The 3R flaw occurs on position #39 of the sheet with PN 2 in the top right corner. Note the right frame line flaw too.

I had no success in finding the 4R flaw (and I did look at several hundred right ears ...)

Heads up! An ear-y story. I look forward to "hearing" more.

Long live our flyspeckers! I'm not up to doing it myself, but I do like this kind of stuff.

I went through all my sheets/panes of 4 Rub stamps and did not find this specific flyspec. I got couple "broken left ears", but they "broken" in different way, not like the one at the beginning of this thread.

239 - is it or is it not?


Please note that it has the same other "specs" - a dot on the base of "2", a small light spec between "1" and the head. So it appears that it's not an oddity but a consistent flaw.
