Looking closer at this Sc #295 it almost a[pears that there is some doubling in the lettering. One other abnormality was noticed in the top of the 2nd telephone pole, which seems to end in a curl. I had also included a 'normal' 295 for comparison. I would be interested to hear your opinions. Thanks in advance!

This position is not listed in the French book of plate varieties. However something is clearly going on in the "two cents". Needs a larger image.

Looks like a double transfer to me. Nice.

New potential double transfer - looking for opinions from others.

Found this Sc #295 with what appears to be a double transfer, much different than my previous post. Look at the shading in the lettering. Is this a double transfer or merely an inking issue? Looks a bit too uniform for an inking issue to me. (I had to edit the scans to make the shade a bit darker to see the inking better.)

This stamp is known to have double transfers in both the frame and the vignette.

Trying to keep these Scott 295 questions together...

If one finds two stamps in an issue with identical flaws would that be enough to call it a variety? I am referring to the 'cut' telegraph wire. There is also a dot of ink in the upper left and a horizontal line to the left of the 'U' in UNITED the same on both.

After much hunting I think I finally ID'd the position on the 'cut wire' 295 from a Siegel posting of a full sheet. Looks to be plate # 1092 (top) and position 20. This is a close up of the top corner of the sheet - sorry, but it's the best I can muster zooming-in on a copy from a Siegel download.

Cut wire: The black and red plates could be paired up into any combination. You have now ID'd one red frame plate paired with a black plate (of unknown plate number) which shows the cut wire. So what we know is position 20 on one of the black plates has the variety.

The black # is the only one that matters here.

There are two numbers along the top selvage - both red. Something else in the upper left that I'm unsure of.

This is the upper pane of 100 of the press sheet of 200.
The black plate number is in the bottom selvage, so unknown.

You are correct. Hoping to plate it. But, confirms the error exists on three stamps so far, one on that sheet. Not sure what qualifies as a variety but we know it's not a one-off error. Thanks John.
