What an interesting thread!

As it happens, I live in a home formerly occupied by a siderographer who worked on stamps at the Canadian Bank Note company here in Ottawa, Ontario. I didn't know that when I purchased the house, but only recently found out through a newsletter supplement of the Elizabethan Study Group of the British North America Philatelic Society (BNAPS). I wonder what the previous (now deceased) occupant would have thought, knowing that many of the results of his work were housed here?

It really is a small world.

Here is another example of a short transfer, with the top of the upper label block missing above GE of POSTAGE, and the top of the upper right diamond block missing. This is #10A plate position 38L1i.

Not only can there be short transfers from the process being incomplete, but foreign entries can be caused by over-rocking the transfer roll. That is because there were usually multiple designs on a transfer roll. That is how the R116, R120, and R142 foreign entries were created.
