17. Wide-spaced overprints/Bureau precancels: Wide-spaced overprints are most often seen on the 1929 Kansas-Nebraska issues and on the 1959 postage due stamps. The cause was misapplication of the overprinting plate. Part of the overprint intended for a single pane of the four-pane sheet was misregistered vertically into an adjoining pane. Thus, the extra gap between two overprint rows that was intended to skip the interpane gutter then fell within a pane. These are common enough on the Kansas-Nebraskas to be valued at under $100 beyond the value of the basic stamps in most cases, but the value is considerably more for the postage dues. Certain Bureau precancels are known with the same type of flaw.


Type 17: Wide-spaced overprints, such as that seen on this strip of three of the Kansas-Nebraska overprint, occurred when the overprinting plate was misapplied.
