Found this in my grandfather's collection. Seems to be around 1905?
Anyways it has a reverse image of the stamp on the gum side. Anyone know anything about this?

This is called 'set-off', caused by the sheet of stamps printed prior was still wet

So it is collectible but not valuable.

A small premium for this but not expensive, yes. It's an EFO and not a true error. Still nice!

Yeah, Germania, I've noticed that. It's a wonderful example of set-off.

I wish someday I could become a real boy get an avatar of my own!
