  1. This vignette has always been known as Cheffer's first stamp but the proof when seen in the larger view seems finer than the actual stamp. I can't see any details that are different between the two so Dupont's signature could mean that he helped with the stamp or alternatively, he may have simply have had to approve Cheffer's work. Don't you love these little mysteries?
    Thanks for the info on the 1908 stamp. Gibbons don't list the engraver, only the printer.
