Might be, might not be but the lower right numeral is very similar to the image shown in Unitrade.

Hey stallzer...You got to get yourself a USB microscope...
Here is an example how close you can get (even closer)..See map stamp numeral below.

I do not have a newer catalogue than 2005, and the picture in 2005 of 75iii seems to me to be showing 75ix instead of 75iii, so no way there for me to compare. I do not have one myself.

However . . .

Your picture seems to show ink pull or drag from the bottoms of the numeral ones, maybe some dots in the right hand numeral box (may be the cancel), some green engraved nicks or slips (retouches) in the 'O' and "N' af ONE, as well as a nick outwards on the top of the left numeral one, and a nick or two upwards on the right numeral one.

stallzer: although your scan is less than ideal, you have clearly found the misplaced entry (identified as 75viii in Unitrade 2015) and shown in detail at re-entries.com as "#75 Major Misplaced Entry 3". In addition to the marks in the numeral box, your full stamp image clearly shows the line arc that begins at the top of the E in CENTS and runs downwards to the right until it shows below the design. Nice find! Your copy seems to show the details better than the version on Ralph Trimble's site: http://www.re-entries.com/misplaced...numeral.html

wert: What USB microscope do you use? In another post, your image of it looked like the Celestron 44302-B which I see on Amazon.ca for less than $60. How do you use it with stamps? It seems to have a stand that would make it somewhat hard to maneuver a stamp around. Does it provide a live video feed to the PC for interactive flyspecking or do you have to take images to see one at a time on the PC screen? I am quite the techie guy but have never played with one of these devices.

Thanks Scottamer, I had completely missed that, here is a scan of the arc I think you're referring to.

stallzer: That is indeed the arc line I am referring to. Nice find on cover.

wert: Looks like you do have the USB microscope I was referring to. Does it give a live image on the PC screen as you move it around or do you need to take a picture to see it on the computer screen? The text on the scanner makes it look like it only does 10X or 150X magnification. Yet the description I see everywhere mentions 10X to 40X plus 150X. Does it actually have a range of magnifications between 10X and 40X in addition to the 150X setting?

Yes Scottamer...At least with the program I use it gives live feed and can be tilted or moved up or down (which gives you the 10x to 150x)...Found things that a normal scanner just didn't pick up...Well worth the money.

I got the same microscope for Xmas as well. Works really nice and can be had on Amazon for under $40 now at least in the U.S.

Confirmation from re-entries.com, it is verified to be the 75viii major misplaced entry. Also, since I got off track with that stamp I was informed that the first stamp is also a major re-entry although much more common. He said it was the same as #11 on his site but I see no picture of it. Anyways, a very scarce find on cover I guess so this one just got promoted from cover box to 3 ring binder for protection.

Thanks all.
