64. Plate varieties: Also called sometimes plate flaws, included in this category are double transfers (what our British and Canadian friends call "re-entries"), position dots, plate cracks, die flaws, relief breaks, worn plates, plate damage and repairs. Also included is any physical alteration to the plate, intentional or not, resulting in a nonuniform stamp that can be identified and matched to a specific location on a plate. While mostly collected in the United States on intaglio-printed stamps, plate varieties can be found associated with other types of printing. The values of these items relate to the basic stamp and the visual degree of the plate variety.


Type 64: A dropped transfer occurred on plate 16065, position U.R. 52 of Scott 569.
