HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

50¢ Perf 12 Double-Line Watermarked Issue

There is a simple way to differentiate between the two 50¢ Violet Perf 12 1914 Issues, Scott 421 (single-line watermark) and Scott 422 (double-line watermark), without even looking at the watermark. Scott 421 almost always has printing ink offset on the gum (unless it is regummed), and Scott 422 never does. Lewis Kaufman records only nine full top and five bottom plate blocks.
