Gilles le timbre,
Thanks. I am always looking. Mostly kiloware now though. Perhaps some have mint booklets or selvedge with numbers still on them? Hard to know.

On the two stamps in Column 4 of each booklet, numbered or unnumbered, I have looked at so far, mint only so far, I have noticed there is a scored line drawn down vertically through the approximate middle of whole two stamps plus the selvedge also.

Only visible when holding the booklet or stamps at an angle to a good light or during datlight, both horizontally and vertically.

Look on the right side of the two dark blue bubbles lined up below the mother otter. I think, myself, that the line is on the backs of the mint stamps also.

This may be from a machine grasping the stamps or pane or sheet, pressing upon them.

Picture showing the approximate position of the scored or pressed-in line:

I have noticed the pressed-in line on a used stamp now, although the line is harder to see on a used stamp, and not at all on the back (pressed into the gum on mint stamps).

It is unfortunate the puzzler, a fellow Nova Scotian will not get to see this grouping of booklet markers I was able to amass from Cape Breton Island and just into the start of the mainland of Nova Scotia when these booklets were current in the P.O.. I was collecting the #'s and positions and markers. I have assembled them all except a trifecta if it exists.

But what was interesting was the variance in the placement of the markers on the covers, shown from left to right in ascending order, some dark and some faint, and especially the last one with a quadruple mark.

Hi No1philatelist,

do you have the Blue 1 + serial number and counter on the cover?

Seem difficult to found.

Actually, I may have mispoke earlier. I do now believe I have a trifecta. It's been a long time since I looked at them. Going to have to check through them tonight when I get time.

Booklets, I do have the 1 & 2 , serials, serials with 1 & 2, some with and without markers, as well as a high serial and a variety of different ones with the dashes and dots on the stamps.

Edit: 1st paragraph and may have the 1 with serial and black counter mark. Just not sure how strong the mark is.

Mike

Booklets, I do have a #1 cylinder with serial as well as a weak marker on the cover. Do you have the same in a #2?
