SIGRIST, C.

INFORMATION

When, in 1929, Sigrist was asked to re-engrave four values of the Newfoundland Publicity issue for Perkins, Bacon & Co, he had to follow the engravings of the original De La Rue plates as closely as possible, yet some differences may be distinguished. On the 5c the foliage is without spurs and the cross bars of the telegraph pole touch the frame. The scrolls have sharply upturned leaves, the numerals are thicker and there is no full stop after St. John's. The left torch on the 10c ends in a double flame and again there is no full stop after St. John's.
