This is Mi. #1748-1749 B. I`ve checked Michel 2005 and this error is not listed. In Romanian Stamp Catalogue 1974 error is listed
#1837 1.2, valued used or mint 3X basic value. I`ve checked eBay too and found 4 listings all refering to Michel nr. (surprisingly price ranging from 35$- single to 170$ MNH ?? - so check your Romanian albums)
I don`t have a Scott catalogue and I wonder if this error is listed or not?

Wadmalatz, I just happened to have the Scott 2013 catalogue to hand. This one is Scott 1245 from 1958. Listing is Unwatermarked, Litho printing and exists both Perf.13.5x14 and Imperf. like yours. No mention of any errors. Values are USD$3.75MNH and $0.55 Used for the pair plus label so Scott isn't much help to you unfortunately. Don't have it in my collection to check.

Thanks!
Unfortunately Romania didn`t issued regularly stamp catalogues (1974 black&white/ reedited in 1982/ than 2006 in colour), so many constant flaws or errors are not listed in major catalogues.
By the way, errors are encircled: 1) forked end of stick on women`s shoulder
2) `O` and `L` in `MOLDOVA` connected with a dot (label)

These ERRORS are listed by 2008 Romfilatelia Price List , page 29, nr. 462g , Unused 77 Lei ( abt 25 Euro ) Used 49.50 Lei ( abt 14.50 Euro )
So these prices were valid at the beginning of 2008 !

Thanks March! I`ve checked a 2007 Price List, same price.
In the meantime I`ve did some research and found an interesting and useful article in `Almanah Filatelic 1985` by Iosif Micu- `Erori si varietati din perioada 1952-1962` page 145. (Errors and varieties of the 1952-1962 issues). Here he signals some (guess minor) varieties too (not mentioned in the so far the most detailed Romanian Stamp Catalogue `74).
I found two of the mentioned varieties, highlighted in green circle:
1. -Man / named `opinci cu pinteni`= `sandal with spur` - this variety occurs on sheet in the 2 stamp of the 6th row:




2. -Woman / flaw (coma) between 7 and 5, appears on 5th stamp 6th row:





Many more interesting varieties mentioned in the article (ex: flaw in form of a drill bit on left trouser-leg etc.).
