I have come across this 1970 souvenir Sheet in Imperforate condition. Scott does not mention an imperforate version. Does anyone with a Yvert & Tellier or Michel catalog have a catalog number and possible value for this sheet. Thanks in advance.Image Not Found

I have a older Michel catalog from 1985, it mentions only a perforated block. Michel Block 17. I did find it on a dealers web site with the Michel number Block 17B.

re: Dahomey Scott# C118

I have a Michel catalog for this area from 2013, and the imperforate sheet is not listed.

But what the dealer did by calling it by calling it Block (souvenir sheet) 17B is consistent with Michel's nomenclature, where perforated stamps have the suffix A and imperf stamps have the suffix B, when both types exist (or, I guess, when they catalog it).

Since this was a French colony, I'm wondering if someone who has a French-language catalog for French colonies might be able to find a listing for the imperf.

I could be wrong, but I think it's also true that the stamp printers for at least some of the French colonies often created imperf examples for sale at a higher price. Maybe Michel considers these enough of a postal contrivance that the stamps fail to meet their listing criteria?

By the way, the 2013 cv for the mint perf souvenir sheet is €10.00

Thank you. Using the Michel number of 17b, I found one on Ebay with a folder for sale. I couldn't find any on Hipstamp or Delcampe until I checked the topic of Space on Delcampe. I found some imperforate sheets that way. Prices are all over the place.
