I found a new scratch in the row of the upper scratch on my template. It's
a Criger in the Criger/Davis slot.

It's a slow process because these are difficult to find. For example
all of these scratches are harder to find than a Mur'ay, nodgrass "error" ect...
and Criger/Davis is a good example to explain why.

They call them errors but they're not, it was caused by something that interfered with a letter in one of the positions for that subject on the sheet.

There is a Davis that is missing a letter like the "errors" that have been
catalogued. It's missing part of the R in AMER so it looks like AMEP.

This Davis also happens to be one of the plate scratches.

Davis and Criger occupy the same positions on this sheet.
Here is the Criger with the same scratch as the Davis "AMEP".

So to start with there is the difficulty of finding these at about the same rate
as the "error" cards and there are a few other things to factor in. The
scans have to be good enough to show the sratches and the ink in the
area of the scratch has to be dark enough.

It also has to be a Piedmont 150 back, most of the "error" cards are found
on other backs with the exception of Dopner which has only been found on a
Polar Bear back so far. I don't think a Dopner will be found any other back
because in my opinion the Polar Bears were printed separate from all the other backs.

Here are a couple of Davis Amep's with a SC150/649 back.

Here is a high resolution scan of the Davis "Amep" and Criger scratch. The top one is Davis and the bottom one is Criger.

Quite a few collectors say the hunt is the most fun and it is for me too.
I get a lot of enjoyment out of searching for and finding these.
