Here is a TA25a with the stamp design seemingly surrounded on three sides by misregistered inscribed lines. There is no preprinting paper fold. What is going on with this stamp?

No need to feel silly, we all have brain freeze at times. I posted a request along the lines of, "where is this city in Alaska" forgetting about the proper period Alaska map not 8 feet from my computer in the stamp room.

So will you soak 'em or keep them together for the story they created?

I regularly find two stamps adjoined when I am scanning my stamps
Sometimes just barely a whisker of double perfs is the hint.
Don't sweat it, have a gigggle.

Thanks for the uplifting comments! I consider myself an advanced collector, at least in some areas, but this is one to laugh about.

I've already separated them and have two perfectly normal TA25's.
