Image Not FoundImage Not FoundI purchased a very nice dealer lot at auction of GV (post Admiral issue). All inventory on stock cards an identified. I have a line pair of Scott #182 that are ID'd as containing a "Cockeyed King" Variety. It only occurred in the stamp left of the line. I have looked at these til I'm blue in the face, and have done a lot of online looking. I honestly am having a hard time convincing myself that the stamp on the left is the cockeyed variety.

Any thoughts?

I don't think that is the cock eyed king. I have been looking for one and here is a picture from on line. It's the stamp on the left of the line and it's pretty obvious!!

re: Any Canada GV collectors out there?

Harvey is correct. It is not the cock-eyed King. While the cock-eye variety always occurs to the left side of a line pair, not all line pairs exhibit the variety.

The coils were printed by 2 semi-circular plates locked together to form a cylinder. Each plate was 24x16 stamps. The joints between the plates caused the "line" of line pairs, occurring between every 24th and 25th stamp. The cock-eyed king was caused by a retouch of the plate in only one of the 16 rows, next to one of the two joints and can occur only 11 times in a roll of 500 coil stamps (i.e. in one row and only every 48th stamp, or every second line pair)

So my rough calculation says that the cock-eye can occur in only one of every 32 line pairs (16 rows x 2 joints causing line pairs).
