I bought a R.S.plate that has 2 transfers on it.It looks like the plate is cut in half.Both floral but do not match.Is this common and does the mistake make it worth more?

Answer
Dennis,

Wow...haven't seen that one before.  However, the only "errors" that seem to be worth anything over time are numismatic ones.  Unfortunately, errors in porcelain don't seem to hold the same level of intrigue...or value.  Very cool though...thanks for the question.
