Rossica Journal - 714a

RSFSR - 12/19/2010 at 12:30

In the latest Journal, there is a discussion on 714a - "There is a white horizontal line at the top of the star".

This is caused because of the misplacement of the red portion of the design relative to the dark blue.

Or am I missing something?????

Misalignment

I agree with RSFSR. Purely a misalignment of colors. Seems recently collectors are trying to create many varieties and errors out of normal printing changes. Recently a seller on E Bay is offering innumerable varieties which are purely fabrications based on normal printing frailities.
