Scott #935 [1945 3 cent U.S. Navy sailors] NH VF+ upper left plate block #23341 with dramatic fold-over and miscut / misperforation affecting the left margin. While such fold-overs cannot be considered rare or highly valuable, finding such an item on any specific stamp issue is very hard to do.

Scott #1213 SCOTT-LISTED "(vertical) pair with full horizontal gutter between": Scott 2016 value $425. [1962 5 cent gray Washington, untagged, sheet issue] NH VF full sheet with upper left plate #27307. Fold-over / prior to perforating resulted in this very rare gutter pair at the bottom left corner. The vertical gutter pair (with horizontal gutter) is VF NH and as nice an example as one could expect to find. (The terminology for this can be a bit confusing: Scott is listing the orientation of the gutter, which in this case is horizontal.) The value here is in the pair and surrounding area; the fact that it is in a full sheet is a tremendous bonus, but does not significantly increase the value. This is an extremely scarce item; since each example is the result of an individual fold-over "error", I would be surprised if more than ten examples were known to exist.

1280 [1966 2 cent Frank Lloyd Wright, tagged, shiny gum] Mint VF full sheet showing both GUTTER SNIPE at right and MISCUTTING. The right side shows the full inter-pane gutter, with part of the stamps on the next sheet to the extreme right. The right side is cut at a slight angle; the same angle is represented at the bottom cut of the sheet, cutting off the "U.S. POSTAGE" on some stamps. Upper left corner (location of plate block 32330) has a marginal fault; there is some album page adherence on the bottom row. An attractive and interesting production "freak".

1286 [1967 10 cent Pres. Andrew Jackson, tagged] NH VF full sheet with MISPERFORATION. The vertical perforations are shifted 3-4 mm to the left, cutting off the W and N on the right side of each stamp. The marginal inscriptions (plate number 34348, mail early in the day, and use zip codes) on the left side of the sheet are not in the selvage, but are ON THE RESPECTIVE STAMPS! Unlike coil issues, it is extraordinarily unusual to find sheet stamps with plate numbers actually on the stamp. This misperforation may have affected as few as one printer sheet of 400 (4 panes of 100), in which case only four may have originally existed; because the four sheet positions would thus have been packaged and distributed separately, it is very possible that this is the only remaining example. I have found a few other misperforations of this issue (but none just like this) being offered for $5 to $35 per stamp (none involved the plate number). I believe that the break-up value of this sheet is about $250 for the plate strip of 20 and $5/stamp (perhaps should be $8-10) for the other 80 stamps, totaling $650 break-up value. I offer this full sheet for HALF the break-up value.

Scott #1461a TAGGING OMITTED variety [1972 8c Olympics, Bobsledding] Upper left plate block of ten (plate numbers starting with black: 33331, 33336, 33329, 33328, 33327). NH VF, with only a very tiny spot on the edge of the top selvedge that might even be from the production. Missing-tagging varieties are generally extremely scarce. 2017 Scott has given this one a modest value of $7.50 for a single stamp, but most such items are rarely offered. As a full plate block, this is surely extremely scarce -- it is also a very nice topical item.

4481d [2010 Holiday Evergreens / Christmas booklet stamps, tall format] DIE CUTS MISSING ERROR: Die cuts completely missing from the 12-stamp side. Found in a small-town post office in North Carolina (no, not by me!) when the discoverer overheard another post office patron complaining that the stamps (of a different #4481d) could not be separated. The discoverer examined all the booklets in the post office stock and found a another example of 4481d (and also the discovery example of 4481f). This #4481d is still unpriced by Scott, however, sales have been recorded for #4481e (die cuts missing on 8-stamp side) and that is listed by Scott at $800.

4481f [2010 Holiday Evergreens / Christmas booklet stamps, tall format] DIE CUTS MISSING ERROR: Die cuts completely missing from the 12-stamp side AND die cuts completely missing from the bottom four stamps of the 8-stamp side . This is the DISCOVERY EXAMPLE that was submitted to Scott for the #4481f listing and about which a page-one article was published in the August 13, 2012, issue of Linns Stamp News. I have not heard of any other examples having been discovered. Found in a small-town post office in North Carolina (no, not by me!) when the discoverer overheard another post office patron complaining that the stamps (of a #4481d) could not be separated. The discoverer examined all the booklets in the post office stock and found a couple examples of 4481d, but only this one example of 4481f. This #4481f is unpriced by Scott, however, sales have been recorded for #4481e (die cuts missing on 8-stamp side) and that is listed by Scott at $800. This #4481f is apparently the only recorded example and deserves a higher valuation.
