Here's one that should send most 3c collectors into a cardiac episode.

I recently found an example of this position on an advertising cover.

If you are talking about the perforated stamp, look closely. Many positions from Plate 11L look similar.

off topic:

My favorite DT (19th century USA) is the Scott #2(B) double transfer in POST OFFICE. I like it when the double transfer is obvious from a mile away.





my second favorite is Scott #7, 89R2. Nienken claims its the largest, but I think the one above (Scott 2(B)), is more striking in appearance. My guess is Winston or txstamp could supply us with a wonderful pic of 89R2. It is high on my want list!

The 3c DTs above are cool, too, but I'm still a bigger fan of the the 1c and 10c

Mine might be a slightly different DT. It was listed as a #26 position 14L9. Since I know nothing of plating, I am taking it at it's word. I have an example of the imperf 3 cent DT as well.

I love that #2 DT as well. It and the 9X1 major DT are high on the list of things I hope to afford at some point.

rg, here's a decent copy of 89R2. Can you guess where I bought it? I have also sold two copies of 89R2 over the last year.

rev, your 14L9 is probably from the late state (14L9L). I don't have an image of that position nor do I have it in my collection. Can you post a scan?

As it turns out, I do have an image for 14L9. This is actually early state which your stamp might be. I would still like to see yours, rev.

Sharing these examples of DT's, 91L1l triple transfer and a 52R9 'Big' DT (as listed in Scotts). Have no kiss prints I can recall.

The complaint should be that it does not have the left margin, which shows it completely. :-)

If one really wants to see an example of the triple transfer one inverted, look at lot 56 from this Siegel auction to benefit the Postal Museum from December. Lot 56. There were some other great DT's in this sale as well.

It pays to look at your stamps. I acquired this cover as an example of a Fox fake. Years later looking at the stamp I saw it was a better double transfer variety (position 31R1).
