Not being 100% sure what is or is not considered a double transfer, I was hoping to get an opinion on the top border of this RS155b:



There is a faint line just above the border. It is nearly all the way across with it strongest on the left.

The border is pretty wide on this issue, and maybe the extra is just the top edge?

Does the bottom right show something similar? If it does, it might be a twisted transfer type of double transfer.

I don't think so, but it is hard to tell, the stamp is shifted down quite a bit and the border is through the perfs:

I don't see anything at the bottom. I think there was a bit of slippage up at the top, but I would not consider it strong enough to call it a double transfer. It's a fairly common stamp, it might be fun to look at some additional examples to see whether they show similar signs.

I have a few but didn't see anything similar (of course not a very big sample).

On a related vein:

Is there a description anywhere describing the DTs of the private die revenues?

The American Revenuer back issues have a number of articles on them. But there are still new ones to be found; I have three unlisted DT's myself.

what you have may be a copy with a layout line at the top that was not covered by the entry. many m an m stamps have the layout dots and lines (horizontal and vertical) show up and can appear at first glance to be doublingh of the frame lines of the design.
