I'm missing this sheet and it doesn't seem to appear in for-sale albums often! So I am researching. I see many perfectly square sheets around, but a fair number where the corners look snipped. Is this as-issued? Is it considered a negative, or would anyone be ok with this over a fully square sheet? I captured a small images from an example I saw online:



TIA,

Nick

Yes. Natural from production.
The Scott Specialized explains this. To paraphrase, the press sheet of 4 souvenir sheets had diagonal clips at the upper right and upper left, thus half of all souvenir sheets will show this.

I'd like to add: As far as I know, there is no premium (or penalty) for a sheet with or without the clipped corner. If YOU prefer one over the other, that's another thing, of course.

Thanks guys, I get it now. First one I saw I thought was damaged. But I was seeing too many like this for it not to be something "real". I'm all clear on this now. And yes, I will likely still lean towards the full corner. Unless I find the other type in an example and price I like!

I've read this is referred to as a notch that was helpful in the printing process. Perhaps to orient the paper properly. I'd prefer a copy with this over one trimmed down to a square.

I price (and routinely get) about a $25 (hinged) or $50 (NH) premium for 630's with full selvage & no "notch." Truly sound 630's -- those that haven't been trimmed down somewhere, don't have a notch (although I don't consider that a fault) and don't have significant perf seps or NGC's are actually quite scarce!.

I actually prefer the notch and coincidentally my copy has a notch. The notch on the sheet shown by OP looks more like a tear to me. Appears to have a very ragged edge
