Corrected Map Issue of 1929-1931
The re-engraved stamp on the right shows the correct locations Cape Norman and Cape Bauld.
On January 3, 1928 Newfoundland issued a set of fifteen pictorial stamps to publicize the dominion. The low value one cent denomination featured a map on which the locations of two lighthouses in the Northwest corner of the island, Cape Bauld and Cape Norman were transposed. Between 1929 and 1931 this stamp and many others in the set were re-engraved. The error was corrected on the re-engraved one cent stamp.
