Thanks for the comments, Moyock13, especially about the town name. I think you're right about the town being St. Francisville, LA! It's good to be able to enter the town in my stamp database.

Classic, it almost appears that the LR diamond block it doubled. It's not totally clear as the cancellation blocks some of it.

Interesting observation, Caper. I think I see the same feature on the Chase print. I'll have another look at the DSLR photo tomorrow.

Caper, The uploaded images of stamps from position 66R2L don't show the possible doubling of the LR diamond block well due to cancel or print quality issues, but the position on the Chase print shows that some part of the design is doubled to the right of the LRDB. Here is the corner of 66R2L from the Chase print, and from my DSLR camera image, showing the consistency of the feature:

Classic - interesting to compare a 66R2E with your 66R2L. Lower right corner is somewhat similar, the connection between the top label and diamond block is more intense, but on mine the bottom line, (fairly close cut) does not appear doubled at all. (colors have been enhanced a bit for clarity)

Caper,

Thanks for posting those great closeup images of your 66R2e!

Seeing your images of the early state makes me wonder whether the feature to the right of the the LR diamond block resulted from a double transfer at all. The double transfer on the early state looks very minor to me, with a dot of color in the left of the E of CENTS being the most distinguishing feature.

There also appears to be a couple of things going on around the LL diamond block on 66R2e. There is a tiny vertical line between the LLDB and label block. Also, there appears to be a defect in the white space of the LL diamond. Below is a portion of a 66R2e image from the Stamp Smarter plating database. These features also show on the stampplating.com images.

Regarding this position, Chase wrote; 66R2 (e) showed a slight shift, whereas 66R2 ( L ) showed a different and very marked shift, and is, the well known variety in which the "C" of " CENTS" is so deformed that it makes a very good "G", thus the " THREE GENTS".

Classic - for your benefit, and anyone else following this thread, here's the full scan of my 66R2E, color unedited (it's on cover and was certed by Amonette 7/99. It was dubbed "med-deep orange brown").

Good discussion on 66R2*.

I concur with what has been said so far.

I will say that sometimes it is difficult to determine if something resulted from a subsequent entry of the transfer roll, versus some sort of other plate damage.

In this case, with the proximity to the right outer line, the possibility of a slip of the recutting tool on 2E seems certainly a possibility here. Its hard to be sure. It is definitely a curious 'blob'.

Well the mark is on the early and late state, so that makes it clear that it had nothing to do with the big re-entry double transfer on the late state. It already existed on the early state.

Maybe one of you can tell me why the UL triangle recuts look fresher on the early state of the plate vs the late. In my limited knowledge of the process it seems it should be just the opposite, that the recuts would have been made as the plate wore. But, I'm sure some one will educate me. Thanks!

Caper - Re-entry can have an ironing-out effect.

Here is one that I plated as 88L3. It is interesting because of the doubled right frame line. The stamp must be an early impression being so sharp. It is an excellent copy. I think the postmark may be Lancaster, PA.

That is certainly a nice 3-rows example.

Glad to see you working with 3c stamps as well.
I referred to your 5c 47 page the other day.

edit: I agree that Lancaster is a possibility
