In the Scott Specialized it says that there is a 10c Washington (#68) that's a double transfer. But for the life of me I can't find a good example. There are a few posts on eBay that say DT but I don't see it.

Can anyone provide a good example of a Scott #68 Double Transfer?

Thanks.

rogdcam, thanks. I've cleaned my glasses several times, but I'm still not seeing a DT. I see a few spots where the ink may have smeared.

Can you point out the DT, please? Thanks.

I have an earlier impression of that DT but I can't post it right now.

This is the TAG variety. This stamp does have other double transfers in the lettering.

Okay ya'll. Sorry for being thick here, but what is TAG variety for a double transfer?

The double transfer is visible in the letters "TAG" of "POSTAGE",

The double transfer is along the bottom of the design and has nothing to do with the TAG variety. The TAG variety is NOT a double transfer.

There is some doubling in the elements below the "U" and "S".

Thanks Partime and everyone. I now understand the TAG variety supposed double transfer. Not really a double transfer, more of a defect type transfer or a bit of over inking. And in the link posted about another TAG discussion it was mentioned that Scott only estimated a $5 increase in value.

Scott has very low values for most double transfers. There are really only a handful that are otherwise, usually either because they are the very large obvious examples like the name #73 or #569, or on certain popular stamps such as #1 and #2. Many are quite scarce despite this; I have been looking for some for years and spent years looking before I found others.

Here is the stamp that I mentioned several months ago. I was relying on memory when I said that it was the same position as the one that rogdcam posted. I don't think it is. They are both from the margins of the plate and I would say from the same plate but not the same plate state. Because of the deep, dark color, it's a nice looking stamp and a pretty good double transfer too.

I am also interested in double transfers. On this 2nd image in this thread, there is a strong color streak to the right. What is that?

I have a double transfer (S.35 attached, not as well centered but a nice dated cancel) with an absolute clear doubling of the letters at the bottom and a couple wavy green colored streaks at the top. I don't know what causes those green wavy streaks. Anyone know the answer?
