I bought this stamp many years ago since I thought it was very unusual to have a stamp printed on the gum side. It seems like it should be very unusual, but the Unitrade value (2015) is only $25. Were a lot of sheets issued for this stamp or did it just never catch on? It really seems to be cheap compared to similar errors in other countries.

Hi Harvey

Could you post an image of the stamp in question.

To dispel two myths in the hobby:

- Just because a stamp contains an error, doesn't mean it's valuable.

- Just because a stamp is old doesn't mean that it is valuable.

With a catalog value of $25, it would tel me that the stamp can be a bit difficult to find, but not overly so, and that it is available in the marketplace.

A guess on my part would be either supply or demand...Happy

But you are correct in that this variety does not have significant value in the marketplace. Here is one that recently sold for a few dollars.

The stamp just looks like the normal 6 cent centennial black with no gum on the other side and a bit shinier on the picture side. Does anyone know how many were printed? For gum-sided stamps there's usually only a few sheets. My gut tells me that since these are so common they probably did almost a whole run with the blank gummed sheets upside down.
