hi

I wonder if the Luxembourg broken frame has a higher value than the original that doesn't have a broken frame ?

Quite obvious blue spilling over onto the letters 'OUR' of the country's name on the left.

It is a terrible scan and not clear if it is an error or just someone being creative with a crayon.

Thanks NSK. I saw the blue blob but did not see that as a broken frame line. Now to me it looks more like a flood to the left of Mary but that be caused by a "broken frame dam inundation."

Yeah, it is more like a broken dyke than frame line.
It used to be part of the Netherlands, but they did not experience many floods.

NSK, I believe you intended the word dike, meaning, a bank of earth constructed to control water : levee.

Your spelling while an accepted variation comes with huge, oceanic proportions of current day political baggage.

To better understand the current day differences, check out this 1976, San Francisco origin, founded, legitimate organization: dykesonbikes.org which describes its history as:
Quote:
In 1976 a small group of 20 - 25 women motorcyclists gathered at the head of the San Francisco Pride Parade and, unbeknownst to them, a tradition began. One of these women coined the phrase "Dykes on Bikes«" and the San Francisco Chronicle picked it up and ran with it. For the next several years, riders just showed up and rodeŚno formal organization or registration. It was this way for several years until the middle to late 1980s. However, as SF Pride became more structured and our numbers kept growing, the need to organize Dykes on Bikes« became necessary; thus, the Women's Motorcycle Contingent (WMC) was born.. However, in the press and LGBT culture, we continued to be known as Dykes on Bikes«.


How legitimate? The US Supreme Court accepted and considered a friend of the court (Amicus) brief for the 2016 term case, Lee vs. Tam, which involved a US patent office case in which the unanimous SCOTUS allowed a musical group to trademark their band's self-describing name The Slants. The full decision in Joseph Matal, Interim Director, United States Patent and Trademark Office, Petitioner v. Simon Shiao Tam is here:

https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinio...293_1o13.pdf

Simon Tam, lead singer of the rock group "The Slants," chose this moniker in order to "reclaim" the term and drain its denigrating force as a derogatory term for Asian persons. Tam sought federal registration of the mark "THE SLANTS." It took SCOTUS but he won.

Edit: To correct autocorrect to "intended."

Nope. Other side of the Atlantic. It is dike that is the variant. I am aware of the meaning in American slang, but that is no reason to start writing it differently.

I suppose we will await the posting of a clear scan of the 'error' stamp. It is difficult to say anything about it from a picture of another stamp.
