Saw this during fly specking. The right one seems to be missing a only one claw. Someone was clipped a little close. Interesting.



Normal Claw



Short Claw

Cool.

It kind of looks like the curved claw has been wiped out but it could also be missing ink kind of thing in the printing.

Now I have to search for some here.

Hi Puzzler,

I thought it may have been scuffed, but couldn't see any paper damage. Thanks for checking ... I'll keep looking as these stamps seem pretty popular and keep popping up in various kiloware collections.

I had a quick look and mine must still be all in many kiloware packages I have from over the years. None in the off paper France so far anyway. I will keep an eye out for any. The hunt is on.
