Yet another plate flaw?


Looks like my last NEW PLATE FLAW? posting didn't go anywhere. What's about this one. It's Scott #27. Look at the upper right ending of "7". The right stamp is with a sharp "thorn" (normal?), the left is without (not "normal"?).

It is hard to see from small picture. Can it be just overinked? Can you email me (in order not to overload web site with large scans) a picture with high resolution (600 dpi) of this corner ?

Oh my! No one has responded that it is listed in the "latest Russian catalogs." This must be a true rarity if the Russians missed it?

VBG - :-))

May be Russians missed this "true rarity in Gary's words"
but Americans did not looked at small details at all - see here:

Description
A truly one of a kind type of stamp! This stamp has a picture of likely their Defense Minister on the stamp, along with a strategic missile! A great stamp to illustrate the hostilities of the Cold War era. The stamp has a very light stamp on the bottom left corner and has never been hinged. The picture and edges are awesome! The stamp does have a small bit of wrinkling upon feel, but you cannot notice by eye from the front of the stamp. Being somewhat of a novice, I admit to not knowing the value. But, I would have to say the stamp is fairly rare, as with the heat between our two countries at that time it's hard to believe we would have anything from them! "

OK, OK... Americans, Russians, who cares.. Yes, majority of us need to do a day job to be able to spend money on stamps... Overnight response sometimes may be a little problem. See below. I did some homework on this one. It is an overinking from my point of view and not a plate variety. Picture shows it why...
