1916-17 Washington-Franklin issues

Perforated 10, unwatermarked

Scott 462, 1˘, plate number 7656

Scott 462 var, 1¢ misperfed, plate number 8398

Scott 462a, 1˘ single from booklet pane, plate number 7880

Scott 465, 4˘, plate number 7372

Scott 465, 4¢ precanceled, plate number 7372

Scott 466, 5˘, plate number 7633

Scott 467, 5˘ red. This error occurred when one or two 5-cent dies were inadvertently used to replace worn dies within a 2-cent plate. Plate number 7942 was used to print all of the 5˘ red error stamps, and a plate block of the 2˘ value, Scott 463, is shown. However, none of the 5˘ errors is close enough to the edge of the pane to appear in a plate block. A pair of the 5˘ error with a normal 2˘ stamp is shown at the right.

Scott 468, 6˘, plate number 7139

Scott 469, 7˘, plate number 6936

Scott 470, 8˘, plate number 5725

Scott 470, 8¢ precanceled, plate number 5724

Scott 474, 12˘, plate number 6913

Scott 475, 15˘, plate number 6819

Scott 476, 20¢ precanceled, plate number 6926

Scott 476A, 30˘, plate number 6911, photographically cropped from a plate block of 6

All copies of Scott 476A are unused with full gum.  Certified genuine copies of this rarity must generally be in multiples to prove that there is no trace of a watermark.  This stamp was not recognized with a Scott catalog number until 1957.  Since then only two full panes, one partial pane and one plate number single have been certified as genuine -- meaning that, at most, only five or six copies with plate number have been found.

Scott 477, 50˘, plate number 7049

No more than 10 plate blocks are thought to exist.

Scott 478, $1, plate number 5782

Scott 479, $2 Madison reprinted from the 1902-03 series, perforated 10, plate number 8015

Scott 480, $5 Marshall reprinted from the 1902-03 series, perforated 10, plate number 8016

Scott 480 var, $5 Marshall, paste-up pair with plate number 8016.  Probably unique.

Scott 483 var, 3˘ Type I, precanceled, plate number 8139

Scott 484, 3˘ Type II, plate number 8325

Scott 485, 5˘ red. This error occurred when one or two 5-cent dies were inadvertently used to replace worn dies within a 2-cent plate. Plate number 7942 was used to print all of the 5˘ red error stamps, and an example of the 2˘ value, Scott 482, is shown. However, none of the 5˘ errors is close enough to the edge of the pane to appear in a plate block.
