United States/Covers & Postmarks : PSE Curiosity?

If all goes according to plan, I am going to show you three images of two PSE covers from the 1850s.

First the front of the cover I'm curios about showing the corner indicium. Next the inside of that cover showing the reverse of the indicium with color. Last, the inside of a different cover showing the reverse of its indicium with what I am presuming is the normal reverse imprint without color.

Is it uncommon for the color to be printed on the inside of the envelope as shown on the second image?

Thanks,
Bruce

re: PSE Curiosity?

I can't remember where I read it (maybe in Scott US Specialized), but it is often found where envelopes were botched during manufacture with errors, mistakes, bloopers, goofs etc. While they will see a premium for whatever the printing mistake was, most do not command large values.

I should look closer at my catalog but it appears that this some kind of mistake but I just don't know what to call it, yet.

re: PSE Curiosity?

It's definitely a production error printing the design on what became the inside of the envelope after the paper was folded.

Thanks for the comments. I will do a little deeper digging in the PSE realms to find out more.
