Hi. I''ve just found these 2 Machins in my collection but can''t find the flaws in my GB pt 4. However mine is 1981 issue. Can anyone shed light please? They are both 1p crimson. One has a white flaw across queens neck, like a choker and the other has a scratch through the stamp from bottom of hair, passed end if eye and tbrough front of dress.

Hi Stephen,

Its definitely a flaw you say and not a scratch as the post cancel runs with it is all I wonder??

Whilst I say that the fact it only runs across the neck does suggest a misprint. I have not seen this anywhere but I have little knowledge on Machines as was really only introduced to them from this site, I never took any notice of them until then which was only a few months back so I cannot say. I did take an interest in faults but its not well informed, so I cannot be of much help other than look at the stamp closely to make out if a scratch otherwise well worth keeping if a flaw.

These are the stamps I keep if received, just in case???
