It is an error - misperforated. It is very collectible, since it is also a line pair. As to it's value I have no idea; you might want to check on eBay

Remember, when using eBay to determine value, check the prices on SOLD lots. Asking price (starting bid or buy it now) has no relation to market value until someone pays that price.

It is not an ERROR, it's either a FREAK or an ODDITY. There is nothing missing, just a misplaced perforation.

Thanks Glenn, but in my opinion ( which does rarely ever count ) that is a question of semantics.

As I posted in a thread last fall:


Quote:
EFO = an acronym for error, freak, oddity.
I visualize this on a scale of 1-10, let's say:
10 - error
9
8
7
6
5 - freak
4
3
2
1 - oddity
Each collector gives a mental score to any EFO item with price/value increasing accordingly up the scale. There are no set definitions, as you can see from the responses you have received so far. Some have called your stamps an error and some have not.


Owners tend to rate their items higher on the scale than bystanders would. I would rate a minor perforation shift such as yours at about a 2. Others may disagree, and probably will here shortly!

It's all subjective; beauty in the eye of the beholder and all that.

I have to agree with Glenn. It's not an error, but a desirable freak and certainly worth a premium. This does not fit the conventional definition of an error. And it is not a question of semantics any more than calling a stamp with a cancel "mint" rather than "used" is a matter of semantics.
