Beacon Stamp Issue

5c Beacon on Rocky Mountains top left plate block of ten

Scott Catalogue USA: C11
Description:

The 'TOP' marking was incorrectly transferred to the left-hand side of vignette plate #19597, resulting in both the red and blue TOPs being printed over each other. Conversely, the 'TOP' marking does not appear on the right-hand pane on sheets printed from that plate. This was the only plate where this occurred.
