Zeppelin double print or plate shift?


I just wanted to see if I could get a consensus on this "sometimes" described "double print" on the 10k purple 1931 commemorative. Lehmnkuhl cites Lucanc? for his proposed "double print", but apparantly Michel didnt agree many years ago, calling it a plate shift. Anyone have any opinions? Common? Not so common? I came across these 10 years ago or so and havent seen any since. Opinions please?:hoho

Do you have an example of a 'normal' printing which you could show?

It is pretty common color shift. It is not a double impression. For some reasons more than half of the stamps of this issue has this particular shift in various levels of severity. From my experience it is almost more difficult to find a stamp WITHOUT IT :).
