A wet printed pair that appears to be imperf between. Actually a perforation error.


A few sheets of the 10c Blue were Squat printed.
This means that the paper was put on the press sideways and hence shrank vertically instead of the normal horizontal shrinking that distinguishes the Wet printings.
The only known examples of these printings are stamps that have been precancelled.
