I started collecting stamps last year. I'm working on filling the Mystic you S stamp albums. I have a question and maybe someone has an answer. I just purchase a coil of forever flags from the post office today. There were no die cuts between each stamp. Basically one long row of 100 stamps with no die cuts. Has anyone come across this and is the unusual?

Thanks

You may have an error. Can you post a picture?

Sounds like an error to me. Imperforate (or, for the modern self-adhesive coils, die-cut omitted) pairs are known to exist for many U.S. coil stamps. Over the years, the number of different imperforate coil errors has become staggering. The value of these errors depends, of course, upon their frequency/rarity. Some are relatively common, numbering in the thousands & selling on the secondary market for a handful of dollars per pair. Others are quite scarce, with far fewer than a hundred imperf stamps known to exist, and selling for over a thousand dollars per pair. If the stamps you are referring to are the 2017 flags issued in January, I would guess that they will prove to be fairly common. Multiple error versions have already appeared on eBay, although it seems a bit uncertain as to whether these are from printer's waste or from stamps that were actually purchased from the USPS. Your find might suggest that, at least for some of the 2017 flags, the imperforate pairs may be legitimate.

Anthony, welcome to the forum. Again, as suggested, a picture would be nice. If possible a scan.

Here is a picture of the coil. They do have die cuts in the middle of the stamps.

Anthony, that is why we wanted a picture. This is not an imperforate example, but mis-perforated so to speak. In other words, the die cuts are shifted. It is probably still worth something over the face value though, especially if you have a plate number strip. Nice find!

By the way, could you let me know where you purchased this roll, just for the record?

Thanks for everyone's comments. I don't collect error stamps so I guess I'll put the coil on eBay and hope to get my $49 dollars back and someone who collects these would appreciate them.

Anthony, thank you. One more question if you do not mind. Somewhere on the strip of 100 should be a plate number, like B111 or something like it. Could you look and give me the number on your strip? Thank you,


Peter

Peter, the only thing was a description and item number under bar code.

Can you give me the item number? I am trying to keep the info on this variety so we can catalog it.
