I’m going back on topic of Czechoslovakian stamps for a while, as I’ve got few more (minor) color shifts / registration errors to display. If somebody has access to specialized POFIS-catalog, I’d be very interested to know if some of these are listed.
First I have a 1954 definitive stamp with minor perforation shift. The inscription should appear on bottom of stamp, not below:
1954 Czechoslovakia, definitive series. 40 Halery, mailman. Michel #884. A small perforation shift. CTO-used.
Next I have a 1966 commemorative from the Czech wildlife series. I have a feeling that this kind of minor color registration errors are somewhat common on multicolored series as this. I’ve got similar looking small color shifts also for the 40 halery and 1 koruna stamps on this series too.
1966 Czechoslovakia, Czech wildlife. 30 Halery badger. Michel #1661. A minor shift of blue color. CTO-used
Finally on the line I have a 1974 stamp commemorating the 5th anniversary of the new constitution. As some might know, in late 1960s there was a political uprising in Czechoslovakia, and the once united Czechoslovakia was turned into federation between Czech Socialist Republic and Slovak Socialist Republic in 1969 to address some of those issues. I’ve seen lots of small color shifts on this particular stamp, but the below copy is by far the largest I’ve seen. As this is a very small sized stamp (about the size of small sized definitives), the shift of blue color is just few millimeters.
1974 Czechoslovakia, 5th anniversary of new constitution. Michel #2179. A minor shift of blue color.
