Hi hornet. Nice example of 44a PF V!

Here is another one from the "Pfennig" series. This one is Mi # 42 PF III on two different colors. Plate flaw is "white line through the right '2' in denomination '20' (four types)". The flaw appears to extend to the 'G' on the left stamp.

Both are expertiized by Jaeschke-Lantelme. Left stamp is "medium- to bright violet-ultramarine" (a), and right stamp is "dark ultramarine" (c).

Thanks hornet.

Here is a modern one. It is the October 29, 1974 120 pf Kirchner German Expressionist painting. Mi #823 PF I has a "shortened 'T' on 'BUNDESPOST' (field 25, part of print run)".

And, here is is one I found yesterday. It is the August 14, 1975 Stamp Day issue (Mi #866). The Schantl BRD/Berlin Plattenfehler Katalog lists two plate flaws which are not included by Michel. This one is "field 1, part issue, break in the black, oval frame line, upper right".

Hi I had done a reply so if two show up I am sorry. I have purchased a lot of plate error and similar stamps from a very old established collection. I can post some of these if people are interested but here is one that I find interesting. Described as: BERLIN 543 DA heller Punkt in Kopfhöhe ** im waag.Paar - Kabinett - C565 Kabinett is his top grade of condition. I have lost the translation but I think the variety is the white dot in the field on the first stamp. Someone who reads better German can translate.... PS I found my translation: BERLIN - MiNr. 543 with pressure deviation on the left stamp of the horizontal pair (light dot on the right next to the head near the stamp margin) - mint never hinged - Kabinett - catalog value: ??? M € PPS I was a bit lazy and scanned it in its holder so the fold looking mark is tape and imperfections are in the scan. I will do better

WillUK, this is not a plate flaw (constant plate variety) of which I am aware. It could be a freak/anomaly caused by foreign matter on the paper or in the ink during the printing process, or by an inclusion in the paper.

I would examine it (front and back) under well-lit magnification.

Here is another variety that is a bit rarer I am told. The catalogue value is €100.

OLD GERMANY / WÜRTTEMBERG - SERVICE STAMPS MiNr. 132 with plate error I ("P" and "O" from "PORTO" connected by a colored line) - stamped STUTTGART - superb / cabinet condition - catalog value: at least 100.00 M €

To my eye the "error" here is probably a bit over-inking, coupled maybe with a unwiped plate. Some printers would call this "inkpull".

Hi I have looked at this in a loupe and tried to do a detailed scan enlargement at maximum capability of my home equipment. It does seem to be a spot. There is no issue with the paper - The former owner who is a major expert did describe this as being "pressure deviation" which would indicate it occurred as a one off during printing rather than being a recognised variety or plate flaw. I will try to ask him as he is a found of expertise and specialised books also...

WillUK, I hope you are not paying too much for these. The last one you posted looks like a "doughnut", a fairly common printing problem.
Also, please try to check the way you post your pictures - they are all over the place

I have sent WillUK an email explaining the image uploading paraments. The SCF image upload uses the original file name plus date. SO if you upload two images with the same file name on the same day it will overwrite the file. So the solution is to make sure you have unique image file names that you upload on the same day.

To the uninformed:

WillUk's "heart on Z" item (Mi 86 PFII) is the most desirable plate flaw to be found on this Soviet Zone stamp. Michel values it at 120 euros in mint, never hinged condition. It is a little nicer found in a strip.
