Plate flaw?


Is it a deformed frame or just a damaged stamp?

Looks like plate flaw.

Similar to Lobachevskiy # 47 Ka

Yes, but on the other side of the frame.


Anybody has a similar one?

Lobachevsky does not mention this particular flaw at all.

The stamp appears entire and not damaged.

Nice find!!

Looks very interesting, but to declare it a plate flaw (and not a EFO), we need to go through our collections and duplicates and find at least another one with the same "defect". Let's start digging! After that, another nice thing to do is to find a full sheet or partial sheet with salvage
to identify position. I am going back to my boxes with duplicates...

GOOOOOD!


Thanks, Greg;
I hope others will follow.
Meantime I'll keep considering it a damaged stamp or EFO at best.
