Stamps (Philately)/US 1622 error

Advertisement


Question
Right side of Independence Hall shows only 1/3 of building.  One unused stamp together attached to others in a sheet missing about 10 stamps.

What is a range of values?  If interested I will try to send you a picture.

Answer
Hi George,
Thanks for the question,
George, without seeing the actual stamp/s it is a little difficult to tell exactly what you have. My best guess is that it is either underinked, or perhaps a random piece of paper was covering the area during printing and later fell off. This might be of interest to collectors of EFO's (Errors, freaks and oddities). In either case errors/freaks such as these are not extremely valuable and usually retail in the $3-$10 range for the one stamp depending on the extent of the misprint. It is desirable to keep some of the normal stamps around it attached. I hope this helps, but if you want to do a follow-up with a picture I could be more specific.
Thanks again for the question,
Mike
