Just got this one. Your drunk Uncle Sam, or at least the inspector was. Colors shifted, miscut and die cuts shifted. It was recently in Linn's.

Bookbndrbob - that is a perforation shift.
It's a different type of shift error (vs color misregistrations), and is typically a more common occurrence. Cool though.

Eyeonwall - awesome! I think that one is going to be sought after over time.
I missed the article in Linn's...

Or a slightly different perspective of ink registration ... tagging shift errors on block-tagged stamps:

Christmas 1968, Scott 1363. Tagging shifted upward by about 1/4 inch. Same item in normal light and short-wave UV.



Tagging shifted half a stamp to the left. The left column shows a perfectly "split tagging", while the right column shows only half tagging. Portion of a used 2x5 plate strip in normal light and short-wave UV.



Christmas 1969, Scott 1384. Top row with normal and quadruple-split tagging. Bottom row with horizontal or vertical shifts to produce split tagging. Again, normal and UV light.

It's a good question what happened to quality control? The same issue applies to the service we receive from mail delivery. Just got a Christmas card yesterday that was mailed December 11 from California. Lately I see items delivered to the wrong state, not even close. It reminds me of when I moved to Bosnia (Sarajevo) and some of my things were "Shanghaied to Shanghai" - literally someone sent those things an extra how many ever miles before they finally arrived weeks later.

I sell cremation urns and I had one that got shipped all the way to Australia and then redirected to the proper address in Hawaii! 4 weeks later. no explanation from USPS. This is quite common. I have one right now going to Canada from Chicago and it is sitting in the Miami postal facility for 3 weeks. Why did this go south to Florida to ship north??

It went to Florida because of a hardware problem on the package sorter. The maintenance of all the mail equipment has been lacking due to people out with Covid quarantines.
