Thanks, Dianne. Yes, I have always found that the sanitized images in catalogues and studies a bit unhelpful, and it helps to see an image of the complete stamp. Often there is a subsidiary flaw that nails the identification where the main flaw is common to two or more positions. The BW 92(4)e/(3)f above is a case in point but as yet that is still unresolved. But I have benefitted from more experiences flaw-masters and at BSAP in a number of cases during the life of this topic. This
Frank.
