Phosphor Band Shifts

This section contains phosphor band shift errors resulting in either misplacement of the phosphor bands e.g now a side band rather than a centre band or a change in the number of phosphor bands e.g now two bands instead of three or band omitted varieties. There are many issues where BROAD BAND varieties are listed and the position of the broad band can vary e.g left, right, centre etc. Some positions are scarcer than others.

In order to clarify the position on some of the items the position of the band(s) has been superimposed on the image.  This band superimposition has been achieved by manipulating the scanned image and not by interfering with the stamp. The stamps are all FINE UNMOUNTED MINT.
