Rereading yesterday's post I focused a bit on the stamp. I've recently received a deluge of examples of so-called postion dots on the battleships, and I've become accustomed to looking for these near the top center of the stamp. Yesterday's stamp presents an example of a dot in the center of the L in HALF at the top of the stamp.
These so-called dots are everywhere once I start looking for them. Is it the case on postage stamps that these dots were always so carelessly placed or not burnished off the plate? What gives? I understand that the Bureau was busy. Is this the only explanation?
In the coming week I will post a few more examples of these kinds of dots. Stay tuned.
