Re-entries

Scott #145

The Newfoundland Map Stamp


THIS is an amazing stamp for re-entries! One of my goals is to find a complete sheet of 100 of this stamp in order to study the many, many re-entries there are to be found. If you have never looked for re-entries on this stamp, do so! You won't be disappointed!

While doubling can be found in most areas of the design, including framelines, numerals, main title, map wording and shorelines, the easiest place to look first is at the lettering of 'NEWFOUNDLAND LABRADOR' on the mainland. As you will see in the numerous examples to follow, delightful doubling of these letters can be found, shifted either upwards or downwards. And indeed, there is a spectacular Misplaced Entry of a full 2.0 mm to be found in one of the stamps below.

Mr. Jean-Claude Vasseur of France has undertaken a detailed study of this stamp and has determined that there are several different states of the plate. He has contributed greatly to the plate positions given below.

The 'Normal' Stamp

The first stamp shown below is a NORMAL copy, without re-entry. The purpose of this is to familiarize you with what the normal, unre-entered design looks like. This will make it much easier for you to distinguish the doubled shorelines and lettering to come. (Disregard the slight upward smearing of the ink.)

A Major Misplaced Entry

Plate Position #60

Here we have the 'ultimate' of shifts on this stamp! There is very clear evidence of an entry misplaced upwards by a FULL 2.0 mm. It is the most distinctive in the doubling of 'NEWFOUNDLAND LABRADOR' where you can actually see OUND & LABRADOR *above* the word NEWFOUNDLAND! Misplaced details are also seen in NEWFOUNDLAND at the bottom.

Believe me, it was a real thrill finding this beauty!

NOTE: This just in (Feb.27/07)...Jean-Claude Vasseur of France, a regular correspondent with me on this issue, has just acquired another large plate piece of this stamp that not only allows him to conclude that this plate was indeed re-entered, and that most of these re-entries did not occur on the original state of the plate, but that this marvelous misplaced entry is found in position #60 on the plate.

A Major Re-entry

Position #12, State 2

This stamp is somewhat typical of the many re-entries that can be found on this issue. Doubling downwards can be seen in the Eastern shoreline of the mainland; in NEWFOUNDLAND LABRADOR; in NEWFOUNDLAND on the island; of the lower frameline; and in the scroll and the 'N' in the lower left corner.

A Major Re-entry

Plate Position #7

This stamp is an example of an upwards shift in design. Note the doubling this time above 'NEWFOUNDLAND LABRADOR' and 'NEWFOUNDLAND' on the island; as well as doubling of the dotted border above the word 'QUEBEC.' The lower left corner of the island itself is also clearly doubled.

My thanks to Jean-Claude Vasseur for providing the plate position.

A Major Re-entry

Position #10, State 3

This stamp is an example of a heavier downwards shift. Note that more lettering appears to be doubled, including 'BATTLE HARBOUR,' 'QUEBEC,' and 'GLUF OF ST. LAWRENCE.' The line of latitude just to the right of LABRADOR is doubled. Doubling can also be seen in the tops of all the letters of NEWFOUNDLAND at the bottom of the stamp. The lower frameline is also doubled.

1¢ Map of Newfoundland

A Major Double Re-entry

This stamp is an example of a double re-entry. That is, there is clear evidence of an upwards AND a downwards shift. Note the framelines at the top and bottom. At the top we see evidence of an upwards shift, while at the bottom we see a downwards shift.

1¢ Map of Newfoundland

A Major Re-entry

Position #96, State Unknown

This stamp shows another downwards shift, but this time it is so strongly shifted that we also see doubling out in the letters of 'ATLANTIC OCEAN.' You can also see doubling of the inner outline of the map and letters on the mainland.
