I've recently inherited
a moderate-size stamp collection from a relative (in the UK) who has passed. They were not an uber-collector, but many of the stamps in the (three) volumes date back to circa the 1940s, and continue through to the early 2000s, inclusive of dozens upon dozens of first day issues.
I am due to pick up the stamp collection tomorrow, after which time I will post an image of the particular stamp that I am posting about, however my relative left a note with the collection to indicate that they had acquired a "misprinted" version of the GB stamp issued in 1966 featuring Jodrell Bank. This was, I understand, released as part of a set highlighting British Technology at the time.
I'm yet to see exactly what the nature of the misprint is (I will know more tomorrow, obviously), but my relative apparently bought this stamp from the shop at Jodrell Bank itself where a small number were being advertised and sold as misprinted versions.
I have searched online and, whilst I can find numerous examples of misprinted GB stamps, I cannot find any information relating to this particular error.
Having no knowledge or expertise of stamp collecting myself, I intend to take this collection to a specialist auctioneer to obtain a valuation, but I wondered in the first instance if anyone on this forum had any knowledge of the misprinted Jodrell Bank stamp, its value, and whether it is known about/sought by collectors? *** Edited by Staff - Please review the rules that you agreed to when you registered. ***
