Scott #201-336   1933-1953


  Re-entries following the Medallion Issue are on the whole much more subtle than previous eras. This can be largely attributed to advances in technology. The strongest re-entry of this period has to be the Major Re-entry on Scott #226, the 50¢ Parliament Buildings of 1935. Everything else seen so far is generally much more minor.

Scott #218  1935

Geo V Pictorial Issue

Re-entry

While certainly not significant, this delightful little re-entry shows sharp doubling of the curved line within the scroll at right-centre, along with several veins of the leaf below it, the border of the portrait oval to the left of it, and the bottom of the portrait oval itself, including some of the diagonal lines below the King's medals.

This stamp was in the collection of Hans Reiche when photographed.

Scott #219  1935

Geo V Pictorial Issue

Re-entry

While torn between the certainty as to whether this is a re-entry or a slip print, I am including it here in the hope that another identical copy will turn up to confirm it as a re-entry. I have searched through many, many hundreds of these stamps, and while I have yet to find a second copy, I never came across another slip print either. Yes, it is somewhat blurry, but there is just something about it that says 're-entry' to me.

Anyone else have one of these???

Scott #226  1935

50¢ Parliament, Victoria B.C.

The Major Re-entry

Plate 1, LR Pane, Position #25

This is the well-known Major Re-entry on the 1935 50¢ Parliament. Sharp doubling can be seen in the oval above CANADA and in the bottoms of 'ANAD.' Often overlooked is the doubling found near the bottom of the design above CENTS.

This re-entry is usually regarded as the 'last' of the majors. The re-entries that followed for years to come are quite minor in comparison, although I would say the doubling of POSTAGE on the 6¢ Pearson booklet stamp is now a true rival.

Scott #226  1935

50¢ Parliament, Victoria B.C.

Minor Re-entry

While most collectors know about the Major Re-entry on this issue, many are not aware of the minor ones that exist as well. On this one, almost the entire left edge of the design is slightly doubled, including the 'P' of POSTES and the inner edge of the curved white bar at left-centre.

  Scott #275

4¢ Citizenship 1947

Minor Re-entry

Hans Reiche in his variety handbooks as far back as 1951 (Canada's Major & Minor Varieties From 1897 Up) listed a stamp showing 'partial doubling of stamp'; 1982 (Canada Steel Engraved Constant Plate Varieties) "Re-entry, doubling below all letters of CITIZEN, CITOYEN, CANADA & 4 Cents." Each book gave the plate as Plate 1 UL Pane. In Hans' Volume 7 of BILLIG'S SPECIALIZED CATALOGUES, CANADA: Constant Plate Varieties (likely 1953 - no date given, but last stamp he includes is from 1953), he stated that "only 18 complete sheets known." I have since acquired a couple of sheets of the UL Pane of Plate 1, but could never locate this item. (From Hans' drawing, I can't help but wonder if it is a kiss print from the start of the set-up of the printing run.)

Anyway, after a long story and many years of searching for this 'major re-entry' a minor re-entry has finally shown its face!

Richard Hautala has located a neat little re-entry on this stamp showing doubling of the lower right corner, including the tiny '1947.'

The full stamp is shown to the right, with a close-up scan showing the re-entry details.
