THE NEWFIE NEWSLETTER IVAoAo^ -- of the Newfoundland Study Group of BNAPS January/February 1991 Number 33 MORE ON THE LAST 'JEFINITIrES OF NEWFOUNDLAND by C. A. Stil l ions While these two proofs may look the same, they are considerably different for they were produced by two different security printing companies. The top one is Perkins 3acon die number 962 of the 25 cent value in the 1932 Industrial Issue. While the bottom one was proofed by Water low and Sons for the 1941 Nar printings -- the last definitives. Page 1 A, Stillions, Study Group Chairman and Newsletter Editor: .

Walter Hubbard was one of the managers At this time W. W. Sprague & Company was controled by t_ne Huooard family. The Hubbard family had aquired Perkins 3 a c o n from the ^e atn family during bankrupcy proceedings at the and of 1935. Waterlow and Sons was the small shop that produced Newfounn 41 postage stamps for W. W. Sprague & Co. 4 f t e r the destruction of the printing works, some dies, some transfer rolls and possibly some printing plates were rCcovd. Sind Water1ow's presses used copper plates and Perkins 3acon's presses used steel plates, new plates had to be ,made to fit the Waterlow presses. In order to lay down the new plates , new guide marks were added to the salvaged die. Which is the reason for the compass marks and locator marks each side of the image. The reason for the hole in the die is not known , but almost all Speculation has it that Waterlow proofs have similar holes . . The T locator the dies these holes were used for storing narks at the middle of the short side also appear on proo~s by w. W. Sprague's Perkins Bacon Works. The short dash at the tip the image is the locator mark of the original °erkins 3 a c o n Company. arge die proofs of all but the 4w and 7y are known to have been The Waterlow proofs are frequently produced by Waterlow . misidentified as Perkin Bacon proofs by dealers and auction The compass marks and especially the hole are sure describers . fire identifiers of the Waterlow proofs. In addition t_a the large die proofs, small die proofs are known of the 3c, 4¢, 5 8c, 1O and 4w adult princess. The small die proof of the 4 little princess is the only proof known of this value. These seven proofs were found by Robson Lowe in some old fibs from the Waterlow archives . The condition of tnese seven is dreadful. They are ugly, dirty, creased, and most have a notch cut from the upper right margin where the cylinder number was removed. The number in the lower left is Water low's die number . Page 2 NEWFIE NEWSLETTER January/February 1991 When John Ayshford wrote up the Water low records for the Newfoundland printings in his THE LAST STAMPS OF NEWFOUNDLAND, it was noted that some of the denominations are known used prior to the first recorded printing in February 1942. These have become known as the 31itz issues (see Newfie Newsletter No. 23, May/June 1989). In fact the actual first day of use of all the last Uefinitives, except for the 4C adult princess (Scott no. 269), is not known. The following list has been tabulated from several sources. The most inportant being George Sloane's column which appeared in STAMPS magazine during the 1930's and 1940's. Frequently, Mr. Sloane only indicated that a particular value had appeared. When this occurs, the notation prior to xx xxx xx appears in the EARLIEST REPORTED DATE column and the data listed is the STAMPS magazine edition date in which Mr. Sloane's calumn appeared. Any member with earlier dates is ask to send fiat information to your Newsletter editor.
