Newfoundland 186 (Die I) has a stamp design width of around 20.4 mm while Newfoundland 186ii (Die II) has a stamp design width of around 21 mm. It is believed that Perkins Bacon printed stamps measure 20.4 mm and that Waterlow printed stamps measure 21 mm. However, this cannot apply here since this stamp was not printed by Waterlow. The discovery relating to this and similar stamps has been made by John Walsh and Robin Moore.

Interesting Jogil. On the left stamp, is that a known variety or just an EFO/

Petert4522: Looks like some messy printing ink spots.

Here is an interesting comparison with Canada Admiral stamps:

Wet printed 107 stamp (17.5 mm) on top of dry printed 107e stamp (18 mm).

The Unitrade Catalogue says the following for Newfoundland:

The Perkins printings (20.4 mm) are slightly smaller than the Waterlow printings (21.0 mm). [# 183-210, 1932-1937]

The Waterlow printings (21.0 mm) are slightly larger than the Perkins printings (20.4 mm). [# 253-266, 1941-1944]
