 16 and did not find a single re-entry, so all of those below must be somewhere on Plates 5, 6 or 15. (Thanks to Rob Taylor for his scan.)

Re-entry 1

Plate 5, 6 or 15

Position #82

FINALLY, we have the very first report of a re-entry on the 1¢ Jubilee! There are numerous marks to be found in CANADA POSTAGE, although those in POSTA are certainly the most interesting. Several marks in the central Crown also show indications of a nice shift in the design.

The colour of this stamp is likely the reason it has taken so long for this re-entry to come to light, and finding others may not be easy.

I am pleased to report that my old friend, Michael D. Smith, is the discoverer of this, our very first 1¢ Jubilee re-entry! He couldn’t wait to zip some scans off to me as soon as he found it.

Congrats, Michael! Lovely!

**NEW INFO:

Pierre Hudon discovered a lower left corner block of four of the 1¢ showing the re-entry in the UR stamp of the block and notified me of its position. Michael Smith recently purchased this block of 4 from Pierre with full corner selvedge, placing the re-entry at position #82 on the sheet of 100! There were only two plates used for this value, so the re-entry has been narrowed down to either Plate 5 or Plate 6, pp82. Scroll down to see a scan of this block that Michael immediately emailed to me.

Thank you, Pierre!

UPDATE: Sept. 2011 - Finally found a copy myself. See first image.
