I have used the search box and cannot find anything.

Can someone point me to it, if there is one. I have the complete set, with reverse printing, I think.

There are several under overrun countries reverse printing. However, in almost all cases the pictures are missing rendering the posts useless.

Here's a previous thread with a good copy of the French stamp

Thanks redwoodsandy and Partime.

Oops. Forgot to hit the subscribe button.

Probably deserves a new post of its own. I have the set plus duplicates, and about 90 odd scans mostly 1200 dpi close detail.

The problem is, I am not 100% sure of them. Though if I look with a glass I am 99%.

So here goes. Scott 909a. Unused on paper in poor condition. Plus a used one next. If these are, then the rest probably are.

Thought I would give this a bump.

Plenty of views but no comments yet. What do you think ?.

Looks like it to me. Sometimes the red isn't thickly printed enough to really say, but everything shows nicely in the blowups. And there's (probably) a constant flaw in the red in the used stamp, with the dots/blobs at the lower left and right. Great!

Here's the reference to check all, if needed:

hy-brasil.

Thanks very much for the reply and link.

That looks a great resource, and a lot of reading. Plus exactly what I need, lots of pictures. And so many varieties to check for.

I will spend the time checking each stamp carefully before I put them on here. I have them all scanned, with blowups as the above stamps.

I did notice on the damaged mint stamp, that the country name looked a bit odd, with joined letters.

Something to occupy me when I get snowed in this week.

The Poland does look a bit strange. Hmm

I don't think you have the Bright Red over Black variety ... the red would be much brighter, and you probably couldn't see any of the black in that area.

You do, however, have some Poland varieties that are listed in French's Encyclopedia (Encyclopedia of Plate Varieties on U.S. Bureau-Printed Postage Stamps by Loran C. French). Here is the pertinent section copied from that book for your reference.



In particular, you may have the "D of Poland resembles an O" variety (Location LL 7). As with most other fly specking of varieties, though, these have interest to some specialists, but probably not much extra value. Still, keepers nonetheless.

As it does on several others I have. More to follow.

I might actually be useful for a change, and supply some information.

Partime. Thanks for the info.

The main area I concentrated my eyes on, is where the flag joins the pole.

If the black is not visible on the real thing, then probably none of them are reverse prints.

Most are used and off paper so have been soaked. Would that affect the colours ?.

Partime.

Are you trying to wind me up.

Were you joking when you said the black would not be visible ?.

No, actually I refer you to my first message which had a link to a thread where a French stamp has a very strong red color indicative of a "reverse printing", and you can't see any of the black under the red. You should jump to that thread and see the pictures.

Partime.
Did you have a look at the link provided by hy-brasil. The picture of the reverse printing of the Poland stamp, totally contradicts your statement. The black is clearly visible.

sdtom.
Apparently there are hundreds of minor varieties on this series of stamps. Sorry, I cannot explain the technical aspects. The link provided by hy-brasil above is probably your best bet for an explanation.
