I picked up this quartet today.







I think I have another of the 1610, but I can't locate it. Have a few others.

Often referred to as offset, but the proper term is set-off.

All too often I see stamps that were stuck together and puled apart leaving ink and traces of paper on the back offered as set-off.

Notice too that the multi-color Americana stamps just involved one color.

That is also when multiple colors show up (not counting the stamps printed in several colors simultaneously).
