FREAKS & ERROR

Here are some of the freak stamps that came my way in my career as a stamp dealer. A few others have been sold so their images are no longer available. What is available on this page is also available for sale so make me an offer I can't refuse. :-)

This is a Singapore Issue, Stanley Gibbons Catalogue # 937, 25th Anniversary of Singapore Zoological Gardens and Launch of New "Fragile Forest" Display. Stamps are multicoloured and printed on Phosphorised paper and self-adhesive with a perforation of 12 x 11.

This is a Bulgarian Issue commemorating New Year 1988.

The green leaves are misaligned.
