Hello to all,
I have come across a stamp that seems to have a error.
Sadly the stamp has lot of wear.
When looking at the stamp I get this feeling in my eyes that it is out of focus.
On closer inspection I noticed that some colors seem to be off position.
If you look you can see on the left and right that there seems to be s shift to the left of the yellow colors.
Has anyone come across this before?

This appears to be poor registration/alignment of the printing plates. It seems to be fairly common with U.S. stamps of the time period. Many of these stamps have a blurry appearance.
