sure would be nice


The seller sure has some important info on flyspecks (both past and present e-bay auctions).
It sure would be nice if someone could induce him to maybe gather all this "stuff" up on his plate errors and publish it in one spot :study

His presentation on each item is greatly appreciated.:D

Plate flaws of No. 736 Pilot


Really we have 6 groups of 736 Pilot sheets with different but repeted (inside group) plate flaws. I have started to study them but did not finished yet.

Ha, funny .
Found this thread browsing.
I was the seller of all those sheets, the pain and suffering looking thru 5000 sheets……..
I quit doing it, still I kept all the scans, laziness to clean out drive…..
If some want this info I’ll cut a couple of disks, but the descriptions are long gone so images only.

Oh yeah, I forgot most were one time fly speakers, some repeated not many, but we did find some types, one was printed in Rossica under Dad (he found it), the others we never published, just thought there might not be enough interest.

This is work is not complete, sorry 3 sheets to go (maybe 4)!?!
What I mean is that the repeating plate flaws will characterize 6 or 7 sheets total with specific plate flaws for that printing.

Very nicely done. The images are top quality. I'm sure the flyspeckers will appreciate the hard work.

This is an interesting issue with color and paper varieties.

Very good information. Being in "flyspecking business" I can really appreciate amount of work to sort it out.

Now, every sheet of any stamp has individual differences. The key is not to identify all of them, but rather discover "constant varieties" within certain printing of the issue. It will be great if you can provide information on constant varieties of each of 6 types of the printing with plate positions. We will be happy to publish this information in FlySpecker if it is organized in this way.
