The stamps shown here illustrate the "DOT" variety. The dot appears in the upper right portion of the stamp just below the value (14). The stamp on the right has this variety.

ET in catalogs


Joined "E-T" variety is listed in Lobachevsky catalog as #58 Ka (or "Ba" in translation). Lobachevsky considers it rather common and prices it @ 85 points (vs. 40 points for regular stamp).

The problem with this variety is that the gap on the normal stamp is so narrow that it's easy to confuse for joined variety (see below - the leftmost stamp with a "normal" gap, the second (from left) is with a "good" gap, the third one with a "huge" gap, and the righmost with no gap [joined]).

May this be "deformed 14 top left" as given by Michel or "broken circle and deformed 14 top left" as given by Ebnet?

Some additional information ... the 'dot' variety occurs on both the vertically laid and horizontally laid paper in position #23 ... (1st pane of 25 stamps, center stamp).
