Always a conundrum when asking opinions on color errors, I'm basically looking for a or a on whether to send these off for a cert. I've had them set aside for a few years and recently re-discovered them and now I'm curious about whether they may be errors.

Richard Nazar, in The Plate Number Coil Catalog, wrote "This error was confirmed by the BEP to be an 'error of color,' which occurred when black ink was mistakenly loaded into the blue ink fountain. This resulted in the union (field of stars) of the flag being printed in black ink instead of the normal blue. No mint examples have been reported. A used pair from sleeve 9 exists with the plate number on the right stamp. Another used single was found in a mixture, which is tied to a piece by a violet-black United Way slogan cancel. On all reported examples, the field of the flag was lightly printed, which makes the black ink appear gray."

The first pic is a known pair with plate number 9. The second is a scan of my stamps. Thanks in advance for any and all opinions.

Walkman, all of the stamps shown have a blue field where the stars are. You found Richard Nazar's website - he shows an example of the error. Most of the stamps I see above are EFO's, they seem to be underinked.
Sending this thing in for grading would be a waste of money in my opinion.

here, here. While a nice find and thanks for the info on these, blue in the black, black in the blue, error, I would save these or list them as an 'error' with all the info provided, and any amount offered, I would take the money and run, and I mean run like there's no tommarrow, and fast-good luck..
