Major Error: Unique Rotary Printing Press Error. Scott #1592, 1977 10¢ Freedom to Petition Stamps Vertical Strip of 5 Different Error Stamps In Complete Pane of 100, Mint Never Hinged. This unique 1977 Americana 10¢ Right to Petition issue rotary press error (Scott #1592 variety) affects each of 5 stamps differently out of its original full pane of 100 stamps.The error is not merely an ink smear, but the actual printing record of a piece of surface paper starting to be torn away from the sheet and the havoc the separating piece wrecked on the remaining sheet. The printing shows the piece going through transitional stages into becoming a foreign object that ultimately falls off the sheet. The paper began to separate in the top stamp (Position 48 on the sheet) and started working its way down the 8th column.
The separated part apparently flipping over, crumpled or otherwise deformed while taking a little more paper with it (through Position 68), and shows printed impressions of it becoming a foreign object (fully dislodged from the sheet) by Position 78, through its last trace before falling off at Position 88. Positions 38 and 98 are normal stamps. It's what's in between that are the multiple errors.
Examining the close-up scans, you can see matching impressions partially outlined in purple ink of where edges and parts of the dislodging paper migrated from the start of the paper separation through each migration in which the separating paper folded, crumpled or otherwise and continued to deform until eventually separating and falling off. The Sheet is Mint Never Hinged in its original form as issued.
Obviously, the stamps where the paper separated from the sheet were thinned in the printing process that created the errors. This item is in the category "Stamps\United States\Errors, Freaks, Oddities". The seller is "abctoo" and is located in this country: US.
