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?
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.
