OK, I just got my new Unitrade (never had one until now) and am searching through my collection for something interesting. My first find could be something termed "hairlines" that I have seen in some other threads. The left hand stamp shows a stronger hairline, but does the right hand version qualify? (I don't think so.)

The one on the left 'might' be considered a feint example. Some examples I have seen are much heavier, but, you are on the right track

I will try to find one in my stock books. I know I have a few examples. They are also known on a couple of other denominations of the same set plus on some values of the 1908 Quebec Tercentenary issue as well.

Here is an example of a 1908 Quebec Tercentenary 1 cents denomination with hairlines.

They are on the left hand side on mine.

I am guessing these would be the result of small cracks in the metal plate picking up ink and printing it on the stamp?

Bujutsu, I cannot see hairlines on your stamp. Perhaps a higher resolution stamp would show them.

Here is a good example from www.re-entries.com:

Now those re-entry lines are DEFINITELY cracks. Takes my examples to shame. I know the right hand one is dubious, at best, but my left example does show some curvature / crack-like indications.

Yes guys...A crack in a plate will gather heavy ink and make a very obvious line...i came across this when I was younger and worked as a printer...Didn't happen often, but it does.

I tried BeeSee, but, this is the best I could come up with.

The lines are there in the left margin.

I can see the hairline cracks in Bujutsu's picture. Almost at the left bottom.
The cracks that BeeSee shows in the re-entries website are enormous. I have tried to make a scan of an example like that in my collection but they are not strong enough. The cracks in question are on a Transportation coil , Scott # 2124a (US) and are called the "Rain Cracks". They are found on two rows of the plate 5 web, row 1 & 2. I will keep trying to scan them, maybe I get lucky.

I just picked up another example. Mint, but no gum. The hairlines really pop out on this one.

The stamps at the edges of the sheet have stronger hairlines. Here's one from the corner of the sheet. This because the cracks are at the sides of the plate.

I have seen corner blocks which are quite impressive.

Hi Partime,

I would say that your left hand stamp shows definite hairlines and that your right hand stamp only shows an ink pull.

Your can learn more about hairlines including the theories of how they are caused plus see some great high definition images of them at my FlySpecker.com sight. Some relevant links are show below.

As JimJung mentioned, stamps with margin show great view of hairlines. Here is a Canada 104 viii deep blue green, quite easy to identify, both on the margin and on the stamp.
