Doctor Blade Flaws

Bargain of the decade

Today I am going to offer some brilliant ( unique errors) for sale.

A second picture of the complete panes will be shown below.

On offer are:

Four 10p booklets Gibbons cat number FA2 inscribed March 1976.

These booklets show a nice horizontal doctor blade flaw in the form of a green line in the same colour that is used to print the 6p stamps. This flaw occurs as the result of either a dirty doctor blade or more realistically a bit if grit deposited itself on the blade from the 6p cylinder during the printing process.

You will notice the ½p stamps are overprinted with the green line in different positions.

Pictures: From left to right

1/ The flaw cuts across the top of the perforations and the stamps also a feint line in the top of the margin

2/ Again Two lines one on the margin and one a bit lower down which affects the stamps just below the perforations

3/ The two lines are dropped by a few mm and the bottom line cuts directly across the top ½p stamps below the perforations

4/ Which is a great example shows just one horizontal flaw across the centre of the stamps.

These booklets are on offer @ £100GBP for the 4, to the first person that contacts me (Postage & Packing will be free, if you wish to pay via PayPal however I do ask that you add £5.00 to the cost this will cover their charges. email me
