does anyone know if it is documented somewhere that this stamp was known to having copies of slip prints or re-entries.
see attached.

Progression in slip prints








as you can see there is almost a complete doubling on the bottom stamp.

I don't think double print. Looks more like over-inked, or a wet ink/paper combination that made it bleed a bit. In my definition, a double print would have a distinct, clear, repeated feature. I've got some Canada examples around here somewhere.

Hey Trodent

QUESTION: Are you sure you don't just have Scott 184's and 253's

Scott 184 - colour - grey/black - 20.4 mm
Scott 253 - colour - dark/grey - 21 mm

I find no slip prints/re-entries associated with these stamps on re-entries.com.

Could they be different stamps as per perforations.



Just saying Trodent...

Hi Trodent, You are looking at two different printings by two different printers. Perkins Bacon printings 1932-1937 were comb perf. 13 1/2, line perf. 14: Perfs. 13 3/4, 14, 14 1/4. The Perkins printings (20.4 mm) are slightly smaller than the Waterlow printings 1941-1944 (21.0 mm) Perf. 12 1/2. The appearance of the stamps also change slightly between the two printings. The two issues are easily mixed but with care can be identified properly.

I can't examine your stamps but this is what it appears to be.

I just double checked all 4 of those stamps.

All are perfed 13.5.

These 2 are definitely perfed 13.5





Overinking might be the issue
