ioagoa, Thanks for showing that beautiful Chase-photo copy of 2R2e, and discussing the differences between the Early and Late states caused by extensive re-entry.

I find it fascinating that this C-relief position on the early state of the plate was re-entered with B-relief, and that the re-entry obliterated all traces of the gash on shoulder.

Another cause of a different relief influencing the entry appearance is the 9th row adjustment made on the 3-relief transfer roll #1 of the 1c stamp. Recall that both 9th and 10th row are B reliefs. 9th row have A reliefs above them, while 10th row have B reliefs above them. This means each was guided by a different relief above on the transfer roll.

This produced the 'dingle' at lower left of the 9th row B reliefs, which is, in effect the only place on a B relief where the A relief showed "more" of the design at bottom left than the B. That's how you tell 9th row B reliefs.

There are similar issues on the 3c stamp from the article on guide reliefing, etc, that you brought up earlier.

#11A 8R1L is a known double transfer position, of which I have two copies. One of them is clearly printed, revealing a distinct rectangle on top of the ULDB. The Chase print shows this feature pretty well, but at low resolution. I just wanted to show this composite image of my two copies so the clearly-printed stamp can be seen at 2400 DPI.

It was already kinda sorta identified as a #9 but I will say that revcollector was 100% correct.

Thanks, Moyock13.

I have no experience plating #17s, although I do have the Neinken book on plating the 12-cent stamps. I could try plating it some time, but probably not in the near future.
