Rod

You truly are indefatigable. Does "tagged" mean with flourescence? I've been meaning to ask for ages.

(Sucks in breath, through tight lips)
Hmmmm,
Geoff, may I pass on this one ?

To be honest, I am all "sixes and sevens" with these references,
I'll let the ball go through to the keeper,
and ask our Canadian Specialists to enlighten us, please?

I think I have seen it explained before, but it didn't linger in the grey matter.
tagged-flourescence, phosphorescence ?

Update : From "Askphil"

Tagged: philatelic item that has had the postage area treated with material sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) light, so that the
item can be mechanically for cancelling. (sic)

Further:

Taggant: phosphorescent added to a stamp to aid mechanical canceling, only visible under ultra-violet light; may be
applied in a strip, a block or over the entire stamp.
Tagged: philatelic item that has had the postage area treated with material sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) light, so that the
item can be mechanically for cancelling.
Tagged block: tagging applied on a stamp in a rectangle that does not touch the perforations.
Tagging: phosphor coating either on a stamp or paper, that is invisible in normal light; used to activate automated mail
handling equipment; first applied in Great Britain in 1959.
Tagging breaks: regularly recurring interruptions in their overall tagging; found in some stamps of the U.S.
Transportation Series.
Tagging ghost: the ghost of a stamp image picked up from freshly printed stamps by the tagging roller and placed on the
next impression.

Rod
Many thanks. Can't say the tagging does much for the look of the stamps - a partial toning effect (perhaps only in the scan).

Hi Geoff,
No, one sees the toning effect quite clearly.

A fine example of the dichotomy of Philately, collecting to show the truth, and personal choice of appearance.
One could imagine the German Experience with the 1935 OSTROPA souvenir sheet.

One showing the sheet disintegrating under the acid gum, another with the gum removed.

Nice pages Rod, and a good explanation. The vertical yellow tagging clearly shows, especially down the middle, on the low values. Much harder to see on the 7c and 8c without an ultraviolet lamp.

The tagging on Rod's is the early experimental Winnipeg tagging. All those stamps also exist with Ottawa tagging, which have two bars on all values, much narrower in width. Ottawa tagging eventually became the standard. Scott does not distinguish between them for some unknown (to me) reason.

Thanks Brian,
I guess I'll now have to be alert to the Ottawa tagging,
I had read Canada specialists discussing tagging, without ever understanding it.

Rod, here are the two different types of tagging, the Winnipeg on the left, and the Ottawa on the right.
