Description:

This is generally a pretty unremarkable stamp from the 1967 British Paintings Stamp Set. It’s typically borderline worthless to a major colletcor due to its huge print run and the fact that they were frequently held onto since philately was booming during this period in history.

Nonetheless this particular stamp has an unusual flaw. Rather than having the two phosphor bands that we expetc (one at each side), this specimen instead has a broad band running to the left off centre. Curious indeed.

This error is unusual enough (or uninteresting enough) to not have been entered into the Stanley Gibbons Concise catalogue. After an emails to the experts, and a short wait while the message got to who it needed to be, I received an encouraging reply from the esteemed Editorial Assistant Lesley Brine. She let me know that it was entered into their “Great Britain Specialised catalogue Vol 3 Pre-decimal 2019 edition” (which I unfortunately have yet to acquire) with the number W121e. Catalogue value was estimated to be £8.00.

Besides this the stamp itself is in good condition with only a minor flaw with the lower right corner. Whilst it would scarcely retail at the full catalogue price given this, it is nonetheless an interesting specimen that demonstrates an unusual flaw.
