Updated - The Medallion Issue of 1932-1935 - Part 1

I have updated the first post on the 1932-1935 Medallion issue to correct an error that was brought to my attention by Mr. Julian Goldberg, a philatelist in Toronto. Apparently the 1c stamp which Unitrade classifies as a flat printing #195d, is actually not a flat plate printing at all, but is a dry rotary printing.

You can read about it in more detail by clicking the following link:

  2. I believe that Julian has stated that he believes that all of the 1,2 and 3 cent stamps were actually printed by the Rotary Press method. The discrepancy lies as to whether they were wet or dry prints!
