Here is a minor plate variety noted, but not listed in the UPSS catalog.

Called either "unruly hair" or "partially missing queue"

"many minor plate varieties of this card have been reported, such as a break above the "J" of "JEFFERSON", an unruly hair in Jefferson's queue and inscription frame damage"

I was not aware of this one, until I read the article.In going back through my stack of extras, I found two.

As knowledge expands, it is fun to see the fly-specks we can find. Congratulations.

Fantastic variety, but that does not look like a flyspeck to me. A flyspeck is usually much less obvious, one needs a loupe to see it

A few items:

1. title should be UX27 (S37)

2. I looked through about 500 UX27 cards and found one copy of the unruly hair variety postmarked 1949, quite close to the 1950 example above:



3. Also two copies of the "break above J of Jefferson", which extends upward through the E of One, and also irregularity to the top of the C in Cents. Postmark dates of 1940 and 1945, for those wanting to target their search.

John - you are correct. Thanks. ( That topic title was a mess)

I'm not sure from the article (Mar-Apr 1981) if they have pined down exactly when it started.I've looked for other references, but have not found any.

Thanks for the "J" example; had not seen one. Now I have to go back through the stack.
Pat
