Ok I'm new to this but I just noticed that the horizontal lines in the fields on both sides of the portrait on the scroll issue appear broken and misaligned.
It looks more like something went wrong but it seems they're all the same.

Was this intended as part of the design?

Cheers, Bill

Bill posed the question: Was this intended as part of the design?
Answer: "No"; the model had plain (dark) background. The image is from Stamp Auction Network, Brigham Auction #5. Link can't be posted because I have <50 posts.


The engraver interprets the background in the form of lines/cross hatch or combo of both; see second image; the break in the lines is un-usual.
Hope this helps.

The answer was yes...The proof was checked by the proof reader back then, excepted as the design to be printed and the run began.

See proof below.

Die proof is not "the design".
Design pre-dates the proof.

The answer would probably be "no" since this may be the original from which the vignette is based on as follows: http://www.bnaproofs.com/c149es2.html

The image shown above by jogil looks the same as what's on the banknotes below.
The banknotes were printed by Canadian Banknote Company Limited

Cheers, Bill
