Many thanks, I would never have seen that. In fact I can only see the difference in the bottom pair I can't see what is different in the top pair even with your marking.

Now I know I have 2 sports. :-)

Ahh! I was looking at the shading. I can't get a clear enough zoom-in image at the moment (I'll maybe have to try and scan again). Look at the background shading (if you can zoom in); it's made up of a sort of cross-hatcing/horizontal lines. On the lower part of the top left stamp they go from far apart, to close together, to further apart again; light-dark-light. On the common stamp, this is reversed.

I've got a sheet of commons and there is no similar change in the background betweeen each stamp on the sheet and I feel it looks deliberate.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the scans! :D I think I can see the differences you've pointed out, especially the P. I haven't got mine yet. :(

Dunno mate, until I see it, try 600dpi when you scan again, so we can see the shading proper

The "wonk p" I have has different shading as well. I don't have the "outie" sport yet.

I guess Stampscat is reffering to the classification of belly buttons which can be described as either "innies", the belly button is in a depression, or "outies", the belly button sticks out :D

Here's another scan of the shading on the stamps (common on left, sport on right) which will hopefully show the difference a bit better.

Plus, I'm glad someone else can also see it in the flesh as it were!

I have what appears to be the shading sport but without the wonky P HERE. The stamp with the different shading is on the right.

Have a full sheet and shading seems to vary within the sheet, so i wouldn't be declaring a new sport just yet, but if you have a good one scan it and let the experts decide. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
