Imperf 40p With Short Bars Top (S16)

During September of last year a member of the Machin Forum posted a note advising that he had acquired a left imperforate marginal pair of SG Y1705a/Deegam 400.3.1 with dramatic S16 short bands at top. Described on site "The bands are 5mm short from the top of the stamp design. Has anyone else seen one of these? CC and Deegam do not list an S16 for this issue" Some months have now passed since the original report and the owner has posted an image (see image left). A second single stamp which appears to have short bands bottom (S17) has also been reported in an imperforate vertical pair. To read the complete thread please click here
