E is for EFOs


"Errors, Freaks, and Oddities" refers to misprints, misperfs, and other stamp production errata.

Perforations shouldn┬╣t run down the middle of the stamp; ink shouldn't be smeared or blobby; elements of the art shouldn't overlap — or be missing.

Errors in design occur as well, such as on the notorious 1994 Legends of the West stamps, where the wrong Pickett brother was shown.
