2¢ Carmine 61LL1

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 63LL1

2¢ Carmine 65LL1

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 66LL1

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada. The proof of Plate 66 does not have guide arrows. Leo determined the plate by 'the process of elimination'. The arrow on this stamp does not match any of the other plates with guide arrows.

2¢ Carmine 79LL1

2¢ Carmine LL1 b

With such a small portion of the guide arrow showing, it is unlikely that this one will be plated. Additional examples may help.

2¢ Carmine 72LL100

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.At first glance, it appears that the arrow is pointing in the wrong direction. After observing the plate proof at LAC, Leo states, "In fact, the tip of the "real" arrow, which points in the right direction, is a bit further down, too far down to appear on the stamp. However, the shaft of the arrow and the flared line forming the right side of the arrowhead both extend upwards above the tip of the arrow.  It is the extensions we are seeing, giving the impression of an arrow pointing downwards."This stamp is part of a vertical pair (72LL90 and 72LL100) and the upper stamp also shows interesting marks. At the lower right of 72LL90 there is a strong guide dot and what appears to be two intersecting arcs.

2¢ Carmine 62LR10

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.This example of a Marler Type R9, is dated June 30, 1914 - only four days later than Marler's early date for the type.

2¢ Carmine 62LR91

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 63LR91

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada. He noted the little "soap bubbles" at the top of each arrow line on this image as well as on the LAC proofs to confirm the plate position.

2¢ Carmine 62UL10

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 63UL10

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.The scratch in the left numeral box is constant.


2¢ Carmine 64UL10

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 65UL10

With two apparent straight edges, this one literally 'makes no sense". It is a result of the top being trimmed.


2¢ Carmine 66UL10

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 73UL10

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.With the arrow so far above the stamp image, this position may be impossible to plate without additional selvedge attached.

2¢ Carmine 65UL91

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.

Not from plate 5.

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 66UR1

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.The proof sheet of Plate 66 does not have guide arrows, so most of the Plate 66 identifications have been accomplished by the process of elimination. This position offers us an additional clue. Quoting Leo, "The stamp has a line in the bottom of the G in POSTAGE that is also on the proof."


5 Cent Blue 5UR1

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada and provided the image.


2¢ Carmine 63UR100

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 64UR100

Contributed by Simon Young. Plate position determined by matching position and shape of arrow head with that of the know example from 64LR10

2¢ Carmine 65UR100

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 66UR100

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada. The proof of Plate 66 has very faint horizontal guidelines, "much fainter than on the stamp." Leo determined the plate by 'the process of elimination'. The arrow on this stamp does not match any of the other plates with guide arrows.


2¢ Carmine 69UR100

2¢ Carmine 70UR100

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.


2¢ Carmine 79UR100

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada. Leo has further determined that any 2¢ Carmine of Marler Type 16 showing hand engraved guide arrows must be from plate 79.


2¢ Carmine 94UR100

Leopold Beaudet determined the position using the plate proofs at Library and Archives Canada.The distance of the guide arrow from the frame will ensure that the arrow only helps identify stamps with attached selvedge. However, the 3 guide dots along the straight-edged bottom margin are very helpful.Note: This guide arrow was created using a transfer roller and was not entered by hand as are the others on these pages.
