Inscription on Stalingrad Souvenir Sheet of 1944 -


A lot of people know and it is listed in specialized catalogs that there are multiple types of inscription of this sheet. Recently fellow Rossica member and my coauthor for "printed" version of FlySpecker showed me the following EFO.
I am curious if anybody else has something similar. The angle of inscription approx. 5%.

It looks like image and the text were pinted separately. Probably two-pass process. Therefore there should be all sorts of shifts of inscriptions if quality control in 1944 was not so good. I am wondering what other variations exist in people's collections. Can you publish yours here?
