Have you noticed that the rope on the left side is reversed?

This is easier to spot than the bubbles.

Thanks Ponder for publishing the pics, and I have one of the border sports as well as the bird sport so very happy :D

Thank you too Steeljam for the other sport spotters. I found the Missing Temple too. Double whammy :D :lol: :D

This Discworld(-ish) stamp from Colin Edwards has 3 separate sports which can be viewed at:

As spokesperson for St Hilary's Patent Patience Products Inc. I can confirm that our lawyers, Messrs Sue Grabbit and Runne ( a much-respected firm recommended by Private Eye) will be contacting Mr Edwards' lawyers.

I think Colin needs some apostrophes.
It should read S'ain't Hilary

I have one with no writing on the selvage which is half the width of the selvage on the other sports.

There may be more than one of course but the sport I've spotted on the new Sto Helit 4p is 3rd from the left on the 2nd row of the mini-sheet and is the missing wisps of hair to the right of Susan's face.

Anybody spot anything more cunning?

No I didn't (yet). This really looks like a no-brainer!

The perforated area of the Sto Helit 1p in my LBE was taller than the first (common) stamp I bought and has selvage below of 3 roses.

Alas I have been unable to find any difference in the printed areas so I doubt whether the LBE stamp is a sport. :cry:

In 2 of my LBEs I had 2 sto helit 1p stamps. Now sometimes this means one is a sport but I cannot see any difference.

Anyone found the sport yet?

Here's the 2 differences I could see, first with the stamps side by side as they came out the LBEs here then with the differences highlighted here
