Good Morning,

I have two different Newfoundland 4c Queen Elizabeth II perf 12.5 stamps with the same characteristics and don't have the specialized materials to identify the type or catalog code. Both show ink marks or dots in the "OU" of Newfoundland which are in the same locations.

Thanks for looking

Hi souldjer777

I have looked at all my Scott 256/247 and do not shown the oddity.
That does not mean it is not important...I would contact Ralph at
re-entries.com and see what he thinks...You never know.

This stamp is Scott 256 in Unitrade perforation 12.5x12.5
N.S.S.C. catalouge shows perforations of....
12.5x12.5
12.5x12.8
12.8x12.8
12.8x12.5

Scott 247 perf. 13.5

Robert

I checked the couple I have and no dots. Be interesting to see if it were constant and found on others.

Like stallzer said..no dots...I checked about 30 of mine and covers and no dots.

souldjer777...If you contact Ralph like I suggested, may be a possible constant, or not...Good luck.

Robert

Hmh.... I have 50+ of this very common stamp and did not see a similar one.
You might be on to something--though not sure what

The 3 dots are in identical positions on both stamps. Might be a constant flaw.

Well, since I discovered this variety, I'm calling this variety "Dots in OU with tall left 4".

Hi souldjer777
Before you let this possible re-entry go, I would contact John Walsh at the link below..

He is the Newfoundland guru with his N.S.S.C. catalouge.
Let him answer your question...Just my opinion.

Robert

Not likely a re-entry, but possibly a plate flaw.
There is also a dot below the C that is the same on both.

This indicates that possibly both are from the same plate position.
