Here are two more common plate flaws from the "Farewell" series. These are Michel #s 123 PF I and 123 PF II. PF I is a dot behind the "N" of "BAYERN", and it occurs on positions 40, 85 and 90. Note that the "D" of the "Deutsches" overprint has an elongated streak at the top of the letter. There are Michel-cataloged varieties of the "D", but this is not one of them.

Plate flaw 123 II is a white triangle over the rocks above the "N" of "BAYERN". It occurs on positions 43, 48, 93 and 98.

Hi,

Nice example!

Here I go back to Nr.278X (Nr.162). Went to my archive and extract a PF IV from another position. In this case Position 15 (Just behind the overprint). As you can see, Position 64-65 are normal.

Best regards

Hornet

Nice one Cupram!

Here is one from the unwatermarked "Germania" series of 1902. It is Mi 69 PF I, "first 'E' in 'DEUTSCHES' missing (bottom) line." It occurs on positions 35 and 90.

Hi,

You have position 90, position 35 doesn't have the break at right of the left 3. A classic PLF!

Salutations

Hi,

As Rich60 on his last picture, I have something similar as a printing accident. NDP Nr.5, and a funny thing in the design you can see the little dog on the lower right corner :).

Hi,

@ bookbndrbob, strangely, it is a hard to find one.

Here back to Nr.162/278 X, Position 25 on two types of sheet.

Thanks for posting the PF, Hornet. Of course, I had to check my stock on this one...and I "came up empty".

Here is another modern one. This Michel #2007 PF I, from The UNESCO World Heritage Sites set of 1997. Flaw is "black spot on the plant leaf, lower right, field 7, part of the print run".
