ONE CENT GREEN

Here are some wonderful Major Re-entries I have found on the 1¢ Numeral. If you enjoy these, don't miss my page on

Misplaced Entries on the 1¢ Numeral!

THE Major Re-entry

Plate Position Unknown

(but possibly from the left column, as seen by the wide margin on the stamp below)

This is the stamp most often recognized as 'THE' Major Re-entry on this stamp. While there is very strong doubling throughout the design, it is most noticeable in the lower left '1.' However, while it may look like the '1' is tilted to the left, that is just an optical illusion caused by the way in which the engraver 'dug out' the metal to create the '1' in the first place. A look at the doubled bottom framelines of both numeral boxes shows that they are level, and not tilted.

These appear to be very rare! Out of the many thousands of these that I have searched through, this is the only copy I have found.

Doubling can be found all over the design of the 1¢ Numeral and in many different combinations: one corner; two corners; upper half; lower half; upper left corner & lower right corner; upper right corner & lower left corner; and all sorts of mixtures in between.

However, some of the most striking re-entries on the 1¢, aside from the many misplaced entries covered elsewhere, exhibit doubling in the lettering of CANADA POSTAGE. As with most re-entries, there is that special 'something' about re-entries showing in lettering, as opposed to just framelines or spandrel lines. Here is a selection of re-entries, in no particular order, that show various amounts of doubling in CANADA POSTAGE. Many have doubling elsewhere, as well, but it is the lettering that makes these re-entries shine!
