The most controversial of the Large Queen Re-entries is the so-called Major Re-entry on the 15¢ value. Some have questioned that it is even a re-entry, as it more closely resembles a slip print. However, slip prints are not constant plate varieties, whereas the 15¢ major re-entry is indeed constant. Adding to the mix, though, is the fact that there appear to be examples showing differing strengths of the doulbing.
