Plating Canada’s 1/2d Queen Victoria, the latest BNAPS Handbook, shows the massive effort that can go into plating a particular stamp. Advancements in technology in the last 25 years have given philatelists new tools that can not only create clear, sharp and enlarged images but also allow re-entries, constant plate flaws and other plating aspects to be marked so they can be easily seen by interested collectors. BNAPS thanks James H. Watt and Michael D. Smith for their work on this book and for preparing the printing file
