Hi everyone!

It's been a long time since I've posted on the forums here. Took quite a long time off from collecting but am now back into it and came across a bizarre block of #1203 Dag Hammarskj÷ld stamps. In the picture below the first block has the yellow plate number 27275 printed upside down or inverted.

While the block below has the yellow plate number 27282 printed the right way.

Has anyone else seen this? Is this normal or some sort of an EFO?

Thanks for your help everyone!

Peter,

I understand the stamp was purposely inverted by the postmaster so my question is why is yellow plate number 27282 not inverted?

Thank you.

Because the stamps with plate 27282 are Scott 1203, the original non-error stamp, no white around the building. The top block is Scott 1204, the error stamp, with two of the three varieties, white to the right of the building and white on both sides of the building.

You can see a similar plate block with the yellow plate # inverted in the 2016 Durland catalogue.

You can also use the plate number tool on Stamp Smarter: http://stampsmarter.com/features/Pl...ockView.html and find that plate 27282 is listed
