Hello All

I have a plate block of scott #1431 Antarctic.
My book shows the ' 8c ' in red.
But my block has the ' 8 ' in red and the " c " in blue.
The scan below is the same for all four stamps.
What is the scott number for this ?
If this is this an error, what is this type of error called?
What is the value ?

Thanks for any info.
htx

EFO, error, freak, oddity. Not listed in my catalogue as a known error, but the 8c should be in red.

Is it possible to post a blow-up of the "c" by itself? I think the blue plate is shifted too much to the left

Giori press anomaly - basically the same as thread above.

On an error-freak-oddity scale, this is a low end oddity at best.

HTx, Your scans show what happened - the blue plate has moved over the "8". As mentioned above this is fairly normal for the Giori presses although your stamps look like it was supposed to be that way. It may be worth a little to someone who collects EFO's but no one is going to get rich!
