Hi, everyone:

Can anyone help out with software to show the errors better that I describe below? If a larger file is required, I can PM one.

"Unlisted Canada Error on 726. Albino print of all black print is printed above and to the right of the visible print. Only at the right angle and right light is this visible.

Thank you,
Steve

Did you mean something other than "all black print is printed above and to the right of the black print" ?

Shifted inscriptions in all directions are often seen on this stamp.

Your's is shifted down.

Hi Steve. I know there were several printing shifts on these. I see from the scan that it is down on this one. I have one as well, but unsure of shift, I believe it is sideways.

I do not believe mine has an albino print strike without the ink. So if yours is up, it is probably more to the normal height where it would normally be but just more to the right?

All the black inscriptions have "doubled" albinos. I can't say that it is printed because they were not. What has probably happened is that the black was to to be printed but there was no ink. So, it left the exact area of where the black printing was to be in an albino state. Then the sheet was refed, but printed in the wrong area, hence the shifted black.

The two I have were from a Bileski collection. I'll attach a note of his scan below. What I'm asking the community for is if somone who is good at graphic software, to get the image to a state where both albino and black ink can be seen.

It really is quite a unique error.

Even without all the arrows and the circle I can see the variety clearly in stamps101's picture. However I can not see even a bit of it in the OP's picture

Thanks for those. It looks like it may be the same error with theirs more pronounced. Was there a price?
Thank you,
Steve

They state Unitrade lists the block of 4 as $1750 CDN and their price on the site is $750 USD.

Yes, I see now that theirs is 726ii, inscriptions doubled, kiss print. $1750 for a blank corner block of 4.
So, I have 726ii but less pronounced.
Thank you everyone for your help.

I am puzzled by the images that you have posted. Bileski says that the whole sheet was affected but in the images only the highlighted area on one stamp seems to be doubled. I cannot see any doubling on the other three stamps shown. That does not make sense.

A good point. If the whole sheet was refed, this is a separate error.

It is interesting that Saskatoon Stamp also has one listed with this description:
"$1 Fundy DOUBLE PRINT. "$1 POSTES/POSTAGE CANADA" printing is shifted 1mm to the left with strong "ALBINO" second impression in proper position. Ex Arn collection."

And here is a pic ...I cannot see it here either.

I agree with Wert - something seems off. I think we are all looking at the the wrong way round - literally.

I have just looked at my copies of this stamp. FROM THE BACK the impression of CANADA is clearly visible and very easy to see on th eplain white background without the distraction of the printing.

Surely if the double impression is real and was caused by the whole sheet being fed through the press twice as Bileski says then you would expect to see two identical impressions (the print pressure would have been the same for both) but one impression would be displaced. As I said before this should be on all the stamps and going by what I have would be very easy to see

Steve123. Can you supply an oblique image of the back of the item you have.

This is the second copy that I have. Photographed this time, at this angle, you should be able to see the "A" in the proper position above and between "DA". Saskatoon Stamp #75872.0 is the same I believe, just that the shifting of the "Albino" print is in a different position.

My image below... (other letters appear at a different angle / lighting)
