Thanks for informations, Frank and Steeljam ! :thumbr:

I try to be a serious collector, so it's done ... I hope I will be lucky and that the team will agree to my request :D

The Imperfection appears only at r1 c5 on my sheet. I checked my commons and it turns out I have a single specimen of it for display, which is nice. :D
Well spotted Dried Frog!

I'm a bit lost, :?

stamps without red dot are the oldest or the most recent? I ordered my sheet the day after their release ... and it has a red dot.

If I order a new sheet today, will I have one without a red dot? :?:

Checked with Ian. All sheets in the Emporium have the imperfection.

I have one that does not and I bought it the day the stamps came out.

Thank You, interresting ! :thumbl:
Well, taking into account what Frank/Steve/Ian say, and what the Catalog shows, if someone has a sheet without a red dot to trade / sell, I am interested !
Thank You ! :wink:

Oook!

I just got a whole bunch of LBEs from my Season Tickets*, and among the Flora and Fauna I noticed there was a label without the "LBE".

I sent Steve a scan

Nice spotted! :thumbl:
I have one but I hadn't noticed it! I was focused on the color differences for this LBE! Excellent! :D

New items for the catalogue.
While checking my spares for sale I discovered a few stamps no in the catalogue.

Excellent ! :bounce:

But I humbly think that stamps with imperfections must be checked and validated by several people before being integrated into the Catalogue. We must be certain that they were present on at least several sheets in a specific location. In addition, this kind of flaw could be easily reproduced by scratching a stamp a bit ... unless the surface of your items is completely shiny.
But you are the master of the Catalog :wink: ... and one of the greatest connoisseurs of discworld stamps, so I trust and imagine that it is an imperfection that has been repeated several times. The best thing would be for other people to confirm that they also have these stamps in their possession... :D

Just look carefully at the 'Thieves ’Guild Twelve Pence' and 'Four Pence Petty Theft' from 2017, there are a lot of them with black ink missing in the last prints (white spots placed completely randomly). And by rubbing a little, I can remove even more black ink in certain places ...

But for darker / lighter / blurred stamps I fully agree! :thumbr:

The series of 'gods and guilds' of 2019 is full of them, some are so blurred that the black lines are clearly doubled! (especially the 'Merchants ’Guild 1p', which is the perfect example for studying this type of difference) ... I was planning to do a little post on this in a short time.

The 'Thieves ’Guild One Penny Protective' from 2014 is very interesting also there are at least 3 different levels of clarity, but highlighting the brightest, it's perfect!

Many thanks for these additions to the Catalogue ! :D

There also appears to have been a recent reprint of 'Horse and Hare Farthing' and 'Baron’s Castle Farthing' from 2018, with a more intense (more bluish) hue ... Muba talked about it on his facebook :thumbl: .

I checked and it's true. I have both types of sheets.

I agree about the marks. They must be backed-up with other examples.
I am also careful about the shades. If stamps are left out in the sun they can lighten.
