60. Color misregistrations: By definition, this phenomenon involves stamps printed in two or more colors. Causes and effects are varied, from simple misregistration of a second color printed on a second pass, to misregistrations several stamps in length on modern web presses. Simple freak misregistrations between colors can be startling. Value depends upon the degree of misregistration, the colors involved and whether misregistration is a consistent problem on the issue involved. For instance, it is hard to find a precisely registered 1975 10¢ D.W. Griffith stamp. A high percentage are flawed.


Type 60: These are examples of color misregistration from different eras and different equipment (Left to right: Scott 2285b, 1432, 294, 294).
