Hello:
Please see below. I've reported this to the NSSC Editor. It was also unseen by Walsh. Plate Position, unknown.

- crack running from top of margin through right side of "T" in "CENT" to bottom of ribbon. Enlarged image also shows a hairline down right margin.

He directed me to the line on the right side. I hadn't noticed it. I assumed it was a hairline, now you suggest differently. You are probably correct. He also advised me to send a write-up to the NFLD editor of the BNAPS NFLD study group, which I did. The plate Crack will appear in the April BNAPS newsletter.

Steve,
Is there a reason why this is a crack and not a scratch?
Is there a reason why the faint line along the right isn't a residual lay-out line?
(As you may guess, it looks like a scratch and a residual lay-out line to me.)

No problem. I advised him that the hairline in the right margin could be a roller line. Still, the Crack was a nice find!

I think it's a plate scratch and not a crack. Plate scratches are thinner and usually in a straight line, just like this one.

I'm not a printing expert, that's why I forwarded it to NSSC and the BNAPS Nfld Study Group. It was suggested that We/I may try to get a better proof scan from the "Library and Archives Canada" to see if the faint line may appear anywhere. The earlier scans that I posted make it difficult to see the start and end of this line, so I have marked them on the scan below.



My intention of forwarding this scan to John Walsh was to show the crack/scratch. That's what really stood out to me. It was John who noticed the line. There have been some questions and comments here, so hopefully between now and April, there will be more answers with help from the StampCommunity and the BNAPS Study Group.

Respectfully,
Steve

Unusual vignette on that one (#32)
If you had both Edward vignettes (#32 and 32A) in the day, and showed them to a friend, they would think they were 2 different children.

Here is an older thread on Newfoundland Plate Scratches. I have quite a few of them.

Could I please ask anyone who has copies of Scott 32 to search their stocks if not already done so? I would like to be able plate this one if possible.

Many thanks,
Steve
