In browsing I have found this one which to my novice eye looks to be an error. Opinions please.

Soaking the stamp off its envelope paper has caused a change in the appearance of the phosphor coating/tagging. This is normal.

This is not soaking.Printing error. To me the blue should be on all surface. Good catch.

You can clearly see the crown below the whitish area. That is a sign the blue was applied to all of the surface. The phosphor bars were applied over the primary ink. It would be the first error on a Machin where ink is missing between the phosphor bars when the bars were printed later or the error coincides with the exact, somewhat shifted area on which the phosphor bars were not printed.

Nothing of the sort. The greenish blue omitted is in the head, not in the phosphor bars.

Here is a "side by side" comparison of the stamps in question. The mint stamp is the normal, as is the original posting.
