Hello all Stamp Masters,

What is your opinion of this Prussia 10sg Stamp?
It seems to have been printed entirely inverted.
Is such an error documented?
Is it an error?
Any help is appreciated!

These are official stamps that were printed on the backside to prevent reuse. The so called "L÷wenberg-Verfahren".

LordInVader, because this stamp was designed to self-destruct when soaked off a cover, off cover used stamps are usually in poor condition. Yours looks to be particularly exceptional. Be careful with it, it is very delicate.

Now you need to acquire its companion, the 30 Sgr.

@Germania
Thanks for the advice!
Do you know whether unused stamps are rare? Or is this a more common type?

My old Michel says it's no difference used/unused with the 10 Sg, but quite a big one with the 30 Sg.
