This possibilities are virtually endless. I have an entire stockbook devoted to mistakes and these are only the shiny gums except the 17 cent. The dull gums are even worse!



1/2 CENT denomination slightly shifted to right and left.



1 CENT missing in a few rows.



1 CENT missing top rows.



2 CENT missperf



2 CENT shift down and to the right into the frsme.




3 CENT printed on each stamp 3 times. I actually bought this is a local post office.




4 CENT printed on each stamp 3 times mostly.



4 CENT underinked



4 CENT sheet where the top row denomination was meant for the bottom row of the sheet above.



5 CENT fold over showing gutter and a few stamps fron the sheet below.



6 CENT missing tip of '6' on upper right stamp




7 CENT shifted down and to the left



8 CENT block missing the denominations in rows 2 and 3



10 CENT stamp on right frame under inked.



This is a fake, but it look kinda neat!



11 CENT denomination shifted up.



13 CENT denomination shifted up and to the left. Also, denomination under inked.


17 CENT denomination shifted up



30 CENT denomination shifted up into the frame.



50 CENT denomination shift up and to the right.



The 'D' is completely missing in position 90.
Positions 46 and 52 the 'R' is broken and 'D' broken in positions 66, 75, 78, 83, 85, 94 and 95.
A number of letters are filled in. For example the 'D' in position 9 and the 'R' in position 39.
Also, parts of the '1' is filled in in positions 79 and 89.
The rubber plate was a mess!




5 DOLLAR showing various denomination shifts. Notice the color difference of the stamps of the top two plate blocks.

Who would like to see the same thing for the dull gums? Of course without the 1/2, 8, 11, and 13 cents. Hmmm...

postagedueguy, thanks for sharing. Thats pretty awesome. I especially get a kick out of the missing prints. I find it interesting that they would make it thru any sort of quality control.

Since these were only utility stamps and not used or seen by the general public there was apparently only minimal if any quality control.

Well... all of them of course

Plus a myriad of stamp shows, dealer shops, the philatelic sales division in D.C., and online auctions. It take time to accumulate 12,000 plate blocks and sheets - 45 years to be exact.

I like the above post. I have a exhibit titled 'shifty postage dues' which shows the same thing.

On eBay now there are j99 dull gum sheets with the crazy 50 shifts all over...unbeknownst to seller, imo... I don't buy this material but just came across it. Not sure valuation on this material,but it's asking just over face.

I just did an eBay search using J99 Postage Due and it popped right up.
Really poor pictures, though.
