Hello everyone,This booklet appears to have been printed with no gum. Is this what's referred to as "dull gum"? There's obvious miscut and perforation errors,do these type of errors increase the value? I appreciate the input, Thanks, Jonathan

Individual missed perfs (blind perfs) are pretty common, and qualify as a curiosity.

Can't speak to the gum.

Cheers,

Gum is almost invisible - yes, it is dull gum.

Back in those days if you bought a book of stamps without gum I would have taken them back to the post office and had them exchanged

Awesome, thank you gentlmen. So,what we have is a blind perf that is classified as a curiosity with
dull gum. Nice little mix, thanks

Flipacoin, I do not think it is a blind perf. The perfotation is totally missing - I think it is a broken perforator pin. It is also not very unusual, but some folks do collect those as curiosities. Value? Only to the fellow that collects them I suppose.
