I see unusual designs around the number 4 inside the circle and wanted to get additional opinions on this.

All the perforations are matching and dimensions with the regular 4c.

Thank you.

Hi Dusko, and welcome to the forum. Those spots are not designs but a lack of ink in those places

This stamp is part of a series called baby banknotes, because they were printed by American Bank Note and they were smaller than the last preceding series of stamps were. There were 66,759,475 4 cent small banknote stamps issued.

Hi Dusko,

Welcome to the Forum.

Under-inking is not considered an error but fall into the freaks and oddities area.

For most issues, freaks are not common and can be interesting in a collection if you write up how and why they are different from a normal example.

Generally the more spectacular the difference, the more interesting they are.

For more information search for "EFO".
