The stamp map galleries include both stamps and emberellas.
Should I extend the other galleries to include emberellas?
How about ephemera.

Hi !

I am checking my LBEs from 2012, and I realized that the LBE 'Special 2012 Spring Fling' has two versions:
'normal' and 'stretched' (we can see it very well).

I measured the width of the 'spring fling' label and the height (from the base of the red shape to its top): there is a significant difference!

I did not notice any difference in color between the two types.

I was lucky because I only have two copies of this LBE! :shock: Is the ratio 50/50 ?

Maybe a new entry for the Catalogue ?

Well, I said there was no difference in color... but in the light of day, the no-streched is a little bit lighter :oops:

One of my LBEs is slightly taller, by about 2mm and has a darker hue. Well spotted.
Another for the catalogue.

All the stamps with that ?If yes, you have a special one (maybe the first ones printed had this defect on all stamps, and then there was a correction, but a stamp was not corrected by mistake)

The sheet on the catalogue is my sheet. The sheet is still available so serious collectors might want to order a sheet of the other version.
