Robert, your first stamp looks like it might be an engravers slip to me. The second one may be nothing more then a piece of dirt was on the plate ?

Take a look at these two. Lack of adequate ink perhaps?

Hi,

Nr.270

wert, your block shows position 31-32/41-42. Position 32 has this feature.

Here a position 32 from my database.





gettinold, your last image looks like pretty much as position 93.




Since my sheet were splitted in two, I had the wrong information from where I bought these many years ago.

Two types of sheet exist:

Four corners with plate numbers
Four corners blank

Salutations

Thanks Wert--are you officially a "Newfie" only poster now?

I think the latter one is the more interesting potentially newsworthy one (and I'll check my stock)...but what do I know? As the great John Walsh tells me - I'm just a beginner neophyte with lots to learn !
