Has anyone seen this variety of Scott #3757 (10c American Clock). Just picked up some of these stamps at the post office today and was surprised to see P5555 as a plate number, as the Plate Number Stamp Society only refers to P1111 through P4444 as the known plate numbers for this 2003 issue.

Does this mean there was a subsequent reprinting of this stamp?

That would be my guess.

Another example of this stamp, with what looks to be a case of overinking in the upper center of the stamp, as shown:



A close up suggests that it may be an ink blotch not readily noticable because of the dark colors used in the border:

I was just flyspecking another one of these stamps and came up with this odd looking flaw (possibly attributed a piece of dust or debris falling into the machinery when the stamp was printed)? The only stamp in a sheetlet of 20 with the flaw:



Here's the detail:

Nothing odd about it, it's a bird turd.

I've been interested in fly-specking this particular issue only because I was buying a few sheets of them recently at my local post offices to use along with other scrap postage for first class mail use. In one situation, a post office only had one sheet left (which I bought) so I later went to another post office to buy another. However, when scanning the stamps together and comparing them (both with plate number P5555), I see some distinct, yet subtle differences, namely:

1) Yellow color is deeper on left stamp.
2) Lighter green background color is lighter on left stamp.
3) Centering of stamp is higher on left stamp.



Although this may not represent anything of value, and may very well be within "accepted tolerances" according to printing standards, I find the differences rather interesting, especially since it seems to be the only definitive from this series where such varieties can easily be spotted with the naked eye.

I received the stamp on the right a few days ago. It has a die cut difference that I have not seen before on this stamp. The die cut at the top starts with a valley. All the previous examples in my collection have die cuts that start with a peak (the stamp on the left). The stamp with the die cut difference was a single on a letter, so I don't know what plate number it is from.



Are we looking at yet another reprint? P6666 anyone?

Cheers, Robert

Durland added plate P5555 in its 2010 supplement to the 2008 edition of its Standard Plate Number catalog. Someone with a more recent edition of the Durland may be able to tell if they are listing P6666 yet.

I adjusted the title of this thread to show that we're up to P6666 for the highest plate numbers (so far) recorded for this issue.

I have the 2012 Durland. It documents up to P5555 only.

Does the Durland catalog make any value adjustment for P1111 through P5555 or are they all of presumably equal value, as they were printed in vast quantities?

The bird turd variety would be a reality if you can find several more exact examples in that same position on other sheets. The variety would then be worth quite a bit more especially with the catchy nickname. Good luck!

Durland 2012 values all Scott 3757 plate blocks from all positions at $1.00.
