After many years of searching found the "Cronin Retouch" on E Bay both in a single stamp and a large piece as illustrated.

Cronin retouch source


Jeff, the description came from Rossica. I do not have the issue citation. Was on page 90. Article entitled, Plate Flaws in the Arms Issue of 1909-1922 by Edward Wisewell, Jr.

The article above is in Rossica Journal #98/99 (1980), p. 90, but the "Cronin retouch" must have been described elsewhere.

Original citation I have found is Rossica, 1958, volume 55, page 33 by A. Cronin.

Looking through the old issues is an educational experience in Russian stamp collecting. Too bad few followed in the old guard's footsteps.
