Hi Mark,

I just noticed that a set of stamps that I recently purchased have been misprinted.  I've attached a couple of photos (as a means of comparison).  Not sure if this kind of mistake is interesting to anyone, or if I should just use them as regular stamps?  Thanks for taking a look.  Mark.


It appears to be a red color shift of about one millimeter.  An error to be sure, but the market for error stamps is highly speculative.  In general, the more dramatic the error, the more an EFO (error, freak and oddity) collector is willing to pay to get it.  If you were to offer your color shifted pane of stamps on, I give it a 50/50 chance it sells for a few bucks over face value.
