I think I asked this at StampWants a few years ago and didn't get a definitive answer. Perhaps someone here knows:

Under 1905a, Scott Specialized (2011) states:

"Untagged stamps from plate 1 come only Bureau precanceled with lines. Untagged stamps from plate 2 come both without and with Bureau precancel lines; values are for non-precanceled examples."



I have never been able to find a plate #2 lines only precancel of 1905. Does such an animal exist, or is that simply a mistake in the listing?

re: 1905a precancel

That is a footnote error in the Scott US Specialized that has been corrected. Plate 2 only exists without precancel bars.

re: 1905a precancel

Thanks, Kim! I had always wondered if that was a mistake. Durland seemed to indicate that plate 2 was only on the C press, untagged, and without precancel bars, but the Scott footnote was in conflict with that assessment. Thanks for the PM to send the revised footnote.

Mystery solved!

re: 1905a precancel

Not only was the footnote corrected, the confusing listing was also "corrected".

The 2015 Scott US Specialized has the corrected listing/footnote. The 2013 still has the error. I don't have the 2014 to compare.

Sorry, I must have missed that post on SW a few years back. Glad you asked again.
