    To me the PSE-grading of such "modern" imperforated stamps looks
    senseless at best or perverted at worst.
    There are still plenty of units left of most "modern" US imperforates.
    So you just have to cut out the center stamp from a bloc of 9 or
    maybe from a corner-bloc of four or a selvage-bloc of 6 to produce
    such a graded-100 stamp.
    A such produced "rarity" means the destruction or at least damaging
    of the other stamps from the unit,where it was cut out.
    When people pay more for the graded-100 stamp,than an intact
    unit would cost,it is what I call a perversion.

    J stamp.jpg This painting was done by Yuliya Zelinskaya In Russia I might make it into a Canadian stamp for her, This is a proto type and will likely change. 1636344005129.png This second one, I will have it made. She is on the stamp with another painting she has done.

    Richard,
    I don´t get it.What is meant with reverse colours ?

    Yes. What it means is they were supposed to print the red and blue first then the black over it to give highlighted flag wrinkles, The error was they printed the black first and went over it with the blue and red, They corrected there mistake but some were sold. Not many were used just on first day covers. They also had blurred country names Miss spelling, lots of errors in this line off stamps.Would make an interesting study of multiple stamps. To really see the blue and red over the black click on the used one i scanned it at 1200, The black is dull looking behind the colors. Just sent for APS cert today.

    O.K. Richard,
    now I understand.Barely visible on a scan.
    Obviously the printing of this set brought the printers to their limit.
    Michel notes,that many accidental faults of this series exist,what cannot
    get listed in the catalogue,but what are in demand by specialists,
    especially on letters.
    The Sc.328 looks like a changeling to me.
