1970 Cottages 5d Missing Grey-black. SOLD

  • Ref: QE1603132
  • Price: £275.00

Unmounted mint horizontal marginal pair with almost complete omission of Grey-black colour from stamp at left. This results in virtually all the shading being absent from walls of buildings. There are just a few remaining speckles at far right as can be appreciated when comparing with stamp at right. Most striking however is the loss of "Fife harling" inscription from stamp at left. This partial omission is recorded in SG Spec Vol.3. Pierron online cataogue describes this partial omission and suggests resulted as a consequence of a paper fold prior to printing. This example has very light gum crease to left edge of error stamp.
