This is the strangest "Tin Shed" I have seen. Does anyone else have an idea. Their is no creasing front or back of the stamp so it is a true printing flaw.

Edit- Can see a lot of bright red bits in the white areas of the print.

Hi KGV collector
you certainly have an impressive collection of Georges
I wish and hope that one day I find something as impressive.
Could it be a fault from one of the substituted Cliches?
Regards

Thanks for the kind words Horamakhet.

Well what can be said about Tin Sheds. If a major looking flaw is not in ACSC it is a tin shed sadly.

I don't think it can be a tin shed flaw, because the postmark isn't affected where the flaw occurs. For a tin shed, I'd expect the postmark to have lifted off along with the ink of the stamp.

This looks like some sort of paper fold prior to printing to me.

The term Tin Shed means in my book that it is a one off printing flaw. No matter when the ink came off the stamp, being while printed or some time after printing. The flaw has the cancel over it so it is locked in time. The stamp has no sign of a crease at any level. It is a very interesting Tin Shed.

Well, as I understand it, 'Tin Shed flaw' should properly refer to flaws caused when stamps were printed over over flecks of gum adhering to the surface of the paper. (This happened on paper rather haphazardly gummed, under wartime conditions, locally in Australia.) The gum dissolves and carries away the printing, and any postmark, when the stamp is soaked.

If the surface of this stamp isn't disturbed at all, then it looks as if something fell on the printing plate and absorbed the ink. From the look of it, perhaps a small piece of string or twine.

Hi All

Since I am one who has always said that no question is stupid question, I would like to ask this, just to verify what I am seeking. My question is, on the scan that KGV Collector supplied, is the area that looks like a bad crease the variety and, is it so because you cannot feel or see an actual crease on the stamp itself??

I have heard the term "Tin Shed" variety before but never could really grasp it.

Thanks for any help.
