Bottom Right Corner Dots Position Plate I

If you happen to have a stamp that is heavily cancelled but still can recogize the position of the 2 lower right hand dots (ie dot after NOV and dot after CREVIT) in the legend section then this page can possibly help you to refine your quest for a plate position.

There are 3 possible ways in which your stamp will match.
You will either have:
1. a reproduction from an essay sheet. Essay's were proposed designs which needed approval prior to printing for circulation and not considered as a viable legitimate stamp.
2. a genuine stamp issued for circulation and approved by the Postmaster General.
3. a very good forgery or fake (a genuine stamp which has been physically altered).

The following images are in order of closeness between the two dots. Mouseover on image for position number.

pos 4 pos 17 pos 18 pos 23 pos 13
pos 19 pos 7 pos 10 pos 2 pos 20
pos 8 pos 16 pos 12 pos 11 pos 22
pos 5 pos 1 pos 15 pos 25 pos 14
pos 3 pos 6 pos 9 pos 21 pos 24
