1575d or block with red omit
1919b- full imperf. I have half.
2543a - untagged - impossible to find?
3384 - full pane imperf

Does that mean the 1556d you obtained for cert failed?


Any of these work?

I didn't bother to send it in for recertification. I examined it pixel by pixel and under deep magnification it appears no red is present anywhere on the stamp. The pixels in the original scan were a jpg artifact. I now own 2 1556a. :) Since I liked the 2nd one better than my first, I may try to sell my original one which isn't certified.

Regarding the 1556d, the most recent updates on tracing it - the one dealer I knew had the potential 1556var as stated in the Linn's article from the 90s. It was listed on hipstamp and was under consignment as recent as a year or two ago, so I am talking with his estate (he passed). I don't believe it sold. Awaiting word on this, though not holding my breath.

So it's so far still a dead end.

The 2543a may be even more elusive. This one could probably be sitting under people's noses but remains super difficult and before covid inspected a ton of sheets. I may need to contact every person who owns it, and have them put it under a lamp! May circle these with the EFOCC and see what pops.

Those are great stamp errors, but they would be effectively dupes for me. That first 2 way misregistration is great. The 1435b plateblock from that sheet went for $500 in Kelleher's Lang's auction. I missed the 1435d, as I somehow got distracted when that lot went live. I don't think that one is "impossible".


Maybe I will start a new space error thread that takes you through the journey of what I have.

A new thread at SCF would be nice. An article series in the EFO Collector may pull other goodies out of the woodwork.

Do you have "Blue Moon Setting, Time Exposure" on 2569/2574 pair or are you just limiting to 2568?

You know I get eBay from here :) I do appreciate your help though. The only thing more rediclous about that ink blot, is the seller thinking it's worth $135.

Yes, but threads are more interesting with images. Besides, when you say, "I got those already" then folks have a better idea about what level you are after.

Large ink splatters or smashed ink drops are not that common and space is a popular topical. Many space EFOs have out of this world prices.
