I have been looking through a lot of Newfoundland stamps.
I came across about 5 stamps that in catalouges are assigned 12x12 perforations.Most of them are 12x12, but a few measure 12.25x12.25

Don't know if I should ship a couple off to VINCENT GRAVES GREENE PHILATELIC RESEARCH FOUNDATION for verification.

Below are the Scott 44 and 48 that I am talking about.
Think I should send them to VGG foundation..???

22 copies of the 2 orange, I found 1 copy with the 12.25 perf.

Thanks for taking the time to check the perfs for me.
There are 3 more in the same perf range.

Hope it is enough to possibly be recognized as a new perf for catalouges to pick up on.

4 more Scott 51, 52, 56 and 59
Will post the others here as time goes on.

Thanks again.

Robert

There are also many more perforation anomalies with Newfoundland stamps...I have been working with a gentleman at BNAPS with reference to NFLD perforations...The excel sheet I have has approx. 121 differences and approx. 84 possible round offs.

Here for your interest is just a few of other Provinces that have perforation anomalies.

Nova Scotia Scott 9
Catalouge 12x12
Actual 11.8x11.8

Nova Scotia Scott 11i
Catalouge 12x12
Actual 11.8x11.8

Nova Scotia Scott 12
Catalouge 12x12
Actual 11.8x11.8

Nova Scotia Scott 13
Catalouge 12x12
Actual 11.8x11.8

P.E.I. Scott 5i
Catalouge 12x12
Actual 12x11.8

Just saying.
Robert

Since these Newfoundland Stamps are printed by the British North American Bank Note Co in Montreal AND some of the Canada Small Queens were also printed by British North American Bank Note Co in Montreal.

The logical solution would be, there must be multiple different perforations in the Newfoundland printings also. Since the Newfoundland 1 cent Prince of Wales and the 2 codfish stamps had multiple printings.
